    I miss Manny's so I found a recipe to clone it.


    Might do it during my week break from school, actually.

    Old Speckled Hen always makes a bit nervous. After all, most beer bottles are opaque because light can damage the beer...

    I love this stuff, silly though it sounds:



    Also, Cheapyspoon's current Real Ale festival has the following hits in its range:

    Tonight I am enjoying a pint of St. Peter's Organic English Ale. I don't really care about the organic part, although I'm sure it adds to the markup. It's the perfect balance of malt and hops that won me over. Everything from the St. Peter's Brewery that I've tried has been outstanding.

    Truth be told, I'm a sucker for English ales.

    The STpeter's stuff is all good to me too.

    Had a Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn breweries yesterday ,Very nice. And a Cherry fruit beer from Samuel Smiths Tadcaster also sound.

    My favourite beers, in no particular order are:-

    Sam Smiths Pale Ale (it has a good flavour, and it's also nostalgic for me. It was my favourite beer in one of the pubs where I did a lot of my teenage drinking back where I grew up)



    Woodeford's Norfolk Wherry, brewed at home with a little extra sugar to boost the strength to around 5.5-6%. It's got quite a pale colour if you're careful with the siphoning for the secondary fermentation.



    Oranjeboom is a dutch lager with real flavour. I first discovered it on tap in a small hippy-run ancient pub in the small country town where I live.



    Wychwood breweries is my local independent brewer. They're still in the old brewery building just behind the main street of pubs in the old market town where I live. Some mornings of the week, the whole town centre has a slightly sickly-sweet smell of cooking malt.



    Everything they make which I've tried, I've enjoyed.
    Here are the two favourites:-

    Hobgoblin Dark Ale



    And their Green Goblin cider. It has a crisper, sharper taste than most other premium ciders I've tried. Definite green apples with a hint of oak. Pretty strong alcohol content, but not crazy.

    I was home on leave for the Kentucky Derby last weekend, so I made sure to drink regularly at the Bluegrass Brewing Company. I never get tired of their Bourbon Barrel Stout. Unless I drink more than one or two in a night, because it's a fairly strong beer. Speaking of stouts, Sam Smith's Imperial Stout is always a pleasure to drink.

    It's getting to be summertime here though, and because of that, I tend to gravitate to less alcoholic beer. Victory Prima Pils (or any other regional Pilsener I can get my hands on), the local Kolsch and amber ale (which is something of a hidden gem) at my brewpub, Schwarzbier if I can find it, etc.

    Cullion, you live by the Wychwood brewery? You lucky SOB. Hobgoblin ale is another one of my favorites. I also love everything by Sammy Smiths.
