Had some Shepard's Neame Old Red last night, €2 a bottle in Lidl at the moment, very nice stuff indeed. Paired it with a currywurst though, which was an excellent example of how not to pair food and beer. Woulda been far better off with a tasteless lager and then keep the Old Red for later, but sure we live and learn. Luckily I had half the pint drank by the time I started on the currywurst, so not all bad <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Also had a pint of Wrasslers XXXX in the Porterhouse on Nassau Street today - not bad, but I think a little too bitter for my tastes really. I also only realised after I'd ordered that they had Young's double chocolate stout, which was annoying as I've been wanting another bottle of that since I had it in the B&C (who were all out when I went back to try it again <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> ). Think I prefer the Plain to the Wrasslers, to be honest, but I'm not really a massive stout drinker most of the time anyway so I haven't drank either of them in enough quantity (or side by side) in order to really compare them.

Tapped a minikeg of Spezial Rauchbier tonight.
Its not too bad, but I remember it tasting a little nicer in Bamberg <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> Its fairly subtle on the smoke front.

Also had a bottle of that Late Red from lidl. Its not too bad at all, quite refreshing, a little thin but nice all the same. Great hop aroma off it.

Snap!

'Tis.

Though I'm bloggily speculating on WTF "Oktoberfest-Märzen" is supposed to signify. The regular Märzen with a special seasonal label?
