    Another pretty good week.

    Rudgate -- Ruby Mild
    Woodforde -- Wherry
    Caledonian -- Deuchars IPA
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord
    Sam Smith's -- Old Brewery Bitter
    Burning Sky -- Aurora
    Burning Sky -- Plateau
    Kent Brewery -- Cobnut
    Grain -- Best Bitter
    Moor -- Nor' Hop (unfined)
    Siren Song /Wychwood -- Session IPA
    Dark Star -- Revelation

    BOTW goes to Burning Sky Aurora,an exceptional APA in the Holborn Whippet,and just about pint of the year so far.


    Leamington,Knowle and Brum make up the next bit of boating and should deliver many contenders next week.

    Darkstar Hophead
    Darkstar American Pale Ale
    Cheddar Bitter Bully
    Cheddar Goats Leap IPA
    Charles Wells/Dogfish Head DNA BOTW, subtle yet full of flavour that stays the distance.

    Kent and Norfolk:
    Shepherd Neame-Early Bird 4.35abv. Hoppy, but with a metallic afternote.
    Harveys-Sussex Best Bitter 4%avb.Unimpeacheable.
    Adnams-Mosaic Pale ale 4.1%abv. Poor condition.Interesting tropical fruit flavours but a disassociation between hop and malt.Disappointing.
    Old Dairy-Spring Top 4%abv A really good Kentish Pale Ale. Peppery hops.
    Adnams-Oyster Stout 4.3%abv. A good dark'un,with that seaweedy tang that I don't often find in Adnams any more.
    Woodefords-Wherry. 3.8%abv. Old school bitter-earthy biscuits.
    Adnams-Southwold Bitter 3.7%abv. I often forget how much I like this;old fashioned bitter with an east coast tang.
    Very close call between the Oyster Stout and the Spring Top.Old Dairy Spring Top my BOTW

    A very quiet week, with just the four tried.

    Cottage - Mittlefruh.
    Copper Dragon - West Coast Pale.
    Bob's - Chardonnayle.
    Five Towns - Monster Mash.

    Easy winner was the MM.

    BOTW is going to be Rat Mother Rat tried in The Ashton Arms very dark and porterish.

    I had a pint of it and was most impressed and then tried a different beer that I hadn't had before.

    But I couldn't leave without having another half of the Mother Rat.
