    Default Real Ale Tw*ts

    Been meaning to fish out this old Viz cartoon to see if it amused anyone. 3 instances can be found at Jeffo's Beer Blog

    To busy necking the stuff to get philosophical or introspective about it. I aint the Jillie Goulden of the beer world. I am sure there are a minority of lager drinkers just as dedicated as the Real Ale Twats but I have never met any.
    The way the blogg continues about beer temperature is quite interesting.During a very hot summer some years ago I worked in friends pub part time. Everything was warm and frothy,beer,lager coca cola. No one cared as long as they got a drink. Pouring was a nightmare. Today overchilled beer is the problem. It makes my teeth ache and kills the taste of the ale.On a hot sunny day though it has to be chilled lager, beer makes me sleepy, the tooth ache keeps me awake.
    Never gone to the level of walking around with a thermometer ( not unless my Doctor was forgetful ) to check out the beer.

    If you want to get a flavour of real pub life, you cant beat Early Doors, we all know and Eddie Bell, or two, or three maybe, well i can think of four, five including him - add my footy team, i can think 16.

    Hey, Mr A, you ever been to the Circus?

    Conrad, you ever been to the Circus?

    Dave, have you ever been to the Circus?

    Please say one of you watched it, or i will look like a right Eddie Bell now!

    'tis, indeed, a wonderful series - been repeated on BBC4 recently. Not too much happens, but it's all played with warm understated humour.

    Right - here you are. Tomorrow 23.20, series 2, Episode 4 and, check this out, Historian:
    " Eddie and Joan discuss their love of circuses with the whole pub and Tommy gets a new job." !

    Back already to send you to BBC2, not 4 (so no lack-of-Freeview excuses!)

    Caught it once or twice, and enjoyed it, but having just looked at times I can see why I never often watch it, fast asleep by then

    I'll try & set the PVR for it
