    This week it's Northcote Jiggle Juice, enjoyed at the Euston Tap

    I'm on record, probably on these pages , of not liking Nelson's beers. I hereby take that back, at least in the case of Loose Canon, served on gravity at Biddenden Vineyards "Taste of the best of Produced in Kent". A fine dark amber best bitter, conventionally hopped, with fruity depths. An unfashionable style perhaps, but very welcome. My BOTW Nelson's Loose Cannon.

    A very good week for beer but top marks to Acorn Sorachi Ace.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    A very good week for beer, with a bit of a backlash against the previous seven days abstinence. Tried this week:

    Trentside - Grey Lady.
    Blue Monkey - BG Sips.
    Daleside - White Bier.
    Fernandes - Centennial.
    Breconshire - Mayor's Inspiration.
    Westgate - Ale Fresco.
    Dr Morton's - Rabbit Punch.
    Great Heck - Equinox.
    Ossett - Citra.
    Ossett- Silver King.
    Fulstow - Marsh MILD.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel MILD.
    Atomic - Half Life.
    Fernandes - Perle.
    Wensleydale - Black Dub.
    Ossett - White Rose Wheat.
    Rudgate - Jorvik Blonde.
    Clarks - Rams Revenge.
    Riverhead - Yellowhammer.
    Bridestones - Dark Mild.
    Five Towns - Niamh's Nemesis.
    Great Heck - Achtung! Hefeweizen.

    Beer name of the week undoubtedly goes to the 'Achtung' and very good it was too, very laid back in the style of a German Wheat beer. Very close between the Citra, Black Dub, the ever reliable Malt Shovel Mild, but Blue Monkey BG Sips just shades it.

    Interesting (and most expensive) beer of the week has to be Great Divide Hercules Double IPA which was on at the Rake on Bank Holiday Monday. It's 10% abv and clocks up 85 IBU, although I didn't find it overwhelmingly bitter - in fact it seemed quite well balanced with some good malt sweetness and plenty of piney/citrus hop aroma and taste. However, it wasn't very easy drinking and I wouldn't have wanted much more than the third pint I tried and not just because it cost over £8 for a pint.

    Slater's Top Totty, Windsor and Eton Knight of the Garter and Dark Star M&M Porter were all in the running for BOTW, but a late pint of Fuller's Ascot Tercentenary Ale last night managed to pip the rest. I thought it was a very good, fruity number, ideal for a summer's day, which was rather galling given that I'd only popped into the pub to avoid the pouring rain outside.

    Encoutered in the Barrowboy & *anker earlier this evening - not a bad pint at all (but I should think so at £3.90!)...

    Another pretty quiet week on the beer front - just 10 different pints and 6 I have had before. I almost thought about playing my St Austell Tribute trump card but I will go for the Gales Spring Sprinter at the Stonemasons Arms in Hammersmith, a decent enough and refreshing pint (as Spring beers should be) and better quality than the pint of it I had in Bromley a few weeks ago and at £3.70 a pint it bloody well should be!

    Spingo Easter Special 7.6% BOTW and overides any other entry I may have made for this week. Blue Anchor beers get better every time I go. Clear as a bell and superb.

    Sorry this should be in next weeks as I had it testerday, if you know what I mean.
