    I think he's wasting his time full stop.

    The article states there's no such thing as English Red ale. However, that hasn't stopped the brewers! I really enjoyed BrewDog '5am Saint' when it was availible in cask and more recently Magic Rock 'Rapture' and Rat 'Red Rat'. Be interesting to try this Adnams version.

    I was talking to my neighbour who grows hops (strictly speaking he was talking to me), who said that the season was pretty bloody awful, but that the rain and what sun there was in August encouraged the hops to fill out well. Interestingly, he said most of his Goldings were exported to the USA: perhaps drinkers there are now wanting beer that tastes of hops rather than "tropical fruit", whatever that may be!
