    Not a hugely interesting week:

    Pennine Amber Necker
    Pennine Natural Gold
    Pennine Real Blonde
    Wold Top Bitter
    York Guzzler
    Tetleys Cask
    Rudgate Viking
    Rudgate Jorvik Blonde
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    Roosters White Rose
    Flying Dog Wildeman (bottle but in a pub)
    Holts Two Hoots
    Collingham Artisan
    Goose Eye Black Moor

    The Golden Pippin was very nice on a hot day in a pub overlooking sunny Nidderdale but an unexpected BOTW Holts Two Hoots

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

If you tried their Wild River and thought "I see what you're trying, but it's not quite there", then this one is pretty much spot on - up there with London Porter as the best Fuller's beer I've had on cask.
    Bugger. This was on in the Fernandes Tap over the weekend, but I didn't get round to trying it. As you say, the pump clip wasn't very helpful, so I put it to the bottom of the list. If I'd known it was Wild River with attitude, I'd probably have gone straight to it. Hopefully, it'll be on again soon.

    Almost inevitably, a bit of a comedown this week, after last week's blow-out.Tried the following:

    Shiny - Bank Vault.
    Rat - White Rat.
    Tigertops - Simply Simcoe.
    Hopback - Entire Stout.
    Fernandes - Simcoe.
    Rat - Rattus Rattus.
    Fernandes - Half Nelson.
    Saltaire - New World Red.
    Crouch Vale - Brewer's Gold.
    Fernandes - Nelson IPA.
    Burton - Bramble Stout.

    Very little between the two Simcoes and the IPA. However, I'll give Wakefield's smallest micro a pat on the back and go for the Tigertops.

    Lots of interesting beer in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy again this week.

    Nothing I tried there though beat Greenfield Silver Owl tried in The Baum.

    I'm not usually a great fan of Greenfield beers but this one is very good. Light and thirst quenching on a warm day and at 4% you can have a few.
