    No more English beer for me this week apart from a couple of pints of Lees Bitter tonight and that will never win my BOTW.

    BOTW is another from Black Jack called The Blind, tried several times in the Baum last night.

    Light, hoppy with a citrus tang. Very moreish.

    One pub, one local beer festival:
    Harvey's: Sussex Best Bitter -luscious malt, slightly peppery.Excellent.
    Hop Back: Summer Lightning-on good form, but not the full on experience of a few years' back.
    Acorn:very pale, very Yorkshire, very tasty.
    Sunny Republic:Beach Blonde-very pale,well hopped with a mix of pacific basin hops, but not the famous Nelson Sauvin.(I can recognise that one!)Good beer from a very new micro.
    Castle Rock: Black Gold-A cracking jet black dry MILD. Bit of earthiness. Lovely. My BOTW

    Triple fff Moondance
    Courage Best
    Wells Bombadier
    Courage Directors
    Darkstar Partridge Best
    Darkstar Hophead
    Darkstar American Pale Ale
    Skinners Betty Stogs

    BOTW is Darkstar American Pale Ale just edging out the Hophead.

    A very modest week so not a lot of choice for BOTW,but I will plump for the pint of Fullers Wild River I had in The Doric Arch,Euston.

    After a disappointing trip to Guiseley on Saturday things got much better returning to North Yorks, Kirkstall Three Swords gets an honourable mention but Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby MILD just is BOTW probably any week.

    A few ales sampled on a visit to Norfolk:
    St Austell Podium IPA
    Beestons Worth The Wait
    Woodfordes Admirals Reserve and Nelsons Revenge
    Brancaster Sharpie and Oystercatcher
    Adnams Ghost Ship
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    All of these were good and both the Brancaster beers went down well with Brancaster Oystercatcher BOTW. At 4.4% it's fairly pale, bitter but not citrussy and gets better as you drink more!

    A good solid week on the beer front, with one or two very good indeed. Tried this week:

    Pennine - Amber Necker.
    Mallinsons - Station Best Bitter.
    Acorn - Gorlovka.
    Fernandes - Sunshine IPA.
    Tigertops - Hop Destiny.
    Orkney - Dark Island.
    Brew Co - Viceroy Gold.
    Otley - 01.
    Vale - Black Swan MILD.
    Ilkley - Black MILD.
    Salamander - Shiva.
    Fernandes - Red Hop.
    Fernandes - Duke of York.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.

    With honorable mentions for the Hop Destiny and Sunshine IPA, the Station BB turned out to be another beauty from Mallinsons.
