Another week, another riverside...

Sunshine, and a pint of Landlord (yeah, with sparkler, but I didn't want to be churlish).

Hard work, this research business.

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

    Sorry to mess up your comments, Sarah, delete some if you can.

  3. 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-form

    I 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.

  4. Good grief. We certainly don't have those down here (AFAIK - I'm a lager fan).
