Summer’s officially here, apparently. Though you wouldn’t know it. This week here in the Poitou-Charentes we’ve had downpours, thunderstorms and hailstones heavy enough to punch holes in plastic guttering. More English weather than what we’d expect in France.
appropriate then that this week’s pint is an English Pale Ale from Marston’s, described as "refreshing, lighter blonde ale with subtle citrus flavours and a delicate bitter aftertaste."
