    That Was That Then


    So Christmas and New Year are well and truly over; I was back at work yesterday and now need to resurrect the blog.

    So how was it for you? I had the lurgy, and together with sleep deprived nights, my time wasn't as good as I'd have hoped. I didn't intend on getting drunk each day, but I certainly intended to drink more beer than I managed. I should have known something was wrong when two new beers I tried: BrewDog Hardcore IPA and Nice Chouffe. although good did not live up to expectations. However it was proven to me that my palate wasn't all it should be when old favourites Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and BrewDog Punk IPA didn't taste as excellent as ever.

    Thankfully things were a bit better by new year, and my beer choices Mikkeller All Others Pale, and Fullers Vintage Ale 2006 were both great beers.

    I hope you all had a great festive season and imbibed sensibly. I'm looking forward to trying plenty of new stuff this year, but also revisiting more old favourites. I must spend more time in the pub too.

    My celebrations are still going. I've got 10 gallons of real ale that will be gone in a few hours. 2009 promises to be quite a challenge for Master of Ale.

    I'm still hammering my Twelve Beers of Christmas. 27 pints of Thornbridge kept getting in the way.
