Hmm Skull Attack Gold. Sounds delightful.

It's not like proper SA though, thank god.

Although drinking SA in Splott Park as a schoolboy made me the man I am today.

That stuff is pretty nice. I have to ignore it's Welshness.

Try to think of it as Cardiffian rather than Welsh.

Sainsburys have one of their Duchy Originals ale in their 3 for £4 deal. Well worth picking up, in fact I would go as far as to say it is one of the nicest bottled ales I have tasted. It certainly went perfectly with Saturday's barbecue.

Looks like this:

I thought Duchy Originals was Prince Charles's company, not Sainsbury's?

I was surprised the other night by Tesco's finest bottle conditioned ale. It wasn't the most characterful (is that a word?) of beers, but was smooth and quaffable.

I tried a 'Hickory Switch', by Fallen Angel brewery. It was... interesting. Like drinking electricity! I can't describe it properly without spoiling it for people, but it's very dark and very sharp. I can't decide whether I like it, but I'd definitely recommend everyone should try it.

I also had a pint of Everard's Tiger yesterday, the first I've had since leaving Leicester, and I have to say, my adoptive hometown's done itself proud. Tiger's delicious.

Oh, and I'm with the anti-Stella crowd. Bastion really needs some proper educatin' if he thinks Stella's even drinkable.

Does anyone know where in London you can buy bottles of Doombar?

ASDA often have it, but I know I've gotten it recently in the beer shop in Borough Market.

If you're after Cornish ale, they do Tribute in ASDA 3 for £4 - that's lovely that stuff.

I'm about to start an Old Speckled Hen.

I've never had one before because it's always seemed a bit 'commercial'. A bit big business, and I like the idea of ale being brewed in bearded mens' garages (Everards is allowed to use big commercial machinery because it was my local brewery for years).

I'm also prejudiced against it because of the advert things on Dave, but I'll give it a go.

Leffe and Duvel are my beers of choice at the moment.

They are wonderful, yes. Particularly the Leffe Brun.

After ordering a proper Belgian beer with my meal in a Pizza Hut in Brussels, I've really been turned on to Belgian beers. The decent ones are so damn flavourful full. Just a shame they aren't as cheap as they are in Belgium...

Tried Tyskie last Friday incidentally. Horrible sharp, artificial taste. Worse than Stella.
