I actually meant to post this with the other lists, but had a difficult time deciding. This list fluctuates quite often, and is really a mood, meal, atmospheric dependent list.
My 5 favorite Ales:
||Cask conditioned at the brewery in Edinburgh. Tough act to follow.
||mmmm…fresh hop smell & flavor, great body. Drink locally.
||Great anytime beer, another regional brewer.
||The beer that started microbrewing. Debauchery of malt & hops
||One of the few great Real English ales you can get over here.
It was a difficult batch of choices. Those who know me know what a feat this is.
