    A few hours DIY at my in-laws resulted in a lovely Sunday lunch and a quartet of Lidl beers, under the Hatherwood brand. I shall report back later (after I've sat through the last nerve-shredding episode of Line of Duty!)

    I look forward to your tasting notes, as there's a Lidl opening near to me in 2 or 3 months time, so that's 4 places to shop for ale within 300 yards of one another!

    The Purple Panther is very reminiscent of Guinness Export, smooth but with a full body and bags of coffee / toffee tones. Leaves plenty of taste in the mouth too.

    Edit. Thought this was 5%ish, but it's 6.3!

    Well, the summer season seems to have started so something cold and suitably quenching required . . .




    I also sought something out today, more of which later . . .

    I take my little used old Picasso out for a run regularly to keep the battery in good order, so diverted to a Lidl several miles away to check the store out, so . . .

    Yes, it's like a dark ale with a shot of coffee in the mix. It sounds awful but it's really delicious.

    Mmmmm beer. What beer are we drinking tonight?

    Had to nip up the Town on an errand, so sat in the Crown Posada listening to some blues on the gramophone, with . . .






    I also called into Fenwicks earlier and now have a weighty satchel on my shoulder, more of which later . . .

    It's a national disgrace, drinking at lunchtime. No wonder the country's going to rack and ruin (etc! etc!)

    Enjoy. It's only jealousy talking.

    A bit of local large San mig as long as the power cut doesn't continue long and everything warms up in the fridge

    I resurrected my old Lands End “Squarerigger” this week as I needed a day bag. Must be well over 30yrs old now.



    Took it to the Town yesterday and it proved to be very handy when I popped into Fenwicks.



    More of which later . . . ;-)

    Looking forward to seeing what Mr Fenwicks had to offer.

    I have a few beers lined up tonight for our Eurovision party (I know...)

It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    Love this stuff, this mini keg is winging its way back to Oz with me next week. Mate holidayed in the UK last year and has had his eyes opened to 'proper beers'

    I see your trio and match it thus.

    I bought a few of the Whitby Jet Black direct from their factory shop, just a stone's throw from the Abbey.

    My mate gave me a pack of Camden Pale Ale.

    First time of trying and finding it really nice. Had a pint of it in Shoreditch this week too, and not too bad from the pump.

    Also tried a month or two back the M&S Earl Grey Tea beer, which went down really well. I like what they are doing with these flavoured beers and they often have a good multi buy deal on them.

    Now for the 1ˢᵗ from the Fenwicks lot . . .





    Very balanced, just the right bitterness without being overpowering.

    Beer was bloody awful, no flavour/body to it.

    I have been drinking this for the last few days and will be for the next couple of weeks
    Tasteless and fizzy but it’s better than water.
