Plum Pudding Arrives!

I walked up to my local last night, where top form Lees Bitter was enjoyed. I was informed that Lees Plum Pudding is in the cellar and will be ready by Sunday. It is probably the best of Lees Seasonal Ales. I'll let you know all about it. Michelle also gifted me a bottle of the just released 11.5% Lees Harvest Ale 2007, so beloved of our American friends. I have most of them going back to the beginning, but I am unlikely to drink it or them in the near future.

Today I'm meeting my oldest friend Mike in Manchester. I have known him since day number one in England and he is a real ale man. We'll eschew our normal Northern Quarter haunts and see what we can find elsewhere. The scene around the Universities is meant to be picking up. We'll see.

Plum pudding? You must be joking. It sounds terrible, Pedro.

And if you're not going to drink the damn Harvest Ale, you could at least have the decency to ship it over here. What a waste!

Definitely Lees best seasonal by far and even prefered to the Bitter by non-Lees drinkers!
