And I've never heard of the Famous Grouse bird. Inaccurate pricks.

Just bought a bottle of Trooper from the local Morrisons, because I can't resist a good gimmick. Will drink it later and see if it's as bland as most people seem to think.


It was.

What would it do for your image though?

CAMRA is hardly cool . . . or are you joining in an ironic way?

I'm currently drinking a Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Traditional Kentish Ale. Shut up, it was on offer. It's OK. Slightly sort of floral taste with a slight bitterness too. I haven't drunk beer in a long while and it's still not really exciting me so it must not be that great.

That's made by Shepherd Neame and tastes a bit like Spitfire, so yes, it's not that great.
The Westmorland and Yorkshire Bitter ales in the same range are much better.

Had one of these last night:

Proof that if God does exist he should stop fucking around brewing beer and get on with his day job.

It's not awful but it's all a bit "meh!"

Last night I also had

It reminded me of a wheat beer in all honesty as opposed to a pale ale but it was reasonable enough but again didn't set my palate on fire.

An unfortunate name for a brewer, Goose Island.

Finally got round to The Trooper. Meh. Most bland, and uncharacteristic beer ever. I'm a little disappointed this has come from Robinsons.

Also went to the Hawkshead Brewery over the weekend, they've a beautiful Beer Hall. had a Brodies Prime and a Red, both of which I'd had before but are very nice, I only wish I'd noticed the Stout before it was too late and we had to go.
