After the fun and shenanigans of another great Smugglers Night in Rottingdean some sustenance was called for, so we adjourned to our regular watering hole The Rottingdean Club. Normally three ales are on offer – two regulars – Harveys Best Bitter & Greene King Abbott and a guest ale. This week it was the turn of Fireside, again from Greene King. A tad darker than a traditional bitter, full bodied at 4.5% but not too heavy if you fancy a few. And indeed you might because it was delicious. I wasn’t initially won over so had to have a second and third just to make sure……. Malty and shares some similarities with the Rev. James but perhaps more subtle.
