It's Landlord.

In a bottle.

Curries are the best by far of the supermarket stuff. The basmati with carrot and Spinach along with chicken sag massala  is pretty damn fine for a pale imitation. Everything else in there is way more than Tescos - wine, beer.

The landlord is ok. St peters is great, as is the speckled hen in there.

Bitburger, 4 bottles for £3.30 in Waitrose.

Go nicely with one of their chicken vindaloos.

Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%, absolutely perfect. Bought it in a nine pint cask from the brewery, £21 so not cheap. Perfect companion for lamb chilli masala & Performance on the dvd.

The beer I had the other week was called Credit Crunch. Any attempts to find out who by or where are hampered by the popularity of the search term.

Anyway it was nice.

Beer names are brilliant aren't they?

You can literally call a beer anything.

Morrisons deal of the week is four bottles of Grolsh for 2 quid.  They're also doing bottle of Hobgoblin for 1.32.

Re: Beer of the day

Anyone tried that Leeds Brewery Pale Ale? 4.0% I think, not too heavy, lightly hoppy and refreshing. Asda £1.40.

Re: Beer of the day

Wetherspoons in Bingley are knocking out Elland Bitter at £1.65 a pot.  Really nice pint and very reasonable on the wallet for the bonusless bankers over the road

Re: Beer of the day

Leeds Brewery Best Bitter is really nice.

Quite amusing watching people order it at the FC on a match day as no one will say it's name, just 'that one' big_smile

Re: Beer of the day

I don't like the Leeds Pale and Best, nothing much about them flavourwise. The Elland Beers have all been pretty good when i've tried them. Just been back to England (again) and managed a few trips to pub the highlight was some beer from The Oxfordshire Brewery - the low point was that Mitchells Gold Award wasn't that good when revisited.

Re: Beer of the day

The Dark Star Full Moon supped at the beer festival was a tasty mild.

Leeds Brewery Midnight Bell is my favourite.
Always in good nick at the M.Bell on Water Lane before / after a match.

Re: Beer of the day

That Midnight Bell is lethal - got it on down our village local, 10 pints and you're talking Hungarian.

Jekyll's Gold

Re: Beer of the day

Thinking back after looking at old photos. Me and Slant we'd sometimes head to the Duck & Drake after the match - lots of others in there too - if you were a bit short on cash, two pints of 'snake bite' made up of half a pint of scrumpy and a bottle of Russian stout (12%) would set you up nicely. Three and I didn't give a fuck about Battler sneering at me either.

Went through a good few Becks last night while bouncing around the www. Very nice. Feel fresh as a daisy this morning.

I remember the Whip banning snakebites (as did a few other places) because of the effects they thought it had on their punters..... like it made any fucking difference.
