    Poor week for me. With all the beautiful weather over the weekend, only managed to snatch an hour in the pub, on Saturday evening.

    Riverhead - Lavender Blonde.
    Fullers - Wild River.
    Arbor - Monsoon Saison.
    Raw - Black Cherry Stout.

    The Wild River was the pick of the bunch, but even then was end of barrel-ish. Not my finest week.

    The Genie is out of the bottle now with the explosion of new breweries in London, so I will never feel the need to ever visit a pub selling boring (although it might still be crap as I discovered on Friday!) beer ever again.
    I only had Gk -ipa as I wanted to see the British Lions thrash Australia and there are only a few pubs in Fulham with Sky..So it was that or golden hen.

    Some good beer last week:
    Wye Valley HPA
    Dancing Duck Amberillo
    Firestone Walker (brewed by Adnams) - American Independence Day Pale Ale
    Downton Nelsons Delight
    Hopback Summer Lightening

    The American Independence Day PA was excellent, as BF has mentioned, and was possibly the best beer I've tried from Adnams. Mentions also for the Amberillo and ever excellent Summer Lightening. BOTW Downton Brewery Nelson's Delight. Another from the Hopback stable. Light amber, bitter and refreshing, apparently dark rum is used in its brewing but, on a hot day, my three pints perhaps went down too swiftly for me to notice this.

    Much prefer your list, this week. Can we swap? Think you should name the two mingers.
