    The Baird? Lovely pub, really well kept ale, but typical N10 prices :facepalm:

    Lunchtime ales? That's a slippery slope :)

    I prefer the term 'enthusiast'.

    It's not ale, but it's not piss either. Last night I had a few too many Cotswold Lagers (5%) and I didn't have any trace of a hangover this morning. Miracle lager :)

    I really like Cotswold Largers. I had a couple on the weekend then moved pubs and had a pint of Kronenburg. After the Cotswold Premium it was horrible - my next pint was an Ale.

    There's a splinter organisation of CAMRA that recognises that good beer does not have to be ale. The liberal faction is The Campaign for Really Good Beer - http://camrgb.blogspot.com/

    Is it me, or does their link to their new website just link back to the same blog?

    Was in the Beehive (Wetherspoons) yesterday, they've got rid of the 5.7% Old Empire so I was drinking a nice Autumn ale whose name I have forgotten cos I ended up having quite a few of them.

    Did anyone have any of the Youngs Christmas Ale over the 'festive period'?

    The Trinity in Brixton are currently selling theirs off for £2 a pint which is a welcome change as Youngs pubs are normally quite dear.

    4.8% and not dark like some Christmas Ales. Very similar to Youngs Special but slightly stronger. Lovely.

    I'm pretty sure I had a few halves of that in the Clockhouse on Peckham Rye. Or maybe it was my partner. (That suggests a long, amnesia-inducing session, which it wasn't, honest).

    Partner is now saying he had someone else's real ale in the Dog and Bell in Deptford.

    :oops: I should unsubscribe from the real ale thread really.

    I was in a little pub in Wigan the other week, drinking beer from theAllgates micro-brewery. It was the loveliest beer I've had in donkey's years. Only £1.90 a pint, I would've paid twice that. And there was free chips and cheese & onion sandwiches!

    There's a pub which sells Fullers beer around these parts (the otherwise excellent Harcourt Arms in Jericho). Anyway on their menu the put prices on mixes of ales - such as half a Chiswick and half a London Pride. Never seen that before.

    Had a few pints of 'Dutchman' last night watching the football. A very nice pint. 4.5%

    For nostagia sake I had a couple of ramrod and special mixes in the Spreadeagle in Camden, it's a Young's pub - ramrod out of the pumps, special in a bottle - usually you get over a pint - used to drink it years ago when I lived near Wimbledon (more Young's pubs that way)

    ramrod and spesh:cool:

    You sure it's not Special out of the pump & Ramrod in a bottle?

    And got to be more than the cost of a pint cos you're involving the cost of a bottle, hasn't it?

    marty21 my gran was in the war with bombs and shit

    actually I think you're right:oops:
    and I can't remember how much it cost (it was a few weeks ago) but I don't remember it being excessive

    My work local is a Youngs pub and I love a pint of Special so I might give this a go sometime. :)

    went there again the other day - £3.75 for a ramrod and spesh - which I thought reasonable - it's more than a pint!

    eta - not your work local - unless you now work in Camden
