Sparkler wars II - Is this the way to Amarill-O?


Again, I start a blogpost referencing BGBW Beer Writer of the Year 2009 Pete Brown.

You have to pity the fellow; he goes all the way to south Wales to get hold of some Otley Amarill-O for his latest video post and - lo-and-behold - the very same turns up in his Stoke Newington local, the Jolly Butchers (see picture).

I thought it a very impressive and refreshing brew, well balanced with the malt and very drinkable. It struck me as exactly the level of interesting beer you'd want a few of while watching the Six Nations with pals.

Of course, the real reason for my posting this picture is to offer further evidence in the sparkler wars, with Tandleman very cheekily claiming game, set and match by offering two pictures - one of two pint glasses filled with foam and the other with unsparkled beer that looked badly conditioned or past its best...

...this perfect pint was, of course, unsparkled.

Though I know from reading his excellent blog that Tandie was joshing a little; he may prefer sparkled beer, but he'd be the first to concede that condition is all. As he knows all too well, so often doon sooth, a sparkler is used to 'give life' to badly conditioned beer. Which is just about the worst thing you can do.
