    Mile Tree Strawberry Blonde 5.5% superb.

    We are on the caravan site where the brewery is, and it was so fantastic we got a 4 pint container of it. The bottle conditioned version is 4.5% but we will be taking them home.

    Don't think I will get anything better this week.

    This week:
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold
    Andwell Red IPA
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    Gales Seafarers, HSB
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    Not a bad selection at all and I'd forgotten quite how good Golden Pippin is. BOTW was Flowerpots Goodens Gold, pale, hoppy and delicious at 4.8%. A good beer from the south shock!

    A pretty easy choice of brewery just which of their IPAs?

    Durham Guide me Home
    Ilkley Everest
    Daleside Blonde
    Brains British Summer
    Leeds Pale
    Hambleton Steeple Stuff
    Ilkley Joshua Jane
    Marstons Jennings Cumberland Ale
    Thwaites Wainwright
    Rudgate Blonde
    Nine Standards Silver Standard
    Ilkley Mary Jane
    Walls Gundog Bitter
    Kirkstall Dissolution IPA
    Daleside Old Leg Over
    Okells Steam Beer
    Kirkstall Three Swords
    Copper Dragon Golden Pippin
    Hambleton Herriott Ale

    This time it's the weaker one Kirkstall Three Swords

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

    Very quiet week for me, with just one beer tried. However, the Tour de Yorkshire Dales, brewed by the Yorkshire Dales Brew Co, was in superb nick at the George Inn, Hubberholme. After a good walk in the surrounding Wharfedale countryside, it really hit the spot.

    Despite a couple of days in Sheffield last week my BOTW wasn't tried there although it was brewed there.

    Kelham Island King Of The Rocket Men it was the top selling seasonal last year, so they've brewed it again this year.

    That was a very good decision as it was excellent when tried in The Baum.
