The Marble Brewery in Manchester has some awesome real ales. All three of their most popular ones, Manchester Bitter, Lagonda and Ginger Marble are fantastic.

Although its a bitter, whenever I'm in the UK I love a pint of John Smith's Extra Smooth. Found it once in the Hard Rock Bar at the Malta airport and I was in heaven.

That's what it's called - real ale.

A local Hampshire Brewey did a beer for the England cricket tests a few years ago. It was called Test Ickle Ease

Oh yes Batemans is a nice drop. I recall the Summer of 1992 and Class 20's on Derby-Skegness trains, getting off at Sleaford and drinking Batemans at the pub outside the station until the 'choppers' returned. Never did make it to Skegness! Hic!

There's an ale called Harvest Ale being made by John Willie Lees in Manchester, England at the moment.

Quote from the MEN:
"It is a sweet, almost port-like brew, 11.5 per cent strong, creamy and complex. It is a pure marvel and was even flagged up in the New York Times this January as one of the great strong beers. And there's nothing retro about it at all."

Now that sounds like a great ale if people are even talking about it over the pond!

My favorites are the Yorkshire 'real ales'. When I travel in the UK I only try to drink 'real ales' drawn by a hand pump, one of the ways God intended beer to be made (the others include German and Czech beers in their countries). Among my favorite and reasonably available ones in England is 'Old Pecular'.
