    As I don't post very often on the BOTW mainly because I don't get to the pub much more than once a week, I felt compelled to nominate Hook Norton's Double Stout which was in such fine form today that I had a second pint rather than switch to the Old Growler. It's quite a few years since I last drank this excellent beer and the one thought that came into my mind was why on earth do people drink Guinness.

    This was in the Leytonstone Spoons the Walnut Tree and the odd thing is that it isn't on the current Spoons guest beer list.

    Nothing like a first home defeat in 34 matches to get you drinking

    Three Tuns - Solstice
    Abbeydale - Fargate
    Mallinsons - Topaz Centennial
    Kelham Island - Riders on the Storm
    Elland - Junga at Heart
    Accorn - Forrester
    Tunnfield - Devils Chair
    Tiny Rebel - Urban IPA

    BOTW Tiny Rebel - Urban IPA , a new brewery for me and very impressed with the beer

    Tunnfield is also a new Brewery to me , i take it they are from south Shropshire judging by the beers name , Devils Chair is a Shropshire landmark down on the Stipperstones Hills , but can not find anymore info on them

    Cheers for that , i never thought about Facebook , strange for a new brewery not to have its own website , although if you ever go to Minsterly they are still struggling with those new fangled Telephones

    A busy week for beer starting with a trip up the Aire valley with A&H, and including a look at two small breweries

    Oakham - JHB
    Junction - Blonde
    T. Taylors - Landlord
    Saltaire - Blonde
    Castle Rock - Harvest Pale
    Saltaire - Cascadian Black
    Copper Dragon - Golden Pippin
    Ilkley - Mary Jane
    Thornbridge - Kipling
    St Peters - Mild
    Ilkley - Dinner Ale
    Moorhouses - Pirates Gold
    Salamander - Route 66
    York - Guzzler
    Daleside - Old Leg Over
    Hawkshead - Windemere Pale
    Ossett - Yorkshire Blonde
    Greene King - Olde Trip
    Greene King - Old Golden Hen
    Theakstons - Infallible
    Theakstons - Lightfoot
    Black Sheep - Progress
    Acorn - Barnsley Bitter
    Magic Rock - Curious
    Knaresborough - Choco/cherry Milk Stout
    Magic Rock - Dark Arts

    Stand out beers from Junction in Baildon, Knaresborough, and of course Magic Rock, but BOTW is Salamander Route 66

    A decent week, this week, including one of the most thought provoking beers I've had for a long time.

    Oakham - JHB.
    Boggart - Rum Porter.
    Junction - Blonde.
    Salamander - Werewolf.
    Ilkley - Mary Jane.
    Saltaire - Blonde.
    Castle Rock - Harvest Pale.
    York - Guzzler.
    Ossett - Amber Gambler.
    Saltaire - Cascadian Black.
    Copper Dragon - Golden Pippin.
    Ilkley - Chief.
    Thornbridge - Kipling.
    Kirkstall - Three Swords.
    Pennine - Real Blonde.
    Ascot - On The Rails.
    Scarborough - Scarborough Stout.

    BOTW is On the Rails, a 3.8% dark ale with fantastic richness for its strength. Some sources describe it as a MILD, but there's probably too much hop character for that.

    I must give a special mention to the Junction Blonde, which was a total surprise. Very pale in colour, I was expecting something citrussy and floral. Instead, it had the unmistakable whiff of the Midlands, with that hint of sulphur on the nose. Very drinkable, but totally unexpected.

    Went to a beer festival back in the Dorset village I grew up in and was pleased to find they had the full range of beers from the nearby Sunny Republic brewery. Hop Dog and Dorset Cross were both very enjoyable but the Dolphin Amber, based on a 1920's recipe from the old Dolphin Poole Brewery, was as good as anything I've had this year.

    So BOTW is Sunny Republic Dolphin Amber
