    Another decent week for choice, but more misses than hits, unfortunately. Tried this week:

    Moorhouses - APA.
    Lancaster - Pearl.
    Arundel - New Horizons.
    Cairngorm - Red Mountain.
    Ridgeside - Jailbreak.
    Roosters - Flame Out.
    Pennine - Spring Barley.
    Saltaire - Rye Pale Ale.
    Brew Co - Cedar Luke Amber.
    Fernandes - American Pale.
    Wentworth - Rock Spalt.
    Rudgate - Ruby MILD.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.

    With honorable mentions for the Cedar Luke and American Pale, I thought the APA was outstanding.

    That would be 'Rapture'. I rather like it too.

    I managed to find the elusive Greene King XX Mild this week - a decent enough pint of mild although something of an anticlimax after waiting so long to find it.
    BOTW looked like being the Hawkshead offering from the 'Spoons festival until I stumbled across the 'London Breweries Festival' at the Hope in Carshalton on Saturday. It was good to try beers from some London breweries that were still new to me - London Fields Love Not War was a fine golden ale but BOTW goes to East London Nightwatchman - a fairly complex copper coloured bitter that slipped down a treat.

    Conwy - Lemon Ale was pretty tasty in the Stick Or Twist JDW in Leeds.

    Mention also goes to Kirkstall - Prototype (Number 1?) which was on in the Cross Keys. A pale and drinkable lunchtime pint at 3.7%.

    Kelham Island 45 rpm was excellent as always and Old Slewfoot Citraville APA was outstanding.

    It's going to be hard to beat the Citraville this week, but I'll give it a try.
    Nope! Citraville it is although Liverpool One's Liverpool Light tried hard. Tested in the Liverpool 1 Bridewell on Sunday.

    Playing a bit of catch up here - good job I star the decent beers on my list! Winner for this week was Banks Sunbeam at Dartford's Ivy Leaf.
