    Holden's Aging Bull
    Hilegard's Solange
    Caledonian Port Leith IPA
    Oakham Citra, Bishops Farewell
    Wood Farm Grand Slam

    BOTW, to my surprise, is Caledonian Port Leith IPA. Looks a boring brown beer but is a much better IPA at 5% than the other one which Caledonian do.

    After two very quiet weeks, it was great to squeeze in several sessions and have some very good beers.

    Hilden - Nut Brown.
    Standeaven - African Pale Ale.
    Elland - Red River IPA.*
    Rat - White Rat.*
    Rat - Ratty Belafonte.
    Five Towns - Outwood Gold.
    Tigertops - Black Hop Stout.*
    Mallinsons - Amarillo.
    Saltaire - Raspberry Blonde.
    Castle Rock - Harvest Pale.
    Clarks - Heroes.
    Five Towns - Niamhs Nemesis.*
    Partners - Triple Hop.
    Rat - Rata Nui.*
    Elland - Lambi.
    Hopback - Spring Zing.
    Moles - Mole Catcher.
    Ilkley - Black.*
    Moorhouses - Pride of Pendle.

    Barely a cigarette paper between the Red River, Black Hop Stout and Rata Nui, but for sheer drinkability the former has it. A lovely hop forward IPA, but with a juicy malt base offering great balance.

    Tigertops is Wakefield's Cinderella micro, almost certainly the least well known of the city's breweries. However, as a one man operation, Barry 'Axeman' Smith is certainly churning out some beautiful beers at the moment. Black Hop Stout was my runner up this week and his Hop Rain was BOTW w/e 16th Feb. There's usually a Tigertops beer on at Harry's Bar, so if you're still on for a trip north in July 'BF', I'll have to take you there.

    Just sorting out the dates ,but the good ship plus crew will be in Wakefield in early July ,so that's a very kind offer that will be certainly taken up.Two other drinkers who were with me in The Craven Arms but dont review on this site also voted Tigertops Duel as their beer of the weekend against some strong competition.May the Axeman continue churning.

    Wilson Potter Don't Fall tried at Oldham Beer Festival. A pale hoppy blonde beer with lots of flavour at 3.9%

    It was also Ms CAMRA's BOTW as well.
