In February I wrote about An old mans off license I found in Mullingar called The old stand. I had been disappointed that the adjoining pub of the same name did not have any craft beer. Well having gone there yesterday I can tell you I was very wrong.
I myself had a Ruddles county. This was a tasty English Bitter. I had no camera or notebook but it was a well balanced bitter with some fruit flavours, like Orange for instance.
This is one Greene King beer I would try again. My only criticism is the clear glass. My wife smelled it and she said it smelled skunked but it was fine to me and I think she was mistaking the hops for skunkiness as she says the same about Boston Lager which is very hoppy.
Anyway after dinner in an Italian restaurant I went back to the off license and bought all the beer in the picture. Most of which was available in the pub by the way.
I wrote a review on the pub here.
