I've got a list of a few bars in Seattle that got it last year so I'm hoping to score when they get it this year. I've heard great things about the Younger, just hoping I can experience for myself.

May I respectfully suggest you arm yourself with at least 3 bottles, (each) then once at serving temperature, drink them all during a lazy afternoon when you don't have much on, and then evaluate the "warm British beer" experience. I know it may seem strange to some, but it is vital that it is served at about 55 degrees, and not frozen to within an inch of it's life!!!

Anyone who follows this through to the letter should be amply rewarded with a big stupid smile, and malty tastes to die for!!!

Oh, then

Fullers London Pride,
Marston's Pedigree,
Courage Directors,
Fullers Golden pride (expensive)
The British Pub a few blocks from my house has Fullers ESB on cask. Couldn't agree more about how delicious it is. I would kill for that kind of malt taste

I've never had it on cask, but that is a delicious beer. I prefer the London Pride, but they're both great.

I can't see if one loves La Fin Du Monde how he can't love Chimay (though my favorite is the Grand Reserve)
In these two beers rest the judgement of all other beers to me..

I love it.

Lagunitas Imperial red
Surly Furious
2nd Shift Brew Cocky (falconer flight hops, yum)
Schlafly TIPA
Stone Arrogant Bastard
Brother Thelonious

Yea, I picked 6, but isn't that the number we should be using anyway?

Also, a beer does not go onto my list unless I've had it multiple times. Sorry rare beers that I have loved. I cannot be as sure of you.
