/ Real ale polypins.
Have a few friends and relatives coming down for a weekend soon and looking to get a polypin of real ale in and looking for some suggestions! The following would be best;
Not Pale but not dark and chewy either (it is a long session after all)
A nice enjoyable flavor that goes down fairly easily.
I can get the usual things fairly cheap, looked at things like doom bar which don't get me wrong is lovely, but thinking maybe something a little less well known would be nice. Needs to be reasonably priced and without MASSIVE delivery charges.
Go for something local maybe? Look on it as an opportunity to get something in that you/your guests won't have had before, and you might well get to taste before you buy if you do that too.
Think there maybe something around Llangollen but i wont be getting down there before hand to try it so really location is fairly irrelevant.
'Gem' is normally my fav from them.
Bath Ales are grand. Also check out Arbor Ales and Bristol Beer Factory.
Thanks guys, will check these out!

No worries. On the real ale theme, can't help but recommend my new favourite bottled ale:
Not one for a session, but extremely tasty IMHO!
Will keep my eye out for that, I must say, I do love to try different real ales!!
These guys are great near us, mad goose, gold and origina UBU are all nice:
These guys don't do polybins yet but I do really like their beer:
Don't like purple moose???? It's brilliant, one of the best breweries round here in my opinion. Other options further east are the orme brewery, llanrwst brewery and conwy ales.
This is good ale, my local brewery, only 2 miles from my door
Not sure were you live, but the Albion in Conwy has a selection of local beers: -
You could go for a tasting session and perhaps buy a polypin based on that.
Alternatively, this brewery is pretty good: -
