    West Sussex in the rain:
    Langham-Sundowner:a decent golden with tropical fruit;could have been a bit keener: perhaps the rainy midday didn't help.
    Arundel-Sussex Gold:what it said on the tin.
    WJ King-Horsham Best Bitter:a proper saloon bar stalwart,sweetish resinous malt with a long dry finish.What we are best at! My BOTW

    Runners and riders this week:

    Fuller Wild River
    Ringwood Fortyniner
    Flack Manor Double Drop
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Wood Farm Best

    A decent selection and the one that surprised most and gets BOTW is Fullers Wild River.

    Some of the better beers this week included Dark Star Ardennes Pale, Liverpool Organic Simcoe and Rebellion Blonde - the latter enjoyed in tip-top condition in the Bree Louise, believe it or not.

    None of these could stand up to Marble Draft though, which was a BOTW for me back in February and on just as good form in the Sheffield Tap on Saturday.

    Rather like the sound of that, PM. One of my favourite hops. The Fernandes version, a few weeks ago, was also excellent.

    My first week back on the proper stuff after the USA trip and I had a right old mixed bag of beers.

    The winner by an absolute street length though was Marble Lagonda tried, where else but, The Baum.

    It took at least 6 trial brews to get this one right and they took feedback from their customers as to which one they preferred.

    The Baum had 3 of the trial brews and it was well worth the effort as the chosen brew is superb.

    I had 5 pints of it on Tuesday, so it must have been good against 6 other options.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
