    Yes. I wouldn't describe it quite so politely. Sampled at the Wenlock, it tasted of grapefruit to me which I can't abide. I'm sure some people will love it, particularly in this weather though I might go back for some more Painted Sanctuary and enjoy the beer festival at the Snooty Fox.

    Called in at the Manor Arms in Broughton-in-Furness last Tuesday, one of my favourite pubs. I rarely get there because it's so far from home, and when I do I'm always on the way to somewhere else, so I never have more than one or two beers. The railway station is a bit more than a mile away, and trains are few and far between, so missing one can be calamitous. If I'm cycling or driving, it's a matter of maintaining sobriety. Last week I was staying at the very good National Trust camp site in Eskdale, and with the weather on Tuesday too grim for walking anywhere, I drove to Broughton (amongst other places).

    There were seven beers on the bar, and I went for two that were sitting next to each other: Hawkshead Five Hop 5% and Logan Beck Proper 4%, brewed just over two miles from the pub. Contrasting styles but both in astonishingly good condition. I sat at the table with mouth agape, in awe of the quality of these beers. I think one of the criteria for NBSS 5 is that you change your plans and stay in the pub to have another. I seriously couldn't do that, but I did give some thought to how it might have been possible, including getting a hotel room, sleeping in the car, sleeping in the gutter...

    I know that quarter marks have been outlawed by the Camra AGM, so I can't give 4.75 each. I make it 4.5 for the Logan Beck and 5 for the Hawkshead, but I could be wrong.
