As you probably know my hobby is beer, so how about just once a week we post about a beer we have had during the week (good, bad or indifferent beer or lager), not a your favourite beers but as I said, one you have had during the week.

Let me make a start, this week I have had a bottle of

Thwaites, Golden Wünder, England

It is supposed to be an Oktoberfest beer, 4.6% very pale yellow with a very thin head, slight sweet hop aroma, rather watery initial taste but with a bit of a citrus aftertaste. I found it to be very ordinary but not a bad beer.

I'd like to take part Ralph but the only bottled beers I can drink are naturally conditioned ones. Any artificially carbonated drink (soft or alcoholic) gives me stomach pains. I think there are more hens' teeth on Tees-side than naturally conditioned beers :Sad:

Abbot Ale

Abbot Ale - Perfect Real Ale

A fine brew, which not only goes back 1000 years in itself, but it has also been suggested (I do not know the evidence) that this ale is the closes recipe to what was believed to have been drunk 2000 years back.

On another note, back in 1982 I was a paramedic, and having sat for 90 minutes on the Hogs Back near Guildford on area cover, we returned to base in Godalming via the old A3 and the junction with Compton. As we came close to the junction where we would turn right off the A3, there before us was a very large canvas sided lorry, on its side, having turned over. It was a Newquay Steam Brew Beer Lorry, and the entire load was strewn across the road. 100's of bottles and amazingly the majority were not broken, laying on the road. We were quickly joined by the fire brigade, who started to clear the area up, as we took the driver to Hospital with luckily for him only a broken nose.

Less than 90 minutes after leaving the scene to go to the Hospital we went back past the place to go back to base........................

7 fire appliances, and LOTS of smiling firemen, and not one single bottle of Newquay Steam Brew Beer left on the road for anyone to see.

Probably the fastest clear up by the fire brigade ever.:winky:

Not just bottled beers, there are plenty of draught and bottle conditioned beers available, even around here on Teesside.

John Smiths smooth served by a smiling bar maid. Nice frothy head (the beer) that clung to the inside of the glass till the last drop.

A nice long, cold pint of Leffe Blonde, on draft of course. Our local won't sell pints, so I have two halves in a pint glass!! Followed by a pint of Hobsons, a pint of Abbot and another leffe. MMMMM lovely. The foods good too. :thumb:

I will get back to you soon Graham

Thanks Ralph.

I go out with my mate once a week. At his local there is a choice of Tetley Imperial and John Smith's Smooth (neither of which I particularly like). My local has real Banks's Original but it's quality is variable and it's a bit too malty and under hopped for my taste.

Otherwise I drink cans of Boddingtons Draught because it uses nitrogen rather than carbon dioxide to give a head but I'd prefer to drink a similar strength, nice and hoppy, real beer :Smile:

We had a few days in Peterborough about 15/16 months ago and there happened to be a farmers market on where Tunnel Brewery had some of their beers for sale. I can certainly recommend the varieties they have around 3.8% to 4.2% :Smile:

I'm just having a drink of GOLIATH by Wychwood Brewery 4.2%, 99p from Home bargains, a very nice drink.

It states on the bottle A refreshing classic ruby bitter brewed to deliver a robust palate of rich satisfying malty flavours balanced with a moreish thirst quenching bitternes from styrian golding hops.

Very nice, Hic!

John.

As I said its not about favourite beers, its about a beer you had this week and wanted to tell us about it.

if it aint one of my favorites i dont drink it....end of !!!!

cant see the point in paying £3 or £4 for a beer thats brewed in a rain butt with twigs and baler twine in it only to find it tastes like horse pee and i wasted my money....been there, done it, once!!!!!

chemical beers, consistant beers, way to go hardhat
