    Pathetic week with just three 'spoons festival ales in The George, Croydon.

    Vasileostrovsky - Siberian Red
    Mauldon's - Blackberry Porter
    Titanic - Molly Brown Ale =BOTW ,another winner from Burslem.


    Next week end of the month supping one evening in a refurbished Mc Mullens pub to be followed by Southampton Arms and possibly Pineapple,Kentish Town which should deliver several BOTW contenders.

    Only one very short session at the pub this week due to work so BOTW and actually well deserved is

    Acorn Old Moor Porter

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

    Thursday and Friday both spent at Tuckers Maltings beer festival with ensuing carnage.

    from th remains of my programme I'll nominate
    Quantock Nightjar 3.9%
    packed with flavour and well balanced NZ hops. Defo a 3 pinter.

    Honorable mentions to
    Milk Street Mermaid
    Yeovil Stout Hearted
    Quantock Wills Neck
    Bristol Beer Factory Acer

    plus others too many to mention hic!

    Decent week for me variety wise, but many of the Wetherspoon's festival beers were rather ho-hum. Tried this week:

    Marstons - PacificGem.
    Elgoods - Spring Gold.
    Woods - Twist Grip.
    Hilden - No.4.
    Everards - Malty Tasker.
    Batemans - Mocha.
    Fernandes - Jackdaw MILD.
    Fernandes - Nightjar.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.
    Rat - Black Rat.
    Ilkley - Black.
    Devil's Backbone - American Amber.
    Vasileostrovsky - Siberian Red.
    O'Hanlons - Red Ale.
    Rat - Bonkers American IPA.
    Dark Star - Art of Darkness.
    Downton - Rye Smile.
    Rat - Dirty Rat.

    With honorable mentions for the Siberian Red and Art Of Darkness, the clear winner was the Bonkers IPA, an apparent experimental brew from Rat. Wonderful tropical fruit nose, with a smooth but intense hoppy mouthfeel. Even at 6.5%, it absolutely slid down.*

    *Will, you would have absolutely hated it!

    A few to choose frpm this week :-


    Sharp's Doombar 4.0%
    Robinson's Hoptimus 4.1%
    Robinson's Unicorn Bitter 4.3%
    Cottage Duchess 4.2%
    Conwy Riptide 4.3%
    Conwy Cwrw Mêl 4.5%
    Robinson's Double Hop 4.8%
    Acorn Barnsley IPA 5.0%
    Hyde's Burnt Sienna 5.0%
    Brodie's Mosaic Pale 5.0%
    Brodie's Simcoe Pale 5.0%
    East London Quadrant Stout 5.8%
    Celt Experience Continental Drift 5.9%
    Brodie's Caramel Salt Brown 6.0%
    Wickwar Station Porter 6.0%
    Brodie's Dalston Black IPA (keykeg) 7.0%


    Of five possible contenders the Conwy Cwrw Mêl (aka Honey Fayre) just crosses the line in front. It easily passed the three pint test at the Ty Mawr in Llanbedr (£2.65 a pint). It's a golden beer with a honey flavour that isn't overpowering.

    By coincidence the Riptide from the same brewer at the Spoons George in Wanstead was also a contender.

    BOTW Conwy Cwrw Mêl
