    A beer famine after a feast the previous week,so BOTW an easy choice in Dove T'ale another winner from Mighty Oak.Full of flavour for a 3.9% and in top condition in The old Cross Tavern,Hertford.

    Midweek visit to Brum might yield a few decent contenders

    Hard choice this week, not because of the quantity of different beers but because the quality hasn't been outstanding even in usually reliable places

    it will be Kirkstall Dissolution from this list although the Leeds Acension came very close and the Mary Hoppins was a great disappointment considering the good things heard about it.

    Roosters Buckeye
    Salamander Mind Meld mIld
    Rudgate Jorvik Blonde
    Wensleydale Gherman
    Leeds Acension
    Roosters Maypole
    Salamander Thebe
    Naylors Pinnacle Stout
    Moorhouses Black Cat
    Moorhouses Blond Witch
    Moorhouses Pride of Pendle
    Moorhouses Pendle Witches Brew
    Greene King No Tick Bitter
    Black Sheep Bitter
    Greene King Libertine
    Ilkley Mary Hoppins
    Mahou lager
    Leeds Pale
    Ilkley MJ Pale
    Fosters lager
    Sam Smiths Sovereign
    Kirkstall 3 Swords
    Revolution Clash London Porter
    Kirkstall Dissolution IPA
    Rudgate Lokis Mischief
    Elland Beyond the Pale
    Castle Rock Screech Owl

    This week, Brodies gets the nod. Saturday's Brighton mini-crawl started with London Fields Pale Ale - hoppy & sessionable, and compared very favourably with the Hophead that followed. Last beer of the night was a half of the 6.1% Hackney Red IPA - very hoppy indeed.

    So: Brodies London Fields Pale Ale it is.

    It's not been a particularly prolific week and I've even been drinking lager. Had a couple of nice pints of KI Pale Rider but my BotW is going to be Harveys Sussex Bitter, enjoyed at the Brewers Arms down here in Lewes. You can't beat drinking beer on the doorstep of the brewery.

    A quiet week with only two ales tried:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Art Brew Liz's Lemon

    I usually like Art Brew's beers but the Liz's Lemon was a touch bitter even for me so BOTW goes to the ever excellent Oakham Bishops Farewell.
