On a small east London crawl today. Kernel has the new Centennial Amarillo Nelson Sauvin available. Partizanís mild is now available for purchase at the brewery. Itís very tasty. They also have 3 versions if the Saison Grisette for sale, though Andy was quite coy about the differences between them. Apparently Partizan will be doing a meet the brewer at craft in a couple of weeks. The date isnít set in stone yet.

Dukeís has Bloody íEll available on draft. Itís OK.

The Fox has the new Alpha State Centennial on alongside a few new Arbors. Brick Lane Lager features in the fridges (new for me!).

Yeah, the Partizan Grisettes are a tricky issue. I spoke to Andy about them and they certainly seem to be different beers: thereís an orange & lemon one and then a pepper & ginger one. I havenít tried them yet but I would think the recipe differences would mandate different entries; however, since the only differences in labeling are the artwork (including label color) and ABV (not the beer name), itís not especially explicit whatís what. Damn these Bermondsey brewers and their unclear labeling practices!

Yessir. I think the purple-ish label has an orange or lemon in the illustration and thatís the citrus grisette. I think the grey one is pepper and ginger.

donít think they can necessarily be split, lots of beers change recipe over time, but if name stays the same and ABV doesnít vary by more than 10% then its the same listing

Citrus vs Pepper & Ginger seems a pretty significant recipe difference to me. And weíre not talking about the never-ending evolutionary tweaks to a single beer but several beers released at the same time. So I think there is also a clear brewer intention that they are different beers. But, if we canít be sure that people will be able to know which one they have rated we are left with no choice in the matter.

I think part of it is a never-ending tweak. Andy is looking to get a flavor in his grisette and so he keeps trying stuff.
