    The half pint of Dark Star Russian Imperial Stout (10.5%,£2.50) in The George was packed full of various flavours and was drinkable but BOTW goes to a dependable old favourite Everards Tiger well kept in The Plume of Feathers ,Weedon.It may look boring and brown,but being correctly hopped makes it a great quaffing pint IMHO.

    Next week I will be doing well to get a beer

    A couple of outstanding beers, a couple I didn't care for and a real stinker. Mallinsons have never made a bad beer but the Acorn Old Moor Porter was the best.

    Elland - Best Bitter
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter
    Taylors - Golden Best
    Mallinsons - Pearle Amarillo
    Liverpool Craft - Icon
    Leeds - Pale
    Saltaire - Cascadian Black
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild
    Hop Studio - Porter
    Redemption - Big Chief
    York - Guzzler
    Pennine - Amber Necker

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

    Dreams of the old railwaymen
    Dark Star 1910 Porter at the Salehurst Halt. What a beer-sinuous, chewy,coffee 'n' chocolate and best leaf tea.The only draught beer drunk this week,but in line for BOTY.Epic.

    Reasonable week for me, but nothing that blew my socks off. Tried this week:

    Jarrow - McConnell's Irish Stout.
    Jarrow - JB Bitter.
    Raw - JR Best Bitter.
    Fernandes - Black Voodoo.
    Oakham - Attilla.
    Great Heck - Dispensible.
    Great Heck - Yakima IPA.
    Welbeck Abbey - Henrietta.
    Fernandes - Marynka.
    Saltaire - Hazelnut Coffee Porter.
    Ascot - Alley Cat Ale.

    My favourite was one with a comparatively low ABV - Henrietta 3.6%. A golden ale made with Challenger, Cascade and Hallertaur Brewer's Gold. A great session beer.
