    The Grove has been good for it recently. . However I do notice that when trying beers in there that I've had elsewhere, the hoppiness seems dialled back and more of a thicker texture to the beer. I don't know what to make of that? Maybe they use sparklers less than in places like the Hop and other Ossett houses, which affects the texture.

    No pub,again this week,but I had an interesting couple of beers from the new Canterbury Brewers set up at the Foundry in that City. Foundry Torpedo , a hop rasping bruiser, and FoundryMan's Gold, a citrussy Golden ale. I haven't been to the Foundry yet, though I rermeber the premisses as Quine's Diner-that shows my age!

    Plenty of good beers last week on our saunter round Scarborough, Edinburgh & Durham.

    Glentworth Twice Over was very good in The Valley Scarborough.

    The Fyne Jarl in Teuchtars Landing in Leith was excellent and I had 5 pints of it over the 2 days we were there.

    Tempest Temptation was also very good in the Dagda Bar in Edinburgh.

    Durham was a little disappointing as much of the beer was decent but little was excellent.

    Pick of the bunch here was probably the rebadged Mordue Radgie Gadgie in The Court Inn.

    I think that overall the Fyne Jarl wins it.

    After a couple of bottles of red wine and 7 courses of Michelin starred poncey food at Kitchin, I really needed a great pint and it delivered in spades.

    Nearly forgot last weeks Ale of the week. Top two out of many was Box Steam Broad Gauge & Moorhouse Black Panther both nice strong dark ales so hard choice but I will say Ale of the week is Box Steam Broad Gauge gets this lasts weeks Ale of the week as its more unusual.

    A bit late, but I'll nominate Pelforth de Printemps - not earth-shattering, but a very rare example of a French seasonal beer offered by a major brewer (owned by Heineken in this case) - sampled in the Brasserie Les Deux Palais in Paris.

    Another goody from the Kent Brewery topped my list week, Beyond The Pale at the Old Fountain.
