The Real Ale Club

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon2113, Feb 17, 2011.

  1. We always knew the Sneck lifter as " the latch key"...my granfdfather used to walk to the local pub (in the middle of the country..we are talking 1920 ish) with 3d in his pocket ( the latch key) he would then regale the visiting patrons with local stories and ********. At closing time granny sarah would send the horse and cart for him (no driver...just the horse and cart) the landlord would pile my grandad into the cart , smack the horses are se and send him on his way. the horse would know the way home. :¬))

    Ding Dong! Badgers ale on offer at Tesco 3 for £4. So we have got:
    1. Golden Glory
    2. Fursty Ferret
    3. Tanglefoot
    Mr manny want to join in, so we're splitting the beers 50-50.
    Supping the Golden Glory now and it's very fruity (bottle says delicate floral peach & melon aroma) and quite light compared to the usual dark scrunty ales I tend to go for. Lovely colour, clear as a mountain stream. Not sure I could drink a lot of it though.

    Arrr, I'll set aside the Ferret and the Tanglefoot for tomorrow.
    Or I can do it tonight, as I won't be around for most of tomorrow night due to this poxy party I've been ordered to attend. Right sociable little ray of sunshine I am, eh?

    Mr manny didn't like the Golden Glory mind. Said it was like drinking a flower arrangement. [​IMG]
  18. At 4:00 pm I am opening the Tanglefoot.
