Beer: Red Nose Edition

As all in Blighty would know today is the Red Nose day...

First and foremost, have you given anything yet? If not, you are barred from reading further until you do. If you're not in Britain, go find a local charity. Today is a day for giving. And for beer, of course. What would Friday, and especially Friday lunchtime be without a good pint? So, hopefully you're not just giving, but also (par)taking. Preferably of a good real ale. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any breweries doing a special Red Nose ale - and no, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer does not count. Therefore I am left with a reasonably difficult, and much more pleasurable task of coming up with an idea for a good substitute. The problem is, as I'm writing this I am very much in the mood for a good porter, and that somehow does not fit the Red Nose day sentiment. It is just too old fashioned and serious. Therefore, I will open this up to you dear reader (or readers if there is more than one of you out there).

So, come one, add your suggestions for Red Nose day ale.
