    Dreadful week for beer but then I wasn't out much. Best beer of the week was a bottle of Nogne O Pale Ale - stunning and I've still got a bottle of their Porter and IPA left at home. BOTW next week is likely to be Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild as we're going to the Beacon in Sedgeley on Friday.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Light and dark in the Chequers:
    Kent Brewery-Cobnut: I found this a dark ruby beer, nutty and astringent. I think it was heading towards the turn, but unfortunately I'm yet to find a beer from this new brewery that I have enjoyed. They do some big hoppy ones, but I haven't seen 'em yet!
    Old Dairy-Sun Top: a delectable Pale Ale of modest ABV, but packed full of flavour. Some say it has Amarillo hops, but the pumpclip says"the finest Kentish hops". I know which way I'll vote. My BOTW ,and in line for Beer of the Year.

    A fairly low key week for me, with just one session at my village local's beer festival:

    Fernandes - Yorkshire Tyke.
    Fernandes - Octoberfest.
    Hornbeam - Citrus Temptation.
    Rat - White Rat.
    Burley Street Brewhouse - Gold.
    Rat - Queen Rat.
    Potbelly - Captain Pigwash.
    Ossett - Route 66.

    Really, only a competition between The White Rat and the Temptation, with the latter shading it.
