Westons Cider seems to have the most diverse range of readily available ciders in England in places like supermarkets and everyday pubs. Not only do they bottle and can most of this range (such as the previously reviewed Wyld Wood and Vintage Cider) but many of them also appear ‘on draught’ as real ciders. Flat Tyre is also available in this manner, but I have generally enjoyed it from the can, especially on train journeys.
If you like nut brown ales, try one of these!
Acting on a tip from the regular boozers in my pub, I headed on over to Marks & Spencer to grab a bottle of their port, festively marked down from £16 to £8 for the holidays!
With late autumn’s inclement weather and the colds that she brings, it is only fitting that one should delve into a new bottle of green ginger wine for restorative purposes. For me this time around it is not the classic Stone’s, but rather the accurate knock off: Tesco’s Green Ginger Wine.
“If ever you rest amongst the elderflower, foxgloves and swaying summer grasses of Kingcombe Meadows, prepare for a performance. A nimble golden harvest mouse, no larger than your thumb, uses its talented tail to somersault from stem to stem in search of wild barley and floral flavours. We’d give this grassy gymnast a gold medal every time!”

This is the story of a whacky beer that I shared with my Polish housemates mere moments before setting off from my home in York to the train station, where I would begin my journey back to Canada.
