    Decent start to the drinking week in The Baum on Tuesday.

    I was invited to a wine tasting there in the afternoon so I started off with a pint of Brightside Solstice which is pleasant but not too strong tasting so I could preserve my palate for the wine.

    After the tasting I finished off with a pint of last weeks BOTW Oldershaw Heavenly Blonde.

    This was a good decision as when we went back that evening it had gone as CAMRA were holding their monthly meeting upstairs.

    Another pint of the Solstice and then on to Burscough Canon Stout and Wilson Potter In The Black both dark and very tasty.

    Back to the light stuff with Summer Wine Portside a light and hoppy 4.2%er and finished off with an old favourite Phoenix Hopsack.

    As The Baum was voted Rochdale, Oldham & Bury overall Pub Of The Year at the meeting Simon was in a very good mood.

    It now goes forward into the area judging when it will be up against some real heavyweights like The Crown in Stockport.

    If anything beats the Dark Star Revelation I was guzzling at the Nags Head earlier, I shall eat my hat!

    Shall have to be a very tasty and hoppy Kirkstall Pale Ale, sampled several times heavily over the weekend. £2.90 in North Bar, bang on.

    Hog's Back TEA
    Fuller Smith and Turner Gales Seafarer
    Copper Dragon Best Bitter
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    Jenning's Cumberland Ale

    Difficult to choose between two very different beers-Seafarers and Golden Pippin, but my nomination goes to F S and T's Gales Seafarers. Fullers seem to be on top of the game now, I'd not tried this refreshing amber session beer, and I hope to be drinking more Golden Pippin this coming week.

    Very quiet week with only 2 beers drunk: the ever reliable Oakham Bishops Farewell and BOTW St Austell Cornish IPA. Bottled, from M&S and much better than expected both as a drink and in a stew.
