    Sounds a bit of a 'Marmite' beer!

    it's dark an smooth but it's not to my mind a mild, it's too highly hopped with new world hops so I think the brewery description is a bit off. Lovely beer to my taste though so I'd better try some more to make sure .

    A few sampled this week at The Merchants semi-annual beer festival including:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell 4.6%
    Tryst Carronade IPA 4.2%
    Victory Thick as Thieves 6.8%
    Rooster Fort Smith 5%
    Blue Monkey Guerilla Stout 4.9%
    Acorn St George's Best 4.6%

    All were very good but I think Roosters Fort Smith just nudges it as BOTW. A typical Roosters beer, pale and hoppy but with that bit extra punch.

    It means nothing to me putting my oar in with this debate. I agree that it's not a mild but a dark bitter. To me it's like a lower ABV version of my two local brews, Redemption Urban Dusk and ELB Nightwatchman.

    Unfortunately missed it at the 'spoons fest, but as it's a proper Leeds seasonal might just catch it at the Midnight Bell, or Brewery Tap.

    The first beer I had in the York Tap, on Tuesday afternoon. Lovely stuff.

    I really wish I hadn't thought that this was a great beer.

    It's from Arkwrights (claiming to be The Very Silly Brewing Company) and is named after a Monty Python sketch featuring Michael Palin as Tarquin...................

    Light, hoppy, very moreish and 3.9%. It passed the 3 pint test easily in The Baum on a Tuesday night.

    Well at least Tarquin managed to get elected in Luton unlike Kevin Philips Bong who polled zero votes on the night but strangely scored a cracker today .

    Finally managed to try Vienna in The Midnight Bell, on Saturday. After two pints, I still couldn't make up my mind about it. Just didn't get a lot from it, to be honest. Maybe it was a little tired?
