    Again only a few to choose from,
    Darkstar Hophead
    Darkstar Partridge
    Darkstar American Pale Ale
    Salopian Oracle
    Belhaven St Andrews Ale
    Skinner's Betty Stogs
    Gales HSB
    Black Sheep Progress
    BOTW goes to Salopian Oracle,the APA was as good but as it was the first time I'd encountered the Oracle I give it the edge.

    The ever excellent Oakham Bishops Farewell and BOTW Salamander Ramraider are the only contenders. I've never come across Salamander beers before but enjoyed this 4.8% porter very much. Easily passed the 3 pint test.

    Some good ones tried this week, including quite a few from the larger brewers.

    Adnam's English Red Ale 4.5%
    Redemption Urban Dusk 4.6%
    Jenning's Snecklifter 5.1%
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.3%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Greene King Abbot Reserve 6.5%
    Brodie's Mentol Brown 6.5%
    Brodie's Citra For Breakfast 10.1% (keykeg)
    Brodie's Big Mofo Stout 10.5% (keykeg)
    Brodie's Romanov Stout 12.1% (keykeg)

    The clear winner this week is Brodie's Jamaican Stout, a dry stout for the strength with a high hop content.

    After paul of horsham and Pubsignman had pointed the way a fortnight ago,once I spotted the Magic Rock/Dark Star Rock Star in The Old Cross Tavern,Hertford I had to give it a go ,and it won BOTW hands down.Described an an American Brown beer,there was a lot going on in that pint and the crisp bitterness to finish with made it a worthy winner.So good in fact that two more slipped down the next day in The George,Croydon.

    Certainly not a boring brown beer.
