Miltov Lamprey's just discovered his new favourite ale in a spa town in Yorkshire. He just doesn't know how he got there.

Woke up in Harrogate the other day.

No idea how.

So bought a pint of Golden Pippin (3.9%) from the Copper Dragon Brewery in Skipton.

Quite possibly the best pint I've ever tasted.

According to the brewery's website, this "light refreshing blond ale" with "a citrus fruit flavour" was "originally a seasonal ale" but "it proved so popular it's now brewed all year round".

No wonder.

It's f--king mint.

Ditto the Rooster's Rude Boy (4.3%), with its ode to 2 Tone pump clip, in the Old Bell.

Had eight of each.

Lost a trouser in a bush.

Dr Miltov Lamprey
reckons he was a "successful" surgeon specialising in "whatever they wheeled in really" at "whatever bloody butcher's shop would have me" for 16 years. He was "unfairly" struck off after an incident he'd rather not discuss involving "one too many hand-steadiers, a Kelly clamp and a cricket bat". He now lives in a layby near Polgooth. Anything attributed to him on this website should NOT be considered or mistaken for professional medical advice. It's NOT.
