    Decent enough week,although the 'spoons festival ales started brilliantly but then came up very short.

    Titanic -- Cappuccino
    Innis & Gunn -- Toasted Oak IPA
    Thwaites -- Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA
    Oakham --Inferno
    Mc Mullens -- Country Bitter
    Oakham -- Citra
    Oakham -- Scarlet McCaw
    Oakham -- Black Hole Porter
    Caledonian -- Ninkasi Cream Ale
    Batemans -- Fat Heads Sunshine Daydream
    Dark Star -- Green Hopped IPA
    Oakham -- Green Devil IPA


    The last two were the stars of the show (although the Oakham Citra went well beyond the three pint test )
    In a drink off at The George,Croydon I had a pint of each before deciding to make the third another Dark Star Green Hopped IPA a worthy BOTW and in the running for Beer of the Year.What a brew,and using exclusively English hops.A lot of long established family brewers please note.

    A rather slim week quantity wise
    Black Sheep Best
    Black Sheep Ruddy Ram
    Wild Weather Dark Prince
    Titanic Cappuccino
    Darkstar Greenhopped IPA
    The Titanic was good but BOTW and three in a row comfortably is the Greenhopped IPA

    Another good week courtesy of the Spoons fest :-

    Traditional Scottish Ales ROK IPA 4.0%
    Evan Evans Organic Gold 4.2%*
    Cotleigh Lemon Ale 4.3%*
    Liberation EPA 4.4%
    Mordue Oatmeal Stout 4.5%*
    Strathaven Claverhouse 4.5%*
    Titanic Cappuccino 4.5%*
    Hopcraft Bikini Attol 4.5%
    White Horse Cheval Blanc 4.7%
    Adnams Barley Mow 5.0%
    Vale Misty Mountain Hop 5.0%
    Adnams Stone Supremely Self-Conscious Black IPA 5.0%*
    Bateman's Fathead's Sunshine Daydream 5.0%
    Shepherd Neame Terrapin Tree Hugger IPA 5.0%*

    The starred ones were the best but I will have to go for the Mordue Oatmeal Stout for £2.49 in the Wibbas Down as I don't like repeating the winner.

    Having had a couple of Green Hopped IPAs this month I can understand why you would repeat it, especially in a quiet week. There were several contenders for me, but the Oatmeal Stout really was very good. I'm hoping to catch the Adnam's / Stone Black IPA again in the last week of the festival, hopefully in E4 where it's only £1.99!

    Quiet one again.

    Cask:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    Bottled:
    Oakham Citra
    Odell's Cutthroat Porter
    Hart Green Hop
    Dow Bridge Praetorian Porter

    All were very good and the Hart Green Hop really doesn't disappoint but because it's the best bottled porter I've tried, BOTW is Dow Bridge Praetorian Porter.
