    Was that me you were referring to Dave??!!! Rolled out the door of the 7 Stars after missing 2 buses at about half 9 when the "screeching" (Irish music) began.

    Paid a flying visit to the Seven Stars on my way home and had a quick Arbor Ales Beech Blonde which was ok, but my taste buds had been frazzled by molten chocolate. Also had a look round to see if I could greet our latest forum member - sadly failed.

    Several contenders this week, the choices inevitably boosted by a heavy session with RogerB last night! However, by a nose, it's got to be Newby Wyke's 'Kingston Topaz' a superbly hopped golden ale.

    Yes, I missed a 376 myself and had half an hour to spare so nipped over to the Seven Stars in the hope of there being someone at the bar repeatedly shouting "drink!".

    That was about half 10 though, the screeching and dancing was in full flow.

    I usually get the 54 at night, but if the timing is right I prefer the 376.

    Shame I wasn't there a little earlier, might've been able to spot you!

    Yes, I was there - had a very enjoyable evening.

    I'd normally agree with you about the APA, but Croydon seems to have been flooded with it recently, so I didn't try it last night. My favorite was the Bazens Black Pig Mild, although I thought the Pictish Brewers Gold and Westerham Puddledock Porter were pretty good too. Apparently the best seller of the night was the Blue Monkey BG Sips.

    Might head back tonight for a swift one, as I didn't get to try the Southport.

    Bazens - Salford
    Pictish - Rochdale
    Southport - well guess where that's from.
    Blue Monkey - Ilkeston
