And now for something positive out of Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery!
Ever since Fergie, master of the dark rums and purveyor of fine intoxications, bought a pair of dark rums for Harrison and Brad at the Burns Hotel and to his surprise Harrison quite enjoyed it, I have been eager to engage Harrison in a dark rum night. Then one night in early February, it finally happened!
During the Scotland-Ireland Six Nations Rugby match, I opted to wear my Glasgow Celtic jersey, and sup on some tasty Guinness Hop House 13 Lager!
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.
This dark mild is another one of the many reasons why I tend to visit Burns Hotel on my days off!
Sitting here on the Christian holiday of Candlemas, listening to the first three albums by Candlemass, sewing my Epicus Doomicus Metallicus patch onto my battle jacket, drinking the Iron Maiden beer Hallowed, with glowing candle in sight: I am feeling pretty in the zone. So I think a review of Hallowed is in order!
