    Hopefully something excellent from Capitol Brewing or Chophouse brewery in Washington.

    First and only Ale I've had since the start of the Olympics Friday before last is Abbots Reserve. I'm Hopping to get some in tonight when I Finnish but it will be all Keg or London Pride as its the only place still open when I Finnish at 23.00 till 02.30 Its better than nothing after 14 days dry the first one wont touch the sides at least. So Ale of the week goes to Abbot Reserve unless something better turns up tomorrow. It did not only Doom Bar & Pride so Abbot Reserve still stands.

    I had made my mind up after my day out today in Oxford with a simply sublime pint of White Horse Village Idiot, but got back for a couple of liveners in my local , when on comes a new beer from Darkstar ,Ardennse Pale, excellent ,5.8 % full of flavour.I am now going to have to make my mind up after a couple more tomorrow.

    A decent selection and I am struggling to separate the Village Idiot and the Ardennes Pale both 10/10 perfection both BOTW
    if I have to choose one on the toss of a coin its.......... Whitehorse Village Idiot drunk in the splendid Royal Blenhim Oxford

    Yet another modest week,so not a lot to choose from.BOTW goes to Springhead Maid Marian ,I got the slightly orange sweetness then the dry finish so it proved an interesting drink kept well in The White Horse,Wareside.

    Hadrian & Border - Grainger Ale

    A bit of a mixed bag this week but I have to say the quality was generally mediocre,

    Yorkshire Heart JRT
    Treboom Kettle Drum
    Woodlands Mild
    Theakstons Best Bitter
    Old Mill Nellie Dean
    Goose Eye Black Moor
    Castle Rock Screech Owl
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    Mithril London Calling
    Black Sheep Bitter
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    York Peacocks Pride
    Leeds Pale
    Kirkstall Dissolution IPA
    Bath Gem
    Magic Rock Rapture
    Stringers No 2 Stout
    Saltaire Raspberry Blonde

    A few were extremely good but Kirkstall Dissolution IPA just beats the Magic Rock, the Bath Gem was easily the worst but that was the pub's fault not the beer so no BABOTW nomination.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best
