We’re spending a couple of days in the New Forest. At the risk of sounding a bit Fotherington-Thomas, I have to say that it’s a wondrous and magical place.

The 34 More Beers Project: Krombacher Weizen
The Babelas bar on Queens Road always has a wheat beer available on draught. Until recently, it served the egregious Erdinger Weissbier but on my visit there last night I saw that this had been replaced by Krombacher Weizen. I’m delighted to report that the Krombacher beer is vastly superior to Erdinger. It is deliciously tangy and has none of Erdinger’s sickly sweetness. Its citrus and banana notes are in perfect balance. The only thing that spoiled it for me was BeerLeg's asinine insistence on 'photo-bombing' my pictorial record of the drink with his fingers.
21 beers left.

The summer was good while it lasted. It’s been crap for the last week or so and it’s clearly not going to get any better. These temperatures are an absolute disgrace.

BTR high visibility waterproof bicycle helmet cover
If anyone is wondering what gift they could buy BeerLegKing for his fast-approaching 50th birthday, I would suggest this helmet cover that will both keep the rain off his head and ensure that he is clearly visible to other road users. It will also make him look even more of a twat than he already does in his (non-lycra) cycling gear. Sadly, the helmet cover costs £6.99 so it’s well out of my price range.

BeerLegKing - an apology
In a previous post, I stated that BeerLegKing always turns up for the Ride Leicester event 'looking like a twat in his lycra gimp suit'. He denied wearing lycra so I decided to look for evidence. I found this photo of him at last year’s event and it turns out that he’s wearing shorts, a pointless hi-viz vest and a foam hat but he’s not actually wearing any lycra. I am genuinely sorry for my mistake and I’m sure he’ll be gracious enough to accept my apology.
I still think he looks like a twat, though.
