Fullers ESB on draught

After being let loose in the candy, I mean beer, store I retired to the Courtney Arms while I waited for SWMBO to finish work. To my surprise Fullers ESB had appeared on the bar, and then to my astonishment after ordering I was charged a measly $5 (2 pounds) as some launch special. It was tasting fantastic, and despite being the keg version it was a good temperature with a gentle carbonation. Despite getting some flak for the state of their lines from some quarters the beer at the Courtney Arms has been tasting very good recently.

Had a bottle of ESB the other night and whilst it's not as good as the 'real thing' it's still a mighty fine drop of beer!

Great post, I really enjoyed it. I will have to book mark this site for later.

This Dondon mob seem to be going the rounds of bloggers. I'm ignoring them.

As for ESB, I'm in London this weekend and might try a half. I'm sceptical about it frankly.

Yes, the Dondon mob visited me too. I ignored and deleted the comment.

I don't think I've ever tried keg ESB. I quite like the draught version but it doesn't blow me away. Which isn't to say that I don't wish I was in Wellington at the moment!

Sorry Dondon, smells like spam to me.
