I don't like to start the New Year on a negative note, but it is the blogger's lot to speak as you find.
Now as I am fairly well known in a lot of Lees houses (though not to the manager in this case), I dislike such situations. Someone is bound to say "I see the local CAMRA Bod is in complaining about the beer." So I reluctantly accepted the pint, which wasn't great, but not bad. My second pint was terrific though; sparkling, clean and delicious. Night and day. I knew then I had been "had". Serves me right. I had my doubts and should have stood my ground, but for mixed, or maybe mixed up, reasons I didn't. But I don't like being served beer that on the evidence available to me, was known by the manager to be less than optimal. Cask beer should never be served where there is a doubt as to quality.
It won't be that way next time when I have my doubts. My first New Year's Resolution!
Happy New Year to all my readers. Have a great 2013.
