    Thornbridge - Jaipur

    Enjoyed 4 of these in the The Oast House in Manchester. For once we were even abke to find a seat on the Friday night. While the new year resolutioners are making the gym horrendous at the moment, pubs are a lot nicer on Fridays!

    St Austell Proper Job
    Shepherd Neame Bishops Finger
    Courage Best
    West Berks Mr Chubbs Lunchtime Bitter
    Fullers Black Cab Stout
    Plain Ales Innocence

    Four vying for first place this week,
    Proper Job was good but a bit near the end of the barrel,
    Bishops Finger again good but not really my favourite style of beer,
    The Black Cab and Innocence were both very good but totally different beer styles,( I like both).
    After some deliberation I am going for,
    Fullers Black Cab Stout ,the first time Iv'e tried this beer.

    A few decent pints this week

    Nutbrook - Responsibley
    Mallinsons - Tethys
    Bradfield - Belgian Blue
    Banks - Sunbeam
    Nutbrook - Mongrel
    Green Duck - Ducks Arse
    Ossett - Elizabeth Rose
    Jennings - Cockle Warmer

    BOTW Nutbrook - Mongrel , a lovely nutty roasty chewy brown beer

    A close second is the Bradfield Belgian Blue , a very good moreish beer which loses points as it is Blue , well more purple to be accurate

    A few pints went down in and around Aylesbury,and BOTW was Fullers Bengal Lancer which sailed through the three pint test with ease in The Red Lion,Marsworth ,a very authentic village boozer.

    The upcoming week looks quiet,The George in Croydon may be my only salvation.

    At the risk of being boring Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild, only the pub I drank it in changed - Worksop this time.

    A word to the wise don't drink three pints of it at the end of a pub crawl

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Interesting selection this week after a day or two boating with BF around Aylesbury:
    Chiltern 300's
    Aylesbury Hornswoggler, Illumination Porter
    Vale - King of Snow
    Butcombe Bitter
    Adnams Southwold
    Fullers Bengal Lancer
    Darkstar Hophead
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    I enjoyed the Illumination Porter, Hophead and Bengal Lancer but BOTW is Vale Brewery's King of Snow. Light and drinkable at 3.9% but with plenty of flavour it's like a dialled down Gravitas. Very appropriate name today too.

    One (unplanned) pub visit.
    Surrey Hills-Shere Drop. Mid to pale, nettles and citrus, hedge fruit. A Surrey classic. My BOTW

    An excellent week for beer, bolstered by a visit to Leeds. This week's contenders:

    WharfeBank - Slingers Gold, Tether Blonde.
    Ridgeside - Jailbreak, Cascade.
    Moorhouses - Black Cat.
    Kirkstall - Three Swords.
    Geeves - No1.
    Ilkley - Lotus IPA.
    Oxfordshire - Churchill.
    Thornbridge - St Petersburg.
    Leeds - Midnight Bell.
    Bridgehouse - Porter.
    Elland - Cascade Three Ways.
    Hawkshead - Brodie's Prime.
    Milk Street - The Usual.
    Wentworth - Oatmeal Stout.
    Box Steam - Dark & Handsome.
    Roosters - Humble Pie.
    Acorn - Winter Pale Ale.
    Great Heck - Powerhouse.
    Rudgate - Teiwaz.
    Fernandes - Jackdaw MILD, Nelson IPA, Triple OOO.
    Great Heck - Golden Bull.

    Some good beers in there, but it came down to the Black Cat versus the Three Swords, both sampled in The Grove, Leeds. The latter just shaded it.
