Indeed I'd forgot about the spoons cider festival. It's like Christmas, but for summer.

Yeah I think everyone I have spoken to about it agrees it's a 3 fist ale. Not bad but not brilliant either. It reminds me of Vaux Double Maxim which I used to drink quite often till the brewery closed.

I have a bottle of Celt Native Storm for tonight. The bottle says flavours biscuit, tangerine and spice. Sounds interesting.

Went on a tour of Hawkshead Brewery over the weekend. Pretty solid brewery, Red is nice, and Brodies Prime is pretty nice, though I'm not keen on the bitter after-taste. It's like a hoppy finish on which is essentially a porter.

But the Beer hall is lovely. Had some 'tapas' which was really nice, and finally got round to trying Ardbeg 10YO whisky, which was the nicest thing I've drunk all weekend, and definitely something I'll be looking to pick up in the coming months.

I also had whilst there;

Innis and Gunn's Toasted Oak IPA which was quite nice for a pale, but definitely my least favourite from them, who are usually really solid (at least across the other 5 of theirs I've managed to get my hands on.

Isle of Skye Black Cuillin, a very dark ale with roasted oats and honey. This was very pleasant, and just the right amount of sweetness from the honey in the aftertaste.

Also picked up a bottle of Einstök Icelandic Toasted Porter. Not drunk it yet, but I've had it before and seemed to remember it being lovely.

And a bottle of local looking mead which I'm looking forwards to too.

Saw some Icelandic ale yesterday at Majestic Wines Warehouse but had already bought loads of Anchor Steam Beer and Brooklyn Lager so will try it next time.

Working in the Isle Of Man at present and had a few pints of Okell's Bitter whilst I have been out there. Nice and rusty colour to it with some decent fruit notes and a nice smooth malty finish. 4 fists.

Tonight have had a West Indies Porter by Guinness which was superb and now having a Xingu Black Beer which is like lager only more stouty, very light with little aftertaste.

Just been to Wetherspoons and their ale festival is still on. I had a pint of Elysian Night Owl pumpkin beer. It was really nice, bitter sweet and really spicy and had a really nice rich liquorice finish. A definite 5 fists from me. Bummer that it finishes tomorrow.

Allowing Myself a bottle of the craft ale stuff I bought in York today (and the rest is being saved for Christmas).

It's 01/11 from the Brew By Numbers brewery based in London. It's a Quince flavoured Saison 5.2%. Its very tart and refreshing but very belgian white beer tasting. Hazy as you like. Not bad. 4 fists.

Since finding the specialist beer shops where I live I have been finding some great beers and one of my favourites currently is Pauwel Kwak (which translated means "fat Paul" - snigger). It is a Belgian beer and has a great taste of vanilla, banana and liquorice as well as the unique drinking arm (which I purchased yesterday). The glass shape is a result of the Tavern (run by fat Paul) dating back to the late 1700s when mail carriages stopped at the tavern 3 times a day but the drivers where not permitted to leave their carriage so need a glass that would fit in the stirrup, hence the oval base. After horse and carriage travel died out the beer was resurrected and to keep tradition they retained the glass but devised the drinking arm for it as it cannot stand on it's own. It's a 5 fist beer.
