It was only after I got them home that I realised the horrible truth: they were both brewed by Shepherd Neame who seem to stalk my every move in beer reviews! Not that I'm complaining, they do appear to be one of my favourite brewers, but it is slightly annoying the way that they turn up without me even looking for them!

And so, tonight, I am reviewing Artesian Dark Ale and Artesian Light Ale - why not - and thus face you with two paths. One will lead back to sanity and normalcy as you click on the address bar and type in a new place to visit, the other, the dangerous path, is to click below and read more. So, what is your choice fair traveller?
This is a good brace of ale, with some lovely little surprises. I am pleased that I got them in for the Christmas season and pleased to have tried them. At the price they are in the evil empire that they reside I will definitely be seeking to try them again, they are sessionable and I can afford to session them. Of the two, I think I prefer the dark ale because, well, it's dark and thus more interesting. Certainly the time of year plays a huge role in my decision and I shall be getting more in for the season, with the light ale playing second fiddle until, like I say, I get it in for Easter.
