    Well - so far Palmer's Poison is the best i had in Rugeley - everything else was Banks's Bitter, MILD (great, but some variety would be nice) and a couple of pubs in Brereton with Cocker-Hoop and Marston's Single Malt. Far better than Solihull, sadly it was just full of non-entity places - reviews on their way

    Popped into the Robin Hood & Little John in Bexleyheath (local CAMRA pub of the Year for the last 10 years - well there's not a great deal of competition) on the premise there was going to be a Burns Night bash. In the end there was a distinct lack of bagpipes, kilts and Tam O'Shanters so left after an OK pint of Cairngorm Scottish Bard, discounted to 1.95 for the evening. Always 'Spoons to fall back on with their Haggis, Neeps, Tatties & a pint deal. Nope! Sold out of Haggis so ended up with Burger and pint of TSA Winter Sporran which was better than the Scottish Bard. Bit of a disappointing evening but at least I've got some beers under my belt for the week. Spurs v Fulham tomorrow - bog all to drink there so probably another 'Spoons night pre-match. Hoppy will be pleased.

    This week has started better than last finished. A couple of top-class Ringwood Porter, more Young's 'Winter Warmer and as a little bonus, Auld Aquaintance. All in one day..........
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........

    As it is Australia Day today I am going to nominate my BotW so far as Fosters. If I find anything with a little more taste before the end of the week I may of course change this nomination

    Tchhhhhhhhh, and miss out on the XXXX? Besides, if you are using Australia as your theme, maybe you should support something Scottish?

    I guess the real challenge would be to find something with less taste.

    I don't know about Beer of the Week but I had a pint of Brentwood IPA before the Spurs game tonight and it was more like Dishwater of the Week.

    At least in your case it was in a glass, we had to watch it on the pitch!
