Time for a special ale. These briefly appeared locally then disappeared again, now they're back. They're running short on date, as you can probably understand given that the anniversary was a year or so ago, but they aren't so bad.

Also, not as dark an ale as the weather would appear to warrant. But, hey, since when has that ever been a problem?
I have made no secret of my lack of patriotism, I hope, and I even wore that as a badge, of sorts, when reviewing London Glory (here) back before, or around, the 2012 Olympics. I mean, I did see the opening ceremony of those ...

What are you drinking?  - 
 
Guinness West Indies Porter
6% ABV - porter (duh)

Biscuit-y and chocolate-y malt in a good looking package that makes one think that this is some venerable brew from the days of yore. Nice and fitting for a wet evening with the children having the pox and not enough time to have done any work. Well worth it.

Review will no doubt follow in the future.

It's time for another Sulwath ale and this one is apparently all about sports and things. The last sports that I played were cricket (so unutterably badly that my six bowls lost my team the match convincingly, allowing something ridiculous like 20 runs in a match that had the winning score of something like 36) and badminton (wherein I injured my wrist so badly I haven't been able to play since).

Oh, I played football, but now I may have a broken elbow (still haven't got that checked out) and my right ankle doesn't work properly.

Point? Oh! Yes, my point! Yes, this ale is dedicated to sports. It doesn't seem to have harmed it all that much.
Another day and another ale. I have found and procured more of the lovely Batemans Mocha (here) for 79p a pop, which has made me immodestly happy, and I have decided to celebrate by trying another of the Christmas ales from m...

Tonight I sample the delights of what can be done with enough treacle and a natty little cardboard box. Somehow putting ale in a box makes the whole thing seem classier and more special. Who am I to argue with a cardboard box?

It is a rather delectable ale. Locally it is sold out, but I got a few in and I am very glad that I did so.
Something a bit different. I have reviewed an album with ale and I have talked about beers to cry into on Valentine's Day. Now I thought I would start reviewing some speciality ale on a Sunday, because it is alliteration and ...
