    A few decent pints in The Baum on Tuesday.

    Wilson Potter Ruby Red was very nice but the surprise of the night was Greenfield Thirst Born.

    I'm not a great fan of Greenfield brews, they are very in and out.

    However Thirst Born is definitely in, I had three pints.

    It's in the lead by a street length at the moment.

    No beer for me this week, as I'm taking an antibiotic that's incompatible with alcohol.

    Burley St Brewhouse - Laguna Seca

    A fantastic IPA from the Fox & Newt brewpub on Burley Road in Leeds. I shall be visiting there more in future, a much overlooked pub.

    There was also a tasty Kirkstall Pale Ale in North Bar, Leeds Pale in the Adelphi and Saltaire Blonde in the Templar Hotel all worthy of a mention.

    At present it's either an excellent pint of Draught Bass or the Wychwood Dirty Tackle I had last night watching the rugby.

    However I'm meeting up with a mate today for a few beers, if the trains are OK, so will reserve judgement.

    That doesn't sound good at all A&H, you'd have thought science would have come up with an alcohol tolerant antibiotic by now

    For the second week running Dark Star Revelation in a different pub ,this time The George ,Croydon.Despite being served in a plastic mug due to Palace v Brighton that evening,it still outshone the Thornbridge and Abbeydale beers on a swift trip to Sheffield.....it really was that good

    No pub this week, but I tried a couple of good Kentish 5% golden ales in boittle that I pickd up a few weeks ago: Golden Ticket from spa Brewery/Royal Tunbridge Wells Brewery-I think they are one and the same, and Hengist from the Wantsum Brewery at the old Chislet Colliery site near Canterbury. The Golden Ticket marginally gets my nomination, but they were both hoppy and tasty, and I look forward to drinking them from cask, though neither brewewry seems to reach my particular neck of the Weald.
