17:15 Went to see the Landlady's new hairstyle. A No.3 cut all over. It looked far better than we expected.

19:45 Charity evening during which Sam the Landlady was to have her hair shaved off. We watched the preparation but left before the act was carried out.

Grain - Redwood4.80Good
Lacons - Jack Valentine4.20GoodBit sweet for me. The beer is named after a folklore character that is apparently unique to Norfolk.
Grain - Best Bitter4.20AcceptableVery sweet. Neither Steve the cellarman or I thought it was as it should be.

Taylor's Attleborough - 4.14.10GoodUnnamed new beer. Dark with a touch of bitterness.
Taylor's Attleborough - Dark Vanilla4.30GoodI do not like vanilla in beer and baulked at the thought of it. However, I was reminded that as B.L.O. I was duty bound to try it. Very subtle flavour. I enjoyed it.

12:15 Busy. The pub had been very busy on Christmas Eve and the beer choice was, in consequence, much reduced.
