    Not a bad week :-

    Banks's Mild 3.5%
    Brakspear Bitter 3.4%
    Coach House Gunpowder Mild 3.8%
    Brentwood Hot XXX Buns 3.8%
    East London Brewing Company Pale 4.0%
    Banks's Cereal Thriller 4.0%
    Brakspear Oxford Gold 4.0%
    Mighty Oak Flying Inn 4.1%
    Maxim Swedish Blond 4.2%
    Theakston's Paradise 4.2%
    Hopcraft Naughty Boy 4.2%
    Shalford Stoneley Bitter 4.2%
    Brewster Hop A Doodle Doo 4.3%
    Brewster Decadence 4.4%
    Clouded Minds Hazelnutter 4.5%
    Elephant School Peasants' Revolt 4.6%
    Hopcraft Reign Of Terror 4.9%
    Wild Card Queen Of Diamonds IPA 5.0%
    Wadworth's / Fat Head's Rocket Man 5.2%
    Brentwood Lumberjack 5.2%
    Banks's Saint Archer Pale Ale 5.5%
    Fuller's ESB 5.5%
    Celt Experience Bleddyn 1075 5.6%

    The easy winner is the Celt Experience Bleddyn 1075 at £2.35 in the E4 King's Ford. It was another pale beer with tons of New World hops. I wonder if anyone in Wales actually drinks stuff like this and the Hopcraft beers. In my experience they don't drink anything more than around 4.3% but lots and lots and lots of it.
    At the other end of the list the Banks's Mild was a creditable second and was as good as I've ever tasted it.

    Some decent beer this week
    Darkstar - Hophead 3.8%
    Wild Weather - Sundowner 3.4%
    Cheddar - Gorge Best 4.0%
    Cheddar - Potholer 4.3%
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord 4.3%

    Art Brew - Earth Roots Resin 6.0%
    Raw - Dark Peak Stout 4.5%

    This weeks winner isTillingbourne - Evolution No.4 a very refreshing hop bomb of a beer, just beating off the challenge of Art Brews Strange, but interesting and not unpleasant Earth Root Resin.

    A very quiet week with just Oakham Bishops Farewell drunk on draught.

    One or two decent bottle conditioned ales slipped down though with BOTW Titanic Iceberg going down the easiest. At 4.1% this really is an exceptional thirst quencher.

    Roosters - The Italian Job
    Rudgate - Brew #4
    Ossett - Majestic Mild
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter
    Clarke's - Classic Blonde
    Riverhead - Lavender Blonde
    Wolf - Woild Moild
    Ossett - Big Red
    Treboom - Yorkshire Sparkle
    Roosters - Nectar

    I thought it would be one of the dark beers as they were all excellent but having visited the Boltmakers on Saturday it has to be Taylors Golden Best

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