    Been on the wagon last week, so no beer of week, just tea

    However there is hope yet, weather permitting I will be down Southsea for a meeting in the Bold Forester http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/13964/ which is a Greene King desert with keg & lager

    However, time permitting I intend to at last sample the "Sir Loin of Beef"

    http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/14029/

    From the Pompey pubs site http://www.portsmouthpubs.org.uk/index.html comes this
    "Now a genuine free house, the pub features one u-shaped bar area and is a magnet for real ale enthusiasts across the south. A monthly beer festival is held, featuring a single brewery's beers at discounted prices. A friendly, first class drinking establishment. Do not be deterred by the pub's inexplicable absence from CAMRA's Good Beer Guide. Seek it out".

    Watch this space & hope it does not rain on Saturday

    Yeah, the lack of Doom Bar was a bit of a let down. Had to be the Deuchars for me - although I was intrigued by the offer of 6X from a box!

    I had two pints of some Belgian ale (I know Iam useless with foreign language!) with mind boggling 8% !

    I had them in local Wetherspoon Silk Kite today. I was quite tipsy only after 2 pints and it is not for faint hearted.

    I could taste some sort of cherry, burnt coffee and vanilla and it was very delicious.

    Get yourself down to Wetherspoon and drink Belgian Ale but DRINK RESPONSIBALTY!

    Here is one beer you won't be getting. Its called Tokyo beer and is a humungous 20%.
    According to Radio 4 news the Portman Group ( a Quango ? ) has banned its sale saying it encourages irresponsible drinking.Maybe some idiots would imbibe to excess but thats normal whatever the tipple. If you follow the logic why have they not banned fortified wines and spirits ?
    Try drinking Tokyo on a night out and you will be in bed before the TV watershed.
    If in good company I can drink a bottle of Shiraz in an evening but Tokyo is in the Port / Sherry class. It is probably something I would not drink but think it should be my choice and not be told told by whoever that I can't.

    30 quid per bottle?? No thanks! Althrough wont mind taste some of it

    I remember in my student days, I had half pint of 13% ale called Roger and Out in Frog & Parrot in Sheffield. They only sells in half. If I achieved 3 or more halfs I get certification with Bar Owner signature as proof.

    EDIT: Found this.. http://pic15.picturetrail.com/VOL600.../240631553.jpg

    I got countless certifications at home..
