    St Peters Ruby Red Ale for me.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.

    Sam Smiths Taddy Porter (bottled)
    Hogs Back Majest.e.a.
    Thwaites Fine Reign
    West Coast Riptide IPA
    Purity Ubu
    Fullers Hope & Glory
    Itchen Valley Calypso
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop and Greensand IPA
    but nothing measured up to the Greensand IPA

    It's a straight fight this week between two beers enjoyed on an extended crawl of Brighton on Saturday - Dark Star Summer Solstice in the Victory Inn and Brodies Old Street Pale Ale in the Evening Star. Tough call, but I think the Dark Star just gets the nod.

    A much better week, this week, after the last two dismal showings. Tried this week:

    Brown Cow - Jubilee Bitter.
    Thwaites - Torch Light.
    Conwy - Mulberry Dark.
    Loddon - Hllaballoo.
    Acorn - Legend.
    Marstons - Father Time.
    Jennings - Tom Fool.
    Roosters - Buckeye.
    Pictish - Black Diamond.
    Saltaire - Elderflower Blonde.
    Salamander - Gun Jumper.
    Rat - Bubonic Stout.
    Highland - St Magnus.
    Brew Co - Crystallised.
    Dark Star - American Pale Ale.
    Fernandes - Triple O.
    Ossett - Citra.
    Navigation - Stout.
    Fernandes - Jackdaw MILD.
    Raw - Hop Ale.

    Honorable mentions for the Torch Light and Elderflower Blonde, but the Buckeye blew me away. Lots of American and New Zealand hops give it bags of flavour and aroma for a 3.5% beer. Lovely stuff.

    It would appear Roosters are on a bit of a roll. 'oldboots' recently nominated Leghorn for BOTW and 'Pubsignman' chose Yankee as his last week. Any doubts I had about the Fozard brothers taking over from the Franklins, have now evaporated.

    I was lucky enough to encounter Greensand IPA at the Farnham Beerex this year it was sensational.

    Absolute nothing except Tetleys Tea bags in hot water. Not even a shandy due too working all over the Jubilee period. I will make up for in this week though. Six day off now from today.

    Well, after a week in Menorca, the choice for BOTW is limited.

    WE were due to land at 14:30 in the afternoon, but a 5 hour dealy scuppered that idea.

    This meant that the intended few beers in The Baum had to be very truncated, but at least we still got there for a couple.

    BOTW will be Jennings Queen Bee. A very pleasant session ale at 3.6% despite the added honey, that I'm not normally a fan of.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
