So, Max is back on the ESB. It should be 5.5% cask and 5.9% in the bottle.
You can’t go hammering these percentages. ‘One over the eight’ was the saying in the 1920s when small beer and mild were the order of the day. If you neck six of these bottles you’ll be under the table and not fit to operate heavy machinery.
Sometimes, it’s best to let the camera take the strain. I have my annual school reunion next weekend and I have no doubt that this is how the world will look through my lenses!
