These are entries in my beer drinking notes, all the beers from breweries starting with the letter A, plus a few more recent additions. Abbeydale - BLACK MASS ***** 6.6% the name and taste suggest something potent, pagan and archaic – a dark mysterious beer with a rich aroma of hops. . Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Abbeydale BRIMSTONE ***** 3.9% Amarillo hops give this a nice shiny look and a very smooth taste - fine session ale. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Acorn HERSBRUKER 5% 5/5 Deceptively soft tasting ale, disguised as a session ale, but one to treat with respect. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Acorn GORLOVKA IMPERIAL STOUT –– 6% ***** Oddly named Barnsley ale, but a fantastic taste. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Acorn OLD MOOR PORTER ***** 4.4%. Delightfully creamy beer that should be baked into cakes. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Allendale - BLACK GROUSE 4.0% **** A mild with a hint of porter, smooth session ale with a slightly sweet texture to it. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Allgates MOSAIC 4.2% ***** A rich tasting fruit cocktail beer with pine and mango among its mixed flavours. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Allgates – NAPOLEON’S RETREAT 3.9% **** A traditional ale, and a good benchmark ale for beginners Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Anarchy Brewery – SINISTAR 4.3% ***** Conservative and traditional despite the name but a fine ale nevertheless. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Archers - BLACK JACK PORTER ***** Archers - Dark, rich, almost liquor like, and quite delicious. Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Archers MARLEY’S GHOST –***** 7% Strong sugary syrupy beer that leaves in no doubt that it is one to treat with respect – You wish you could drink it all night, but you’d be a fool to try. . Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Archers - WINTER WONDERLAND **** 5.2% A strong Winter Ale that definitely has the right warming effect. . Real ale – first tasted at a beer festival Auld Brewery Company – VANILLA WHISKY STOUT 7.4% ***** A very strong ale, with just a hint of real whisky added. A nice creamy ale with a subtle Aftertaste. It makes me sad that its trength means it can’t be treated as a session ale and imbibed all night. Real ale – first tasted in a pub (Plungington Hotel, Preston). Castle Rock – Sherwood Reserve 4.5% ***** A dark hoppy ale, somewhere between a mild and a porter, with a great after-taste. Real ale – first tasted in a pub (Plungington Hotel, Preston). Ilkley Brewery – MARY JANE – 3.59% **** A light, clear golden citrus tinged ale, and keep its head nicely. It is very refreshing and the name remind drinkers of the Ilkley Moor folk song of course. Real ale – first tasted in a pub – The Guild Ale House, Preston). Arthur Chappell
