Brains at the Toronado

Janet and I didn’t go to the Toronado last night because Janet was feeling a little under the weather.

However, this afternoon we decided to stop in for a quick pint. Pauly was behind the bar and he promptly served us up our first pints. Janet decided to have a Guinness, which is always a good choice. I decided to try something new. This new beer was Brains’ Dylan Smooth. Brains, a Welsh Brewery which made a very nice golden ale (Celtic Light) that was as good as Boddington’s Pub Ale decided to create a slightly hoppier golden ale and name it after the famous Welsh poet: Dylan Thomas.

Unfortunately, the Dylan Smooth didn’t live up to Celtic Light’s standards. It was unbalanced, with a taste that Janet noticed was reminiscent of Budweiser. It was a quick drink, which left me time to have a Lagunator before going home.

Sunday afternoons at the Toronado are extremely relaxing… only locals and regulars are there, and only half of the seats are full. Sure, the occasional tourist comes in, but it’s much easier to take one tourist in a sea of locals than when it’s the other way around.
