I didn't want to spend too much money and time on beer because, well, English ales, while good, aren't my favorite. So, after much deliberation (laughably too much, I'm sure, in Kristina's opinion), I selected Robinson's Brewery's "Old Tom - Original" strong ale. It was, by far, the greatest beer I have had in recent memory. It had a nice color, and was intensely flavored while having a very soft texture. Just a great buy and experience. Kristina even agreed that it was "pretty good".
