12 Beers of Christmas - Day 10

Is it only Day 10??? Surely the #12beersofxmas must be over......
No? Oh, ok then, next up is a 10.2% Imperial Red Ale from Mission Brewery (they of the very big cans) called Carrack. A carrack was a three or four masted sailing ship developed in the 15th century by the Genoese for use in commerce. There you go, some non Doctor Who related information! Enjoy, it might not happen again!

Been watching the darts. Go RVB! 
Back to the beer.......
Doesn't hit you too hard, in fact quite a subtle  Imp Red Ale. Has an IPA nose, it warns you, ignore if you dare. But, do you know what? Watch the darts, sip the beer, embrace the excitement.

Today's figurine is from the 2007 Christmas Day episode starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor and Kylie Minogue as a rather short lived companion - Astrid. The Host (as depicted above) were robots designed to assist travellers on board the Titanic, which was on a voyage around various planets, with a scheduled stop at Sol 3 (Earth). The very brief visit to earth by the Doctor and Astrid introduced us to Wilfred Mott played by the much loved Bernard Cribbins, himself making a return to the Doctor Who universe having appeared in the very first Doctor Who movie in the 60s.
