    Couple of decent sessions ,I really like Barnsley Better brewed by Wentworth but BOTW went to Dark Star's Art of Darkness which at 3.5% was still packed with flavour and a well crafted bitter finish.It tasted more like a porter without the poke rather than a dark mild but it went down easily in The George,Croydon.

    Next week may be popping into The Riser in Berko,a safe bet for a BOTW.

    Beer of the week is,
    Darkstar Art of Darkness, only 3.5 % but bursting with flavour, doesn't taste like it looks but fruity and bitter, the nearest similar beer I can think of is Timothy Taylors Ram Tam which is fairly rare down south since the demise of the Brickmakers .Other beers this week were ,
    Courage Best
    Fullers London Pride
    Cheddar Ales Potholer
    West Berks Dr Hexters Healer
    West Berks Maggs Magnificent Mild

    Here's the ones for this week.

    Cronx Kotchin 3.9%
    East London Brewing Company Foundation Bitter 4.2%
    Redemption Urban Dusk 4.6%
    Naylor's Northern Gold 5.0%
    Brodie's Citra Pale 5.0%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.3%
    Brodie's Spiced Saison (keykeg) 7.0%
    Magic Rock Human Cannonball (keykeg) 9.2%

    Most of these were pretty good, but the Spiced Saison was gassy like proper keg or a bottle so I wo'nt be bothering with that one again. The Kotchin was rather bland.

    The award goes to East London Brewing Company Foundation Bitter at the Coronet in Holloway Road for £2.09. It's everything a brown cooking beer should be; clear, hoppy and very easy to drink. The Redemption Urban Dusk was also very good. Both of these breweries seem to be producing great quality beers, so I just hope that they can prosper given all the competition around.
