    Late on parade as we've just got back from Macclesfield.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Harlow,Kentish Town and near Hatfield.

    Mc Mullens --IPA
    McMullens -- Bootwarmer
    Purity -- Pure UBU
    Redemption --Big Chief *
    Oakham -- Citra
    St Austell -- Proper Job *
    Greene King -- Vine Climber (house beer probably GK IPA)
    Siren -- Soundwave IPA (keg)
    Marble -- Mild *
    3 Brewers of St Albans -- Porter* (bottle)

    BOTW goes to Marble MILD.At 4.1% it may seem strong compared to a Black Country Mild (where is Soup Dragon when you need him ?) but using 8 malts it does replicate this classic beer and importantly has the wonderful dry finish which demands another pint.Served in great form in The Southampton Arms.

    Next week a walk down the lower Lee Valley into hipsterville and then some footie,here's hoping for decent ale.

    Oh Mr. Porter what am I going to do... It fell to a toss-up between the Three Sods - American Porter at the Cock, but it's just pipped to the post: BOTW Mallinsons - Porter at the Southampton, redeeming the above.

    I was in there last night and took your advice; a great beer. Popped into The Bull & Gate on the way home for a swift half, so I appear to be shadowing you.

    I had a mini tour of Kentish Town to check out some previously unvisited pubs and was pleasantly surprised by what I found .However once in the area ,it would be impolite not to call in to The Southampton Arms. Glad you enjoyed the Mild too.

    Quiet week en la casa...

    Harvey's IPA (3.5%) (b)
    Bank's Amber Bitter (3.8%) (b)
    Hogsback T.E.A. (4.2%) (b)
    Harvey's Old Ale (4.3%) (b)
    Boundary Idle Chatter (4.5%) (c)
    Harvey's Georgian Dragon (4.7%) (b)
    Sambrook's Imperial Stout (10.4%) (b)
    Vocation Imperial Kirsch (11.0%) (c)

    Working through current stocks at home. Beer of the Week was one of a newish batch of cans that the larger Tesco Stores introduced in around September / October I think (which included BrewDog's Parma Violets NEIPA). A strong beer which had its alcohol tempered by the cherry sweetness and not so thick that it was like drinking a Black Forest gateau:

    The Lord Stanley is well worth a look if in the area and inexplicably only has two reviews; maybe because it's too far out to appear on the Colonel Fawcett default pub map.
