    There are no Spoons beers at all this week, what was I thinking!

    Brodie's Mild 3.6%
    Magic Rock Rapture 4.6%
    Brodie's Galaxy Pale 5.0%
    Howling Hops American Amber Ale 5.0%
    Skinner's Jingle Knockers 5.5%
    East London Brewing Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%
    Dark Star Rock Star 6.0%
    Brodie's Mentol Brown 6.5%

    To be honest I could happily nominate any of the above apart from the Skinner's one.
    I will therefore go for the new kids on the block at the Cock in Hackney. I was told that the American Amber was 5% not the 5.5% shown on the clip.

    BOTW Howling Hops American Amber Ale

    Very much a boring brown beer week this week at the local,
    Courage Best (Its Courage Best!)
    Wells and Youngs Winter Warmer (A once fine ale now dumbed down and boring)
    Milk Street Mermaid (not bad but nothing special either)
    Milk Street Winter Spice (not overly spiced but not really my thing)
    Wychwood Wychcraft (bottled, not brown,"thrice hopped" but standard fayre really)
    Blacksheep Riggwelter(dark and not bad)
    saved at the 11th hour by BOTW ,the dependable
    Darkstar Hophead.

    It looked like I was going to have to nominate CW Directors due to a bad run of ales in Wolverton but the week was saved at the death by a pint of Mordue Howay in a Manger in The Red Lion,Leighton Buzzard on Sunday evening.

    A very good festive ale,dark and malty but balanced by bitterness,it flew down.Liked the name as well.

    Annual pilgrimage to The Old Fountain should provide a winner for next week ,more likely than the pub crawl around Hertford on Black Friday.
