    Hopback- GFB
    Hopback - Cropcircle
    Hopback - Summer Lightning
    Adnams - Ghost Ship
    Gales - Spring Sprinter
    Darkstar - Hophead
    Darkstar - American Pale Ale

    The Cropcircle was the finest Iv'e tasted in a while , very enjoyable, it's flavours are subtle and an all time favourite of mine, but it doesn't pack the flavour punch of the the Darkstar beers both of which were in excellent shape, both are winners but I will lean toward theAmerican Pale Ale as my BOTW.

    In the end managed to get a few beers in ,and from a small sample BOTW was Hopback Spring Zing in good condition in The Ship,Holborn but it needed to be for £4 a pint

    Boating in Welford and Market Harborough this week but I am assuming that Leicester will throw up the BOTW.

    I do like the Ship, Holborn, but £4.00 is getting on the steep side, hope the beers a bit cheaper Friday.

    Some good ones this week :-

    East London Brewing Co Orchid Mild 3.6%
    Salopian Oracle 4.0%
    Adnam's Kristal White 4.2%
    Adnam's (Spoons) Irish Red 4.5%
    Dorset Yachtsman 4.7%
    Titanic Captain Smith 5.2%
    Siren Sound Wave IPA 5.6%
    Brodie's Caramel Salt Brown 6.0%
    Brodie's Mocha Milk Stout (keykeg) 9.0%

    It's a choice between the ELB mild, the Salopian Oracle and the two new Brodie's beers being given an outing before the Easter Festival. I have to go for the Salopian Oracle as it was a real hop bomb at £2.09 in the King's Ford in Chingford.
    I see from the tasting notes that this brew includes Cascade hops which has provoked some discussion recently. The fact that it included three other hops meant that it was a pale very easy drinking beer.

    BOTW Salopian Oracle

    Virtually an Oakham full house this week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Oakham Random Rabbit
    Oakham The Mercenary
    North Cotswold Winter Solstice

    All the Oakham beers were excellent and the Winter Solstice probably suffered in comparison. BOTW Oakham The Mercenary very hoppy and at 4.9% alarmingly dangerous.
