    Saltaire Winters Ale

    All were good but the Victory Whitebeard Stout was outstanding. I've never heard of the brewery and can't seem to find out anything about it but the stout was rich with a serious depth of flavour and powerful at 6.8%.

    No mention of Whitebeard Stout though.

    Really enjoyed Brodies London Fields Pale Ale in The Cross Keys,Covent Garden which was a worthy BOTW.

    Heavily citrus ,an easy session ale but by the end of the night the tastebuds were begging for mercy.I did have a few more than I was planning

    Unfortunately, no major sessions in the run up to Xmas, just the odd pint grabbed here and there:

    Fernandes - Chrome Dome.
    Fernandes - What The Dickens.
    Fernandes - Sunshine IPA.
    Raw - Dark Peak Stout.
    Fernandes - Rum For Cover.
    Leeds - Midnight Bell.

    A toss up between the IPA and the Stout, with the latter just edging it.

    That makes sense as I found it in The Merchants in Rugby. A fine ale house and supporter of local breweries.
    Thanks lc, you have brought light into my darkness.

    My last BOTW for 2012 was a decent pint of Gales Seafarers in the Blue Boar, Poole. To be fair, it didn't have much competition.

    I shall now go and ponder over my Beer of the Year.
