    A long list due to a crawl of Leeds and a visit to a beer festival (which incidentally gave me BABOTW)

    Orkney Raven Ale
    Ossett Blonde
    Kirkstall Three Swords
    Ilkley Pale
    Thornbridge Wild Swan
    Ridgeside Snake Charmer
    Kirkstall Three Swords
    Tetley Bitter
    Hop Studio Zest
    Hop Studio Blonde
    Great Heck Mosaic
    Lytham Amber
    Crouch Vale Essex Boys
    Derby Triple Hop
    Derby Business As Usual
    Mallinsons Castle Hill
    Tiny Rebel Fubar
    Ilkley Gold

    the beer festival beers suffered from being too warm and some of the others weren't up to much either but BOTW is Ridgeside Snake Charmer drunk in the superb The Grove Inn

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

    Quality ale all the way up the Trent and Mersey and particularly on the Caldon Canal.

    Marstons -- Pedigree
    Everards -- Tiger
    Marble -- Pint
    Cheshire Brewhouse -- Engine Vein
    Belhaven -- St Andrews Ale
    Norton -- English Eleven
    Whim -- Flower Power
    Titanic -- Plumb Porter
    Titanic -- Iceberg
    Titanic -- White Star
    Moles -- Elmo's Fire
    Sharpe's -- Doom Bar

    Difficult choice but BOTW by a whisker was Titanic White Star in The Roebuck ,Leek.Smooth,well balanced best bitter which slipped down way too easily.

    Quiet week ahead,no bad thing.

    Light on beers this week -
    Darkstar - Hophead
    Brains - British summer
    Wild Weather - Sundowner
    Triple fff Moondance
    Portobello Pale
    and a fair amount of Westons Traditional Scrumpy, which doesn't count but was nevertheless very effective.
    BOTW is Wild Weather - Sundowner two in a row for Wild Weather.

    A good week for me after a slow start.

    Otter Bitter 3.6%
    Samuel Smith Old Brewery Bitter 3.8%
    Westerham Spirit Of Kent 4.2%
    Long Man Sussex Pride 4.5%
    Moorhouse's Blond Witch 4.5%
    Siren Undercurrent 4.5%
    Dark Star Genesis 4.7%
    East London Brewing Co Jamboree 4.8%
    Wantsum Black Pig 4.8%
    Brewster Calamity Jane 5.0%
    Shepherd Neame Bishop's Finger 5.0%
    WJ King Mallard 5.0%
    Coach House Blueberry Classic Bitter 5.0%
    Windsor And Eton Conqueror Black IPA 5.0%
    Exmoor Stag 5.2%
    Hopcraft Statement Of Intent 5.2%
    Hopcraft Spanish Main 5.5%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Brodie's Hackney Red 6.1%
    Brodie's Hackney Red (Keykeg) 6.1%
    Brodie's Kiwi IPA (Keykeg) 7.2%

    The contenders are Genesis, Conqueror, Black Pig and the two Hopcraft beers.

    I have to go for the Hopcraft Statement Of Intent, stronger very hoppy Golden Ales are something of a cliche, but this one really was excellent at £2.60 in the Leyton King William.

    I had an unusual opportunity to directly compare the cask and keg versions of Brodie's Hackney Red. I have to say that despite carbonation I preferred the keg. This was on a warm evening, on a freezing winter's day it may well be the opposite, but I have to say that Hackney Red and Dalston Black are well suited to keykeg dispense.

    Rather than drink new beers this week I stuck to previously drank beers.Mostly average but
    Sambrookes -Wandle was very good (I slagged them off a few weeks ago) but
    Fullers -Sticky Wicket was hoppy in an English sort of way and was beer of the week.

    This week's entire beer consumption was a solitary half of Ilkley Mary Jane. Unfortunately, it was so tired and flabby, I'm not even going to nominate it.

    This week:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Marstons Old Empire IPA
    Acorn Madness

    BOTW Acorn Madness. Pale, bitter and refreshing with plenty of flavour at 4.5%. And bought at the 'Spoons in Brum airport with a voucher. Joy.
