The Parkin Porter went off the other night so I am now on this :





I'm not a big fan of liquorice but I'll try anything once. It's lovely. The liquorice flavour is not strong but just enough to bring out the malty flavours.
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

Awww, Blerky.....I'm so soddin' jealous! :-\

There's simply not enough ale drinkers in my local to justify a steady stream of guest beers. Even when the landlord does splash out and gets a guest beer in, it's nearly always a hoppy/citrusy golden/IPA type beer, coz they last longer without going off, so he don't have to sling half a barrel of beer away due to it not selling. We've tried to explain to him it doesn't sell coz no-one likes it....and that us ale drinkers would buy the guest beers if they were of the darker, more malt types....but it simply doesn't sink in!! :(

I suppose we're lucky that he gets Doom Bar in specifically for us though. ::)

If it wasn't for the Doom, we'd have nowt!

INCREDIBLY expensive  (airport prices!!!!!) and mediocre taste.

What do you term INCREDIBLY expensive Blerky? ???

Our staple Doom Bar is 3.20 a pint at the local....usually guest beers (when we have them! ::)) are normally 10-20p a pint dearer.



Had my usual 4 pints after gun club on Monday night, and have been steadily emptying the lt bottle of Jim Beam gifted me on my birthday. Tonight (or maybe tomorrow) should see the end of it.

Normally I pay 3.20 for an ale at the pub. That 330ml can I had was  3.20 too.

Back home now so I'm catching up on my postings.

The past 6 days I've mostly been on Dorada and San Miguel (apart from one VERY fuzzy afternoon where gin and tonics got involved).

Average price of a beer over there? 1.50.

It's been Hell, folks.
