Whilst a very good article on real ale, it doesn't metion the different styles of ale avaliable. You can get ales which range in colour from a very pale yellow (sort of lager coloured) through to stuff that is as dark as guinness (which was once a real ale also!).
The range of different taste sensations is just as wide, there is an ale out there which you will like. Finding it is the hard (but fun) part smiley - winkeye

There is plenty of space in the guide smiley - smiley
I guess that as it's a general article it's very good. I just wanted to point out about all the diferent types, colours tastes etc that one can get in real ale. I wasn't trying to critisise honest, I wasn't smiley - winkeye.

Never done any cellarman stuff.
I have had a tour of a (very) small commercial(ish) micro brewery as part of a project meeting a couple of years ago. After a quick (it couldn't be anything but) tour, we were told go on then have anything you want smiley - smiley.

Keltek, before the owner (Stuart Heath) sold up his little 'hobby' operation to concentrate on the main business (the Fibredata group).

He ran the operation from a room in one of the outbuildings at his house in cornwall. Trying to fill a pint glass from the outlet of a forty gallong fermenter was interesting though smiley - winkeye

I've only seen them twice, once in the brewery and once at the GBBF, but they weren't on for the session I was there for smiley - sadface

There are others in the pipe line as well, including Lager and Stout. They all went in together along with the Beer Glasses that was approved on Thursday. So hopefully soon there'll be more smiley - smiley
