Another one of those interesting beer blogs. This one's from Wirral, U.K. Home of Brimstage Brewery and Tranmere Rovers.
I found a 2.8% beer in Southport at £1.28 a pint. It was called something like Tolly English Ale, a Greene King brew, and was a real ale, unlike the Greengate Lite (why not Light?) which is a smoothflow. I tasted the Tolly's and found it weak and hoppy, the hops intended to conceal the thinness of the beer, but it didn't work.
