    Hi mim555, you've not chosen the correct thread to ask the question,just start a new thread in chitchat but never mind Iv'e not come across this new brewery, hailing from Hampshire as I do, maybe some of the other guys or gals(Gill?) who are better travelled have,I presume your "neck of the woods" is Wellingborough?

    Apologies for clogging up beer of the week, maybe Admin can move the posts to somewhere more appropriate.

    On my afternoon out yesterday I had five beers.

    East London Brewery Jamboree (4.8%)
    Brewsters Pandora (4.8%)


    And on KeyKeg

    Brodie's Brett IPA (7%)
    Brodie's Big Mofo Stout (10%)
    Brodie's Simcoe for Breakfast (10%)


    I didn't take to the Pandora as I found it somewhat sweet. It's an orange colored beer.

    The Brett IPA was cloudy and nothing special.

    The Big Mofo Stout (10%) was excellent, but a bit on the sweet side, hardly surpising given it's ABV.

    The Simcoe For Breakfast (10%) was superb. It's a major brewing achievement producing a 10% beer that drinks like a 5-6% one.

    Given the fact that the ELB is newer I am awarding it to Jamboree.

    This is similar to many of the Brodie's Pale Ales, a golden ale packed with hops, but is rather different as he uses only English hops rather than Mr Brodie who seems to have a completely global collection of hops and isn't afraid to use them.

    This isn't a criticism of either brewer, but more a note of their diversity.

    If I could award two it would be Simcoe and Jamboree, but if one then it's Jamboree!

    Quite by chance had an Oakham week.In the Engineers Arms ,Henlow there was a terrific pint of The Gentleman.A brown best bitter but with that deep bitterness ;the Oakham trademark and I assumed at the time I would find nothing better this week.However pre match in The George,Croydon there were two more Oakham brews on,both sampled with Bishops Farewell coming out on top to make BOTW.

    I find myself choosing between the light and the dark again this week. The light was Kent Brewery Going for Gold and the dark was XT Brewery Eight. Both excellent beers but the Going for Gold just edged it.
