    I've a few to choose from this week :-

    Skinner's Cornish Knockers 4.5%
    Robinson's Unicirn Bitter 4.3%
    Robinson's Green Bullet Pale Ale 4.4%
    Robinson's Double Hop 5.0%
    Blindman's Icarus 4.5%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%
    Brodie's Kentish Town Brown IPA 6.2%
    Brodie's Big Mofo Stout 10.5% (on Keykeg)



    The 4 contenders are the Knocker, Icarus, Old Street and Big Mofo. As I believe that this is my first experience of the Blindman brewery and as it was served in really superb condition at the Coronet in Holloway Road for a mere £1.99, it's my beer of the week. My only problem with it is defining the style of beer. It could easily be called a dark bitter or a brown ale and one beer site describes it as a red beer.
    I would go for a brown ale myself.

    BOTW Blindman's Icarus.

    Another quiet-ish week, but fortunately some of those tasted were bang on form.Tried this week:

    Old Mill - Blonde Bombshell.
    Roosters - Yankee.
    Bowman - Eldorado.
    Golcar - Dark MILD.
    Raw - JR Best Bitter.
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter.
    Ironbridge - IPA.
    Rat Brewery - Red Rat.
    Fernandes - Ghost of Luis.
    Fernandes - Double Six.

    Not a cigarette paper between the MILD, Porter and Red Rat, but I'll give it to the latter - a wonderfully aromatic red ale, dry hopped with Simcoe.

    Some very fine ale in Macclesfield,Kidsgrove and Stone with BOTW going to Townhouse Audley Gold,with a fragrant nose,easy quaff and a solid bitter finish served in peak condition in The Blue Bell,Kidsgrove.

    Pushing south later in the week down the T&M and Coventry Canals so still in good ale country for now.
