    Had some very good pints on Friday between Cask, Knott Bar, Port St Beer House, Smithfield Hotel and the Gaslamp but the only one I can remember is the Marble - Pint I had in the Smithfield. I seem to recall we drank it dry too.

    Yorkshire and adjacent counties:
    Jennings -Crag Rat.An OK golden ale.
    Black Sheep-Progress. Hold the front page-BLack Sheep have discovered hops after 20 years.Nutty amber with long rasping hop finish.
    Yorkshire Dales-Muker Silver.An old favourite inspite of myself. Very pale, very hoppy, very austere.
    Theakston -Old Peculier.Another old favourite.Black as sin and as rewarding.
    Wensleydale-Semer Water Summer aleGood to see this selling well at the Coverbridge.Pale, citrus,background sweetness.
    Wall's-The Dark Side.An exceptionally good Milk Stout-thought it was a porter-from a new brewery for me, again at the Coverbridge. Black, again, with a lasting tight white head.Hedgerow fruits with a dry finish. Wonderful.
    Theakston-Best Bitter. A welcome blast from the past. Clover in the palate.

    Plenty tried this week for a change and most were very good quality:
    Oakham Scarlet Macaw, Bishops Farewell
    Wentworth Bumble Beer
    Milestone Olde English Ale
    Titanic White Star, Plum Porter
    Pheonix West Coast IPA
    Red Willow Shameless IPA
    George Wright Pipe Dream
    Buxton Kinder Stout
    Allgates Tutti i Cancelli Tipo
    Bass
    Acorn Millenium IPA
    Weetwood Old Dog
    Townhouse Audley Gold

    As Mr Fastard notes, the Audley Gold was very good as were the Shameless IPA, Kinder Stout and both Oakham beers. The Weetwood Old Dog was old dog. BOTW was Titanic Plum Porter - magnificent!

    I spent Saturday afternoon wandering round some of the new 'craft' beer pubs that have sprung up in the Islington/Hoxton area. It wasn't a cheap afternoon, but I did at least get to sample some beers from the new wave of London breweries - breweries that have been conspicuosly absent from a lot of the capital's more established ale houses.

    Two really stood out from the rest - London Brewing Co Old Fountain New Tricks (a beer brewed to comemerate the Old Fountain's recent Saturday opening) and East London Brewery Quadrant Oatmeal Stout - a lovely, silky smooth stout with bags of flavour and a worthy BOTW.

    ROBCamra in agreeing with Spinko shocker!!!

    Can't disagree with the man, despite several decent contenders this week.

    BOTW is Marble Pint tried quite a few times in The Baum in the just over 3 hours that it managed to stay on the bar.
