Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

What's that in your pint glass, Matt?

Well, I'm glad you asked.

It's a Young's Special London Ale, and I'm pretty darned happy with it.

Reduced hop nose.
Medium to Medium-low carbonation.
Strong yeast.
Slightly fruity esters from the British ale yeasts.
Significant alcohol at the back of the tongue.

Rich gold to caramel color, with almost no chill haze.
Quite clear, despite the fact that it's bottle-conditioned, which means that it gets its carbonation from the ongoing fermentation of the yeasts on the malt in the bottle, leaving a little dap of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. (Good pouring can reduce the haze in your glass.)

The beer is quite complex, to tell you the truth. Sold in a 4 pack, and justly so.

I must say, I wish this was more common-- I would have it supplant Bass if 't'were.

Time for a compact fluorescent bulb.
That way you can leave it on all night and still use less electricty than a hour with a regular bulb.
One of the better ways is a motion-detector light with c.f. floods.
That way you save on the electricty and the lights come on when someone walks up.

Hmm, I'm having a grape Crush. What am I doing wrong?
