You can check your loyalty points total at any time by logging into your account.Each point is worth 1p. Once you have 500 points (worth £5) or more you can trade them for a discount code. You'll see a "Customer Loyalty Points"
section towards the bottom of the confirmation page during the checkout process.
If you wish to use your points, just click on the link to generate a discount code. You don't use the points everytime you make a purchase, you can build them up. The more you have, the bigger the discount you'll get!

CHIMAY - Blanche Tripel

Chimay Blanche Tripel is well known for its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast.The beer's flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma.The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth.This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

* Special Offer * 24x 330ml Bottles On Offer : Was £50.59 - Now £47.10 from The Drink Shop

Producer: Chimay

ABV: 8%

Country of Origin: Belgium

Latitude 41 46' North, Longitude 50 14' West

Are the mighty Titanic Brewery sinking? It has been reported that this fine brewer of real ales has sent out hazy beer to its outlets. Hazy? Well, hazy would be flattering; cloudy is a more apt description. The offending article happened to be the seasonal Longitude (4.4%) which was well below the usual standard I have come to expect from Titanic. It tasted alright though, a very bitter light copper coloured ale with a smooth mouthfeel and sweet finish. This is a deep and complex beer, where the American hops offset the caramel sweetness to create its bitterness. Are Titanic drowning? Maybe its just a bad year for the hop or their next ale will have to be named 'Snorkel'.

Cornish Ales

It seems Cornwall is a bit of a desert for northern real ales. Its a great to be if you love Skinners and St Austell ales but for ex-pats from other parts of the UK there seems to be little choice for the real ale drinker.

Reports have trickled back to reveal St Austell pubs are not free houses and although in theory they should have guest pumps in reality that is not always true. The Cornish CAMRA branch seem fairly low-key aswell. With 13 real ale breweries scattered throughout the county from the Isles of Scilly to Redruth there should still be some choice on the pumps.

Someone suggested the possibility of a backload the next time St Austell drop of up north, "but what about the empties" I said.
