    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!

    Quite a big week for me.

    Fullers -- Wild River
    Sunny Republic -- Shark Head
    Butcombe -- Great Grey Owl
    Thornbridge -- Roc Fall
    Bristol Beer Factory -- Milk Stout
    Kernel -- Pale Ale,Mosaic Chinook (keg)
    St Austell -- Tribute
    Clarence & Fredericks -- Best
    Oakham -- Inferno
    Oakham -- Tranquility
    Dark Star -- Hophead


    Some very decent pints ,the best of which was Fullers Wild River ,which sailed past the three pint test in The White Horse,Hertford.

    Looking forward to some top ale on a boat trip on the Trent & Mersey,Shropshire Union,Llangollen and Montgomery Canals spanning the next two weeks.Looking for both quality and quantity

    Some nice ones this week :-

    East London Brewing Co Orchid Mild 3.6%
    Milestone Loxley Ale 4.2%
    Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale 4.2%
    Westerham Brewery British Bulldog 4.2%
    Warwickshire Churchyard Bob 4.9%
    By The Horns Diamond Geezer 4.9%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%
    Rooster's Fort Smith 5.0%
    Mickeller Big Worster (Keykeg) 18.9%


    The choice is between Fort Smith, Loxley, Old Street and the Big Worster.
    The Big Worster was something else, it tasted like a barley wine of around 9-10% rather than 19%. The Fort Smith is another American style IPA. I'm going for the Loxley simply because it was served in immaculate condition in the E4 King's Ford for only £1.99, less than a third of the cost of the pint of Big Worster. It's a golden ale with a good flavour for the ABV, no gimmicks other than the hops are newer English varieties. Sometimes it's nice to go back to basics!


    BOTW Milestone Loxley Ale
