    Derbyshire and neighbouring counties:
    Batemans XB:Fine but unfashionable,malty session bitter.
    Bradfield Farmers Belgium Blueark ruby,spicy berries ,earthy, leaf tea.
    Marston's EPA: Decent pint of a dull beer.
    Marston's Pedigree: decent pint of Ped.
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA: intense, seroius ,floral, easily drinkable.
    Thornbridge Kipling: Lovely fruity and seductive beer.
    Thornbridge Wild Swan: Pennine session beer. Good flavour for the aBV
    Peak Ales Noggin Filler 5%abv:Good mellow dark 'un.
    Abbeydale Frostbite 4.3%abv: pale 'n' hoppy.Spice, citrus,long bitter finish.
    Abbeydale Absolution 5.1%abv.Touch sweeter and more earthy than much Pennine stuff.Good and English.
    Oakwell Barnsley Bitter 3.8%abv. Back in the day-before my time-the former incarnation of this was proper fighting juice.Anyway, this is a prime mid brown session ale,nutty with blackberry.

    On reflection , my BOTW is Thornbridge Jaipur, because I've been looking for this for at least 5 years, and surprisingly it justified the hype. On the whole, I prefer Kipling from the Thornbridge beers tried to date, and I tend to favour the more earthy Abbeydale ales to the uber hygenic Thornbridge.

    Another very quiet week with just the two sampled: Hobgoblin It's Christmas, a touch too sweet and malty for me and the ever excellent BOTW Oakham Bishops Farewell, which I've now discovered you can make delicious bread from as well as drinking.

    It's been a while since I've seen anything from Westerham around these parts, but I managed to find two of them on Friday night - God's Wallop and an excellent pint of Westerham 1965 Special Bitter Ale, which pips Gales HSB this week.

    Quite a few good beers last week.

    Kelham Island Captain Crimbo was good in Kosmonaut in Manchester.

    Nook Blue Sky was also very good in The Salford Arms in Salford.

    BOTW is going to be Pin-Up Milk Stout. Smooth, black and creamy, absolutely gorgeous.

    The girlie on the pump clip isn't bad either.
