    An odd one this week, from a brewery whose beers don't normally appeal to me but Hambleton Nutty Native was most unlike their usual stuff. In spite of the name it's not a MILD, pale-ish with a touch of sweetness but with hints of New World hopping - interesting. Drinking the first pint out a new barrel in their excellent brewery tap helped of course.

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

    It was very good so it appeared to be good value.Less so a bottle of Sam Smiths Organic Choc Stout £5.50 in Cittie of York which really hurt.

    This week:
    Pedigree
    Banks Black Diamond
    Joules Pale Ale
    Marstons Shipyard Double Thumper
    Salopian Hop Twister
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    The Joules Pale Ale was ok for one but comprehensively failed the 3 pint test despite a lack of choice and my best efforts.
    The Salopian Hop Twister, by contrast, sailed through the 3 pint test and was excellent.
    I can't get past the Marstons Shipyard Double Thumper for BOTW though despite Mr Fastard having nominated it earlier. An excellent pint and the best I've had from Marstons since the original 4.8% Pedihree on tip top form before they changed the recipe.

    Despite being at the CAMRA Champion Beer Of Britain lunch and trying all the CBOB I'm not going to choose one from there.

    I'm not going to choose one from The Baum either.

    And I'm not going to choose one from Burton's myriad of GBG2014 listed pubs.

    The best pint I had last week was Long Man APA at The Dial

    I don't know whether it was because we'd just called in to get Ms CAMRA a nice glass of red wine and I was expecting to drink fizz.

    But it was the best tasting beer I had in a weekend filled with great ones.

    I wasn't sure about matching Elland 1872 Porter with a cheeseboard, but it worked well.

    Fyne Jarl matched with ham hock terrine also worked really well.

    But a beer in a wine bar still won it.

    Too many to chose from, but the Batham's Bitter in the Vine and Griffin were Sublime, as was the Batham's MILD in the Vine, the Holden's MILD in the Rose & Crown. Fantastic week for me, but then, that is what birthdays are for!
