    Decent beer this week came mainly in bottled form as I managed to find a couple of interesting South African brews in some of the bars along Long St in Cape Town. Brewers & Union Dark Lager was a bit too bland for my liking but Darling Bone Crusher was a worthy BOTW - an excellent Wit beer with orange peel and corriander.

    I returned to the UK yesterday and sank a few pints of Doom Bar at a wedding reception last night, but the Bone Crusher was, sad to say, the better beer.

    Yet another very low consumption week,this is getting boring.So boring in fact that McMullens Country was in the lead until being easily overwhelmed for BOTW by Oakham JHB ,in good nick in The Bull,London Colney.

    Triumph Chinook IPA was excellent in their brewhouse bar in Philadelphia.

    But BOTW is going to go to Nodding Head Bill Payer IPA tried in their brew pub in Philadelphia.

    A cask conditioned IPA at a sensible (for the USA) 5.1% that could hold its own on any British Bar.

    One of only 4 cask conditioned ales I managed in 21 nights moving around the States, although I had loads of decent craft brews.

    A special mention for Magic Hat No. 9, Big River Nashville Steamer, District Chophouse IPA and Yards Pale Ale, my favourite 4 craft brews from the rest of the trip.

    Having spent the last few days camping just outside Auld Reekie, this week's offerings are entirely Scottish. Bit of a mixed bag, but some of them were very good.

    Belhaven - IPA.
    Stewart - Edinburgh Festival.
    Stewart - 80 Shillings.
    Caledonian - Golden Son.
    Orkney - Corncrake Ale.
    Caledonian - Dutchman.
    Orkney - Latitude Pilsner.
    Kelburn - Dark Moor.
    Kelburn - Misty Law.
    Highland - Orkney IPA.
    Highland - Pale Ale.
    Highland - Dark Monro.
    Highland - Scapa Special.
    TSA Brew Co - Lomond Gold.
    Inveralmond - Ossian.
    William Bros - Caesar Augustus.
    Stewart - Edinburgh Gold.

    The Dark Moor and Orkney IPA were in the running, but after a day of trying to avoid festival flyer wielding students in the Old Town, the Ossian, in the sanctuary of the Oxford Bar, was sublime.

    My beer of the week goes to Nottingham Rock MIld tried in the Admiral Sir John Warren in Stapleford,this is a really dark mild with loads of flavour and it was at the bargain price of £1.29 a pint.

    I've never really raved about Timmy Taylor's Landlord, but then I'd only ever had it down south before. However, it was sublime in the Nottingham House in Cleethorpes last weekend.
