Last of the Festival )

Outside of the festival, I also had a Shepherd Neame I'd not seen before "Late Red", very pleasant, had a slight citrus flavour that reminded me of the Shandy my Dad used to make with R Whites Lemonade and Ruddles County.

I suddenly realized that I hadn't got round to writing up and posting my tasting notes from the Wetherspoon's Spring Beer festival, this was prompted by the fact that they've just started their autumn one

The line up for the current one looks OK, if only they hadn't tried to link every beer in some way to 1979, (the year that Wetherspoon's were established). As gimmicks go, it's relatively harmless unless you shudder at the thought of drinking a pint of "Boss Hogg."

I've just seen this petition link in a email newsletter from CAMRA, it seems that the BMA is urging the Government to impose increased taxation on alcohol and restricted pub opening hours, in a bid to stem the binge drinking culture.

If like me, you think that this will damage the responsible pubs, while not addressing the underlying problem, then please sign this No. 10 petition.
