    An excellent week for beer, both in choice and quality. Tried the following:

    Phoenix - West Coast IPA.
    Fullers - Wild River.
    Allgates - Golden Aeld.
    Fernandes - Simcoe.
    Otley - O3 Boss.
    Brew Co - Brewers Gold.
    Great Heck - Golden Bull.
    Truefitt - Ironopolis Stout.
    Roosters - Welsummer.
    Nethergate - Basing Park Blonde.
    Roosters / Odells - The Accomplice.
    Red Squirrel - Red Dawn MILD.
    Cap House - Miners a Pint.
    Cap House - Foxhunter.
    Cap House - Miners Light.
    Cap House - Ruby.
    Rat - Red Rat.
    Elland - Midsummers Night Porter.

    On a quiet week, the Ironopolis or the Red Dawn would probably have won. However, the Accomplice was an absolutely stunning IPA. Not only BOTW, but my beer of the year so far.

    This was our last week in Cornwall and our beers were:

    St Austell HSD
    Moor Nor'hop
    Skinners Spriggan Ale
    Hop Kettle Hay Bale
    Pot Belly Welland Truly
    Penzance Brisons Bitter

    Although I found the Skinners to be one of the best , must give BOTW to St Austell HSD.
    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.
