Keg Beer: Back To The Future

The Salmon in Leicester had a retro drinks night on Saturday.
Manns Brown, Cherry B, Babycham and Snowball in bottles, and Double Diamond on draught.

I thought Double Diamond had gone the way of the Dodo, so this came as a surprise.
Out of the tap it dribbled, looking somewhat like flat Tizer.
The taste was of cardboard dipped in syrup. Not an experience I'm in a hurry to repeat, even though it was a bit of nostalgic fun. It seemed to take forever to drink as I watched the other punters handing over cash for freshly pulled cask ale. It wasn't long before I joined them.

It was good to have that choice. Perhaps we have CAMRA to thank for that.
Even better is that more and more forward thinking UK breweries are putting some of their excellent flavoursome beers into kegs. More choice.
Keg beer anyone? Back to the future.
