    Camden Gentleman's Wit is a terrific interpretation of a Belgian style wheat beer and easily wins the prize for me.

    I thought a Spoonsfest beer may win this week, but it got pushed out.

    Wharfebank Spring Hop 4.3%
    Corfu Ionian Coffee Porter 4.5%
    Titanic Molly Brown Ale 4.6%
    Devil's Backbone American Amber 4.8%
    Nethergate Bowler 5.0%
    Brodie's Mosaic Pale 5.0%
    Deschutes Twilight Pale Ale 5.0%
    Siren Soundwave 5.6%
    Siren Liquid Mistress 5.8%
    Bateman's Mocha 6.0%
    Brodie's Caramel Salt Brown 6.0%
    Brodie's Saki IPA (keykeg) 8.0%

    The Bateman's Mocha was odds-on to win until I tried the Siren Liquid Mistress which was a superb dark red ale at £2.60 in the Leyton King William IV. The Saki IPA came close to making it into the BABOTW thread as it was proper keg gassy and had absolutely no redeeming qualities other than the high ABV.

    some good ones this week

    Red Rider IPA
    Kirkstall Three Swords
    Black Sheep Bitter
    Marstons Pacific Gem

    Bradfield Farmers Stout
    Roosters True Grit

    My BOTW is Ilkley's take on Tetleys Bitter (alledgedly) Joshua Jane, brown in colour but with lots of hops.

    Fyne -life of Ryely was lovely from a brewer who never disappoints.
