    It was just an assumption (rash or otherwise) that I wouldn't get a better pint all week!

    Default Harveys Old Ale

    An interesting description from the non-pub related 'Caught by the River' blog:

    (Northern beer aficionados might like the description about the head on this particular pint...)

    Finally finished the Christmas Hophead, which restricted other opportunities. However, at St. Pancras station, I did pick up a bottle (500ml) of The Kernel India Export Porter (6.5%) and I'm glad I did. Wow! Really hoppy, but Porter-like at the same time. Bottle-conditioned, but one of the good ones.

    Must spend more time investigating this brewer in 2012.

    Only two to choose from this week but both excellent: Oakham Bishops Farewell and BOTW Titanic Full Steam Ahead. A traditional best bitter colour but with a lovely bitterness which demands another pint or two and at 4.4% that works very well.

    An interesting week for beer, as we approach the voting for the 2013 GBG I've been in some odd pubs and drunk some beers different to my usuals,

    Tetley's (Black Country) Bitter comes to mind although it has a Yorkshire taste and in of two pubs in one village, one was great the other was average. Old Peculiar was another beer I've not had for a while and it was pretty good, as was a Golden Pippin I had out in the sticks, Goose Eye Chinook is another superb beer I haven't had for a while but all in all I'm plumping for a Black Sheep seasonal in Ruddy Ram a porter but they don't admit it on the clip. Excellent and well balanced no overwhelming nasty patent black sourness as with, well just for example; Salamander Stand & Deliver Porter which is probably "one to avoid" never mind a BABOTW.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    A mixed,dare I say jaded,week for beer. Two pub visits,three unshattering beers:
    Badger: Pickled Partridge, a reasonable ruddy ale,fairly friuty, bit of hop.
    Badger: Tanglefoot-a dull, inoffensive thin fruitcake.
    Sheps:Late Red, seems disapointingly cloying this year, or is this just me?

    The week was redeemed by a bottle of Ascot's Anastasia's Exile Stout.Jet black crisp and moreish, with coffee and dried fruit. Much more approacheable than the Imperial Russian Stouts that I also love.
