    I failed to post last week,so this covers both:

    WJ King Spring Ale, Red River, Brighton Blonde and IPA
    Kirkstall Pale Ale
    Twickenham Spring Ale
    Ascot Posh Pooch
    Vale Artful Dodger
    Thornbridge Frank as Apollo
    Roosters True Grid

    Coincidentally the Kirkstall Pale Ale wins both times, drunk in the Falcon near Clapham Junction last week and the Old Bell in Fleet St this week.

    A few this week. Thursday saw a post-gym crawl around Leeds, starting at Foley's with a Lovington - Top Dog. Moved onto the Duck and Drake where there were a couple of decent pales whose names I can't remember. Ended the crawl in PIN where Leeds Pale was on form.

    Friday lunch was a couple of Ridgside - Desert Aire in the Grove, and then after work some Kirkstall Prototype 2 in the Cross Keys. A takeaway was ordered and while waiting I treated myself to a Sam Smiths Extra Stout in the Red Lion. I'm not usually a stout drinker but this is one that I like.

    Saturday however holds the winner, with the ever excellent Kelham Island Pale Rider in the Stick or Twist JDW. In my opinion the best Wetherspoons in Leeds and with the huge venue being built right behind it I expect its takings will increase soon.

    A lean week but both beers tried, Oakham Bishops Farewell and Titanic White Star, were excellent and both on at the local. Joy!

    Hopefully a couple of days boating in the Nottingham area with Mr Fastard will yield a wider variety next week.

    BOTW Titanic White Star, a Titanic ale for the second week in a row and they richly deserve the acknowledgment.

    Some excellent beers at Skipton Beer Festival, so a difficult choice this week.

    Old Spot, Light But Dark
    Cheddar Ales, Potholer
    Dark Horse, Best Bitter
    Coastal Brewery (Cornwall), Merry Maidens Mild

    Have to say that the Coastal, Merry Maidens Mild was excellent, so wins it this week

    Tuckers Maltings beer fest for me so:

    Arbor - Mild West
    Arbor - Black Eyed PA
    Arbor - Yakima valley
    Clearwater - Proper Ansome
    Devilish - Devil Best
    Jollyboat - Plunder
    Quantock - Ginger Cockney
    Summerskills - Bunker Hill
    Tintagel - Cornwall's Pride
    Yeovil - Lynx Wildcat
    Yeovil - Stout Hearted
    Yeovil - Posh IPA

    OK I'll admit Arbor and Yeovil are old favourites and would normally win my vote in any week and so it is Arbor Yakima Valley for my BOTW.
    Non Arbor / Yeovil honourable mentions go to Clearwater (a 4.2% brown malty bitter but damn good) and Jollyboat - again a good malty bitter.

    The seasonal Shepherd Neame Dragonfire is going down well in the village club at the moment...

    Some good ones this week. The Nags has had a shipload (geddit?!?) of Titanic beers, a number of which surfaced (geddit?!?) over the last seven days of which I have sunk (geddit?!?) a fair few.

    I also had a rarity - an Arbor beer that I found enjoyable. The Breakfast Stout was a good nightcap ale.

    Titanic's Plum Porter and Chocolate Stout were both excellent. Chocolate Stout shades it for this week's BOTW.
