I see red, I see red, I see red: Hunt for the Red October

Written by
I see red, I see red, I see red: Hunt for the Red October It is fair to say that I have a complicated relationship with the colour red – not least because, as an extremely colour blind gentleman, I often mix it up with green and brown.

It was a boon for us then, when the importer got a surprise keg of actual Brewmasters Edition Gulden Draak in a…
