A good point, very well made.

But I couldn't be bothered to walk into the bar for a glass glass and wanted my first pint to last a while (until Mrs. Blerk finished her shift) so I just went with the plastic.
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

It's time for Shadowplay!





Another delicious oatmeal stout. Love it.

We went out for a meal on Thursday night to celebrate my eldest getting her GCSE results.

It was a pub that I'd never visited before, in a village called Mamhilad, between Pontypool and Usk.

T'woz only a small pub, so I was surprised to find a choice of 4 guest ales....so it seemed churlish not to sample them all. :D

I worked left to right, and started with Bass, then Speckled Hen, then Butty Bach, and finally Abbot Ale.

The stand out beer for me was the Abbot, which had a delicious caramel/toffee note to it.....absolutely gorgeous.



Last week we had a change from the Doom down the local, and had Reverend James on instead. I have to say I preferred it to Doom Bar. Sadly it was all gone went we went down last night, and Doom was back on.  Now gonna twist the Landlord's arm add Abbot ale to the list of beers we want him to get in for a change from der Doom.

Requested guest beers are now...

Abbot ale

Double Dragon

Brains Bitter

Hobgoblin

Mamhilad

Doesn't sound very Welsh. Are you sure you weren't in Iraq?

Went down to the local last night, to their annual cider and beer festival.

20 ciders...........and 3 beers!!!! ::)

All the 3 ales came from the same brewery, and all were disappointing.....so it was then back on the regular Doom Bar.

I did sample 2 ciders at the end of the night, one was very nice, the other so so.

Good news is The Rev James will be back on for Monday night, and when that's gone there is a barrel of Brains Bitter awaiting.....which is a bit of a sweetener after the farcical beer festival. :-\

Called in to the Star in Mamilad for a pint of Abbot Ale when out on my jollies earlier....then ended up in the local for a pint of Doom.

Picked up 4 pint cans of Carlsberg from the garage to finish the night. 8)
