    Adnams is a local Suffolk brewery - you can get their beers in the major supermarkets locally, not sure how far they stock them, though? Been my favourite beer for about a year now.
    I think I've seen Ghost Ship in the local Majestic Wines. Never tried it though..

    Sounds good, mate. The beer, and the above. Like the idea of a summer house system... Is it listed somewhere on the forum? I think we're in the minority these days, who actually get on with our wives, enjoy their company and have a meaningful relationship

    Yeah, the American and Oz Pale Ales were fab - will be ordering more!

    Not using the same laptop, but still the same kit. The Aura and Kef's still gel together fantastically.

    To be fair, it was probably only because I was on the Ghost Ship and she was on the Rose! Joking aside, it was lovely - kids were at Mother In Laws, we both finished work on time so had a lovely couple of hours in the sun chilling, listening to some summer tunes and chatting. What life's all about.

    Then the kids came home, created merry hell, I had to take daughter to her piano lesson and now doing the BBQ in the twilight! Still living the dream, though!

    Good stuff, mate. I'm sure it hits the spot

    Ain't that the truth! Those are the memories you look back on with fondness in later years... So make plenty of them, and don't lose focus on what *really* matters... Gettin' all deep now

    Then the kids came home, created merry hell, I had to take daughter to her piano lesson and now doing the BBQ in the twilight! Still living the dream, though!
    Ha - back to reality!!

    So, let me get this straight. You’ve accused us cocktail aficionados of being ‘poncy’, and then posted a picture of a bottle of rose?!!

    Ha - remember I drink cocktails too, just not coffee-based ones! And rosé is perfect for drinking just now in this warm weather, especially with BBQs and salads, so na-na, na-na-na

    Going round visiting a friends shortly, and I have a feeling that his wife, who would happily watch back to back episodes of 'Curse of Oak Island', will want to watch the Eurovision Thong Contest. Can you aficionados recommend a nice beer that is strong enough to make this tolerable?

    Haven't posted here for a while, but here are some slurps that we have enjoyed recently:

    2007 Château des Graves – Graves

    Merlot and Merlot Blanc 12.5% ABV, c. £16 a bottle


    2002 Château Malescasse – Haut Médoc

    Merlot, Petit verdot, Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc
    13% ABV, c. £19 a bottle


    2010 Château Péricou – Bordeaux

    Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot
    14.5% ABV
    Very much enjoyed this. Good job I have a second bottle – in fact I’m tempted to buy a case. c. £14 a bottle


    2010 Château Bonneau – Haut Médoc

    30% Cabernet sauvignon, 65% Merlot, 5% Petit verdot
    13.5% ABV c. £14 a bottle



    So not quite the Bordeaux ‘tart’ you would think me Marco.

    Yeah, but it's all French!

    Anyway, I've just acquired a bottle of this. Wondering if it'll have a somewhat 'cheesy' finish....
