Lancashire-based brewer Thwaites has given one of its popular guest ales a regal makeover to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee. Fine Rain, a popular ale from Thwaites’ 2012 quarterly favourites range has undergone an opportunistic overhaul as ‘Fine Reign’ to mark the occasion. Golden in colour the 4.1% ABV ale offers drinkers a light, zesty and malty flavour with a marmalade fruity finish. Fine Reign, available in Thwaites pubs and through its independent free trade network throughout June, also has a limited edition pump clip displaying the crown jewels. Lee Williams, marketing manager of Thwaites said: “This is a popular ale and already has some loyal fans, so we’re hoping it will now gain some royal ones too.

Nuffield (4080) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Dark yellow color. Moderately watery. Plain profile, bready, lightly caramel, generic bitter. Hangs on the palate a bit. Nothing bad but not good either. (cask, Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford, June 2012)

dynamiteninja (1825) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2012
Cask. The Old White Swan (Nicholson’s), York. Thin white head. Gold body. Citrus, floral. Bitter. Dry finish. Like a really good golden ale that’s been watered down.
