    Portobello Pale

    Best beer this week has been the Hophead, expecting more variety and challengers next week with a trip to London on Saturday.

    Lichfield and a crawl around Oxford,somehow missing Oggy and Mrs Oggy judging by the reviews,led to a high rate of consumption.


    Marston's - Pedigree
    TT - Landlord
    Backyard -Gold
    Titanic - Pier 54
    Shotover - Prospect
    Vale - Black Beauty
    Skinners - Betty Stogs
    Brew Co. -Bitter
    Beowulf -English Norseman
    Sadlers -Elementis
    White Horse -Village Idiot

    Oxford didnt produce anything really outstanding and there was only ever going to be one winner of BOTW,Titanic Pier 54 an unexpected bonus for doing a walk through in The Gatehouse,a 'spoons in Lichfield.Dark brown with lots of malt on the nose and a beautifully balanced Titanic bitter finish,it whistled down for a 5.4%er.Another outstanding ale from Burslem ,and I suspect there will be another nomination coming along soon

    Another modest selection this week :-

    Otter Amber 4.0%
    Welton's Old Cocky 4.3%
    Adnam's Ghost Ship 4.5%
    Welton's Sun Oak Clog 4.6%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%
    Ringwood Old Thumper 5.6%
    Brentwood Chockwork Orange 6.5%
    Brodie's Dalston Black IPA (Keykeg) 7.0%
    Brodie's Big Mofo Stout (Keykeg) 10.5%

    The winner is the weakest one, Otter Amber in great condition for £2.15 in the King's Ford. It's a pale orange beer with a superb hop flavour.

    BOTW Otter Amber

    Beer at a food fair:
    Nelson-Dragon's Revenge 4.3%abv. Not one of my favourite Kent micros, but this was a serviceable Best;good malt with a bittersweet finish.
    Old Dairy-Sun Top 3.8%abv.It made the sun shine for about thirty seconds! A good, session worthy hoppy pale ale. My BOTW.
