    A very poor week for beer,a session on McMullens Cask enough to turn anyone teetotal but a very decent pint of Red Squirrel Conservation Bitter making my BOTW in the unlikely surroundings of The Blackbirds,Hertford.

    Next week passing through Stoke Bruerne might get lucky,more likely BOTW in The George prematch.

    Very restricted in beer variety this week due to spending to much time at work ,(not by choice).
    Milk Street Folklore
    Milk Street Mermaid
    Milk Street Beer
    Skinner's Betty Stogs

    Milk Street Beer , 5% a bit sweet tasting for me but easily won BOTW for this week.

    A fair selection this week, none of them were unimpressive.

    Bragdy Conwy Balchder Cymru 4.0%
    Brain's St David's Ale 4.1%
    London Fields Love Not War 4.2%
    Brentwood Boston Brown 4.4%
    O'Hanlon's Original Port Stout 4.8%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%
    Cronx Entire 5.2%
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.3%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Brodie's Superior London Porter 7.8%

    The three contenders were the Cronx Entire, the St David's Ale (Brains can brew a decent beer if they try!) and the Boston Brown. The award goes to the Boston Brown simply because it was something a bit different and served in excellent condition at £2.09 in the King's Ford at Chingford. It's an American Brown so the appearance is more like a boring brown bitter but it is rather different in that it has a slight sweetness with a more subtle hop flavour than most English bitters.

    BOTW Brentwood Boston Brown

    Kent,London 'n' Essex. All good, nothing exceptional:
    Brecon:Genesis 2:ii Imperious Beacons-dark brown dry bitter chocolate Imperial Welsh Stout. On reflection, an ambitious choice for 1120 am.
    Adnams : Southwold bitter-sometimes, "old friends are best."A blast from the North Sea. Unfortunately, the Ghost Ship ran out.
    Adnams:Broadside-Dark ruby,luscious malt,just this side of sweet.Another old friend.
    Buxton: Moor Top-Pale with a seaweedy twang, reminiscent of Adnams in the 70s.
    Dark Star: Sussex Extra Stout- Black,dry and smooth, but disappointingly one dimensional for this brewery.
    Shepherd Neame: Amber Ale-Tasty malts and farmyard hops without the astringency associated with Master Brew. Actually, this was the sole beer drunk w/e 24th.Feb.
    My BOTW Brecon:[I]Genesis 2:ii Imperious Beacons

    Decent week for me, with a pleasing mixture of beer styles. Tried the following:

    Tyne Bank - Silver Dollar.
    Woodforde's - Norfolk Gold.
    Saltaire - South Island Pale.
    Little Valley - Hebden's Wheat.
    Great Newsome - Stone Creek.
    Saltaire - Coffee Hazelnut Porter.
    Brew Co - Tantalus.
    Hop Studio - Gold.
    Moorhouses - Black Cat MILD.
    Treboom - Yorkshire Sparkle.
    Great Heck - Angel.
    Kelham Island - Riders on the Storm.
    Elland - Nettle Thrasher.

    Some good beers in there, but the pick this week were the South Island Pale and Tantalus. As I mostly seem to nominate pale hoppy brews, I'll give the honour instead to Tantalus - a rich, sweetish brew in the style of an Abbey Dubbel. Very enjoyable.
