    The Phoenix Black Shadow is actually a 'frestival' beer OB, did you find it somewhere else.

    A few decent 'Spoons beers this week (and some awful ones). The Peach Melbear would win most weeks and the new recipe Butcomb Blonde was pretty decent (as was the old recipe from memory)but the outstanding beer for me was the Budelse Capucijn at the Elms in Leigh on Sea. For a 6%'er I found it an easy drink and it hardly touched the sides. Will probably end up as my 'Spoons Fest Favourite at this rate.

    Yes in a pub 10 minutes walk from my house, it's a half hour bus ride to the nearest 'spoons (plus the cost of two pints, or 3 in a JDW, for the bus fare). Maybe I should suggest that nearby empty furniture shop to JDW using the handy form on another thread.

    Despite late challenges from Arbor's Old Knobbley and Tring's Jack O'Legs, the final drink-off came down to Jarrow's Old Cornelius vs Titanic's Stout.

    BOTW = Titanic Stout.

    Lots of great beer this week. Honourable mentions to the Herord Black Chalice at the JDW fest, Skinners Cornish Knocker and Ringwood Fortyniner both at the Bull's Head festival (Croydon) and Surrey Hills Shere Drop.

    But BOTW goes to Twickenham Spring Ale, the perfect pint after a long walk along the Thames in the sun this weekend.

    Weird pint of the week goes to Stonehenge Sign of Spring - a bright green beer reminiscent in appearance of one of those toxic alcopops, but actually very drinkable. I have no idea why they made it green - I thought it might be a left-over from St Patrick's Day, but apparently not.

    The barman insisted I try it first because so many people had complained once they'd seen the colour!
