    I am jealous Rab.... Bank's Mild one of the best ales to come out of the Black Country .... Yam Yam Nectar of the Gods. I propose Julia Banks for Sainthood.

    My uncle Jack was a Drayman at Bank's. In the days when they were delivering them big barrels with Shire Horses. One of them squashed him against a Boozer wall in Dudley. Jacked him up for a while.

    I was thinking about you today. You have to push on with that room addition mate. Just photograph everything and video it and save it for the inspector. Look out for stud warp.

    You used to be able to get a pint of mild and bitter a while back Dave, They would probably look at you sideways if you asked for it now !

    Banks's looked almost like Guiness Dave. Not quite as dark but had a great head on it that clinged to the glass all the way down. It had a cult following lol. The Churchfield Tavern... Little Lane West Bromwich. Happy days.

    the addition is wrapped in tarps tone. can't get a roof inspection winters city is closed down. forecast today heavy rain today and sunday. we have started the electrical rough in. the windows are sitting in the living room. so the forecast is good for next week so tarps off and need to install 24 seismic straps to the roof. the city inspector will look at the roof so i can get the shingles on. he knows i do not do shitty work. soldiering on tone no other option.

    My mate 3 Para Geordie Stan Richards said it was sacrilege to pollute Guinness (the God of beer) with anything else. He used to wait until the last bubble had gone from the top and it had settled before he raised it. He was truly a conoisseur.... I see him bollock many a bar maid for screwin' it up. "Treat it with the respect it deserves !!!! he used to say.

    Re: FAO truebrit

    I remember the Wetherspoons opening in Dover,and I went in to sample the Guinness. The barman grabbed a glass,squirted a perfectly acceptable looking pint into it in about 10 seconds,slapped it on the bar and said "That'll be the best you ever tasted!" My reply was "If you'd served it that way in my village you'd've been hung!" The black nectar should take 7 1/2 minutes to pour,in several stages,with settlement time between each,hence the oft asked question after asking for a pint,"Would you like a wee dram while you wait?" In England drinkers weren't prepared to wait,so Guinness developed a quick pouring pump,and slightly altered recipe to allow for this. The pint in question was actually all right,although not "The best" and I drank many more there over the next year or so!
    My worst ever pint of Guinness was also in Dover,when I went into 'The Roman Quay',asked for Guinness,and on lifting the pint could smell vinegar. Took a sip,and informed the barman it was dodgy,so he poured another,same result! He protested "But that couple over there have been supping it all day!" They were f.ckin' French,on a day trip,and as such would drink your piss probably! Never entered that establishment again in the 5 yrs or so we spent there!

    When i had the pub, i had a couple of paddy customers, they said the Guinness was fine. I didn't clean the pipes every week as recommended and they always said it was good. After a few months, about 6, my bottle went and i thought i better clean them. They said the Guinness was very different and not as good. If it ain't broke...

    I don't like that very much, caught a fukker in a pub flogging it as Guinness.

    The best pint of Guinness I have ever tasted was in County Cavan in 88 on a fishing week,the barman would pour us two pints each as the first would not touch the sides as it was like treacle.
