    Well as stated last week its been all work and little play and as such have sampled only two different beers this week, although both have passed the three pint test several times over.
    Darkstar Hophead, has been on form this week, good news as I have found the quality to be a little erratic of late.
    Dark star Six Hop this months special and an outstanding beer, easily punching its weight at 6.5%, you feel you could drink it all day, but you cant.
    BOTW and well in the running for a top 5 place for 2014, although at this early stage the competition is intense. Beer seems to be getting better and better.

    Fool Hardy Ales - Risky Blond sampled in this pub The Hope Inn

    A great addition to Stockport - every ale I tried was excellent.

    With a session at Egham and a trip to London this week I had plenty to choose from.Egham beers were very good which is not always the case with so many new brewers
    red cat -bitter
    round tower -stout
    hoptimist -glass half full
    weltons -blackcurrent mild (again)
    titanic -cherry dark
    c +fredricks -special bitter
    but the outstanding beer was
    Highland -muckle ipa but at £3.50 a half on keg at the Well and Bucket I wouldn't have bought it if I had known the price beforehand

    Reasonable variety, this week, but the majority were rather ho-hum, for one reason or another.

    Banks - Sunbeam.
    Marstons - Old Empire.
    Salamander - Make my Day.*
    Elland - Eden.
    Titanic - Cappuccino.
    Great Newsome - Ploughmans Pride.
    Bridestones - Sandstone.
    Westgates - Ale Fresco.
    Moorhouses - Pride of Pendle.
    Bob's - White Lion.
    Fernandes - American Pale.*
    Fernandes - Cascade Torrent.
    Titanic - Iron Curtain.
    Nelson - Friggin in the Riggin.
    Fernandes - Straw Dog.
    Ilkley - Black.*

    Pick of the bunch was the American Pale, a very sessionable APA.

    Speak for yourself! I'm finding it very hard to compile a list for BOTY: only one beer has scored 5 so far, and perhaps out of desperation, though in truth I did enjoy it.(Black Cat Original.)

    Another quiet week with just Cotswold Lion Golden Fleece IPA and Oakham Bishops Farewell on cask.
    A couple of decent bottles though and it's a bottle conditioned beer that takes the prize.
    BOTW Hart Porter. Packs an almighty flavour punch at 6.4% and is the best porter I've had.
