The London Hatter (JD Wetherspoon) in Luton

This is a fairly new (Summer 2011) JDW set at the bottom of a bland office block or some similar thing. Apparently it was once a nightclub, so given that they haven't done too bad a job with it. It was relatively quiet on my Thursday afternoon visit.
There are only eight hand pumps which for a place this size is a bit on the low side. At least they were all in use without any doubling up. On offer were the two GK beers, Doom Bore a cider, Lymestone Stone Cutter, Tring Ramscoat, JW Lees Victory, and Celt Experience Dark Age. I went for the Lees Victory (£1.99) which was on the cold side even for me but fine apart from that. It's GBG 2015 listed.

Marneys Village Inn in Esher
Located close to Esher train station(Sandown racecourse).The bar area is quite small but plenty of seating outdoors if the weather is fine. 3 real ales served. A pleasant location in the summer.

By 1950 the tied house system as we know it had been around for 60 years or so. But it wasn’t without its critics. As I’ve already mentioned, it was the indirect result of government interference in the licensed trade. A shortage of potential outlets for brewers was created by making ....

[QUOTE=Aqualung;73221]A very poor week for me with a visit to Gravesend on Friday, I expect better things next week :- Dark Star Hophead 3.8% Celt Experience Dark Age 4.0% Bexley Bob 4.2% Marston's South Pacific Red 4.2% Ilkley Olicana Pale 4.4% Caledonian Nogne O Asian Pale Ale 4.5% Moorhouse Farm House 4.6% Kent Enigma 5.5% Gadd's Faithful Dogbolter Porter 5.6% Kent Rum Enigma 7.5%? The winner is the Kent Rum Enigma, a rum barrel aged Black IPA which was £3.50 in the Crown & Thistle in Gravesend. They had marked the clip as 7.5% but I don't see how that can be. The woman behind the bar said they had poured bottles of rum into it but if that was the case surely it would be in a different duty class? I was surprised not to be able to find ANY reference to this beer online. Honourable mention must go to the Gadd's Dogbolter which tasted just as I remember it from the Firkin pub chain days, mostly in the Pheasant & Firkin in Goswell Road. BOTW Kent Rum Enigma[/QUOTE] If it was barrel aged in a rum barrel it would pick up the rum flavour and sometimes it would increase the strength of the brew.Sometimes the brewery increase the strength of the beer they put in the barrel as it keeps better when stored for a long time.They( as far as I am aware) are not allowed at the brewery to add bottles of rum.The landlord can if he wants so maybe you got a bargain
