Hmmm, not much point deleting as they don't actually disappear - it just looks like I've been censoring!

Sparkler (noun) Device used up north to strip all the flavour, life and (ironically) sparkle out of beer, but to put a wodge of foam on top by way of compensation. Railed about at greater length here: https://chertsey130.blogspot.com/2011/09/can-i-have-flake-in-that.html#comment-formI had to mention it, as I am known for always ordering 'a pint of X with-the-sparkler-off-please' and it's clear from the glass in the photo that on this occasion I hadn't. Actually, I think even Landlord, a quintessential northern beer, is better without, but I was too polite (or scared) to say so.
Good grief. We certainly don't have those down here (AFAIK - I'm a lager fan).
I forgive you.
