    0-6 is more like a rugby score so you need look no further than Spoons Hoppy, they're doing a beer called Over The Bar from Caledonian for the upcoming Six Nations. Maybe that will do until someone comes out with a 0-6

    You know that completely washed by me until Millay explained it. It is old news now we have moved on to much improved 0-0 although I understand the experience was much the same.

    After a shite day at work today I left around 6:30 and as the nearest pub hove into view a beautiful melody filled the air,

    Nothing Could be Finer than a Ringwood Fortyniner
    In the Eeeevening

    (we really need a musical icon donít we?)

    The first pint was pure nectar and was plucked from the glass quicker than the lead bee finding the first bloom of a new Spring.

    The second was sublime in the extreme invoking a sense of angels dancing on the tongue and had me vowing to declare my BotW early.

    The third made me wonder whether I had truly been wafted into paradise or if I would wake up and find myself at Luton Airport (anyone under 30 should Google Campari and Lorraine Chase).

    A fourth pint made me think that perhaps life wasnít so bad after all.

    By the fifth pint I remembered what work I had left undone and was starting to plan the next morningís activities. At this point I decided to head home before I ended up checking into a Travelodge and turning up for work at 6:00am with day-old stubble and smelling of Tesco no-frills deodorant and Ginsters pasties.


    Having got home after a Pale Rider and a Hobgoblin I now have a different outlook on life - and am trying not to think about tomorrow morning !!

    Had a pint of Prospect Gold Rush, Slaters Queen of Hearts, Hornbeam Big Cherry, Green Mill Thirstquencher and my favourite so far this week Slaters Wee Sleekit.

    It won't win though as it's Derby Beer Fest this weekend.

    We phoned up our favourite Indian restaurant in Derby, Masala Art, which won best Indian in the Midlands last year only to be told they went out of business last weekend.

    Obviously being upmarket in Derby doesn't work. Sad.

    From one brief visit and reading these forums, selling decent ale does. You Lucky Jim, you...
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........

    Found a first for me last week. One from the Tring Brewery currently on the JDW guest list, Tring side pocket for a Toad. Had to try it for the name alone.
    Interesting straw coloured pint. Not sure I liked it so had to go back again this week and try it again....
    Still not convinced, so i'll put it up for comment.

    Hydes Heads and Tails was very good last night in The Edward Rayne, nice to see a Manc brew down here too, I'm an expat.

    So far my BOTW, but I'm out in Twickenham on Thursday so watch this space.
