    Old Dairy Inmanz 57 a special strong mild at 5.7% at Egham USC fest wins it for me, with Canterbury Brewers Wee Heavy 7.9% a close second.

    Had a fantastic 3 days at this superb fest and it is great for the beers and the company we meet up with from up and down country. Caravan already booked into a site for their August festival 16 - 19th.

    Another superb week for beer, I thought Stella* was going to be BOTW even up against competition from Moorhouses APA, Ridgeside Desert Aire, Golcar Dark Mild, Blue Monkey Sanctuary and Roosters Fort Smith but an Easter visit from Sarah Hughes in a local pub means it must be Sarah Hughes Ruby MILD








    *obviously that's the one brewed by Mallinsons

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Like Oggy I had a very good pint of this, in the Sir Robert Peel in Tamworth but it was just pipped to BOTW by Oakham Inferno in the same location.

    Having seen Gill slosh back a number of 6%+ ales in quick succession I felt rather humbled

    Anyways, my two BOTW contenders are from the Egham USC fest too. Kent Egham Session (light hoppy session beer) and Windsor & Eton Irish Treetops (a dark beer with a bottle of Irish whiskey thrown in the mix).

    The Irish Treetops just shades it.

    The Irish Treetops was a very good 5.2% and that was another that went down well for us too. It was 4.4% on the menu, but pumpclip was 5.2%.

    A more varied week this week:
    Oakham Inferno and Bishops Farewell
    Byatt's Pheonix Gold and Regal Blonde
    Bass
    Cottage Norman Conquest MM
    College Green Headless Dog
    TT Landlord

    Both the Oakham ales were, as ever, excellent but a couple of beers from the relatively new Byatt's Brewery in Coventry were something of a revelation so BOTW goes to Byatt's Pheonix Gold. An easy drinking, light but flavoursome golden ale at 4.2%.

    Elland - Beyond the Pale
    Leeds - Pale
    York - Guzzler
    Bradfield - Farmers Blonde
    Maxim - Swedish Blonde
    Brewdog - 5A.M. Saint, Punk IPA
    There were also a couple of passable lagers, Cobra - King Cobra, Zwyiec, and Tyskie.

    I think the Farmers Blonde wins, which was sampled in the Kings' Head on Huddersfield station. Great butties in there as well, I had a pork and stuffing barmcake and my fellow rugby fan had his with cheese and onion. Butties like that take only a few seconds to put together and must have a decent margin on them - more pubs should do it.

    Wadworth St George and the Dragon

    Tetley Blooming Ale

    Milestone Loxley drunk in the Falcon at Clapham gets my vote this week, followed closely by St George & the Dragon drunk in the Jolly Coopers in Hampton. Though in truth nothing I had this week struck me as exceptional, and I don't think my taste buds have been firing on all cylinders.
