While Max regrets missing out on the Shandy Bass in his youth, he will also now be missing a regular pleasure down at the Royal in Cheltenham. It’s one of those nice little ides that make you think you’re getting a treat, a bonus, a special opportunity. Like the Tank in Gloucester docks, they have started to offer a flight of thirds. So I worked my way through (right to left) Mister Chubb’s, Rare Breed and Fortitude. All excellent session beers; what’s more they were beautifully clear — couldn’t believe my eyes!
