I needed some tinned beers (due to weight) to take away in the van over Xmas & NY, so I bought a selection of Doom Bar, Specked Hen,and Abbots. they were OK, fav from tin was Doom Bar, but as you all know you cant beat a freshly pulled one in the pub.
Another discovery whilst staying in Bristol where they drink more cider than ale it would seem, was the newish Thatchers Lemon Cider, quite refreshing, but I quite like the cloudy Haze if having more than one.
I have never really been into cider, but it is a nice change especially if not too sweet.
Another mission will be to try the "cidres" in Brittany & Normandy.
Happy new year to all.

I too like the Thatcher's Gold and Cloudy, but not had the Lemon one yet.

In Chauvigny last night, I treated myself to a couple of these.

However, as lovely as it was @ €3.90 for less than a half pint, I didn't have any more. ☹ Bl@@dy French. ☹

Cheers,

Jock. 😉

Ralph, I have never paid £7.00 for a pint, in any pub throughout my travels around the UK.................and I have no intentions of ever doing so. ;)
Doombar Reserve, which sadly hasn't been brewed at Christmas time over the last two years, was only £3.80 a pint, and that was 6.6%, the same volume as the Grimbergen winter ale. :eek:

Cheers,

Jock. :)
