    It will need to be very very good to beat Jaipur, I've just had a bottle and it continues to impress even though I've moved on to Westmalle at 9.5%.

    My BOTW this week is going to be Wentworth WPA, a fine South Yorkshire hoppy ale served to me by a sexy Barnsley lass on Tuesday in a super village pub, ain't life grand?

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    I've been abroad most of this week, but I did manage to get to the Cardinal in Stavanger, one of the best pubs in Europe in my opinion. It's more English than a lot of pubs in England, even down to the dartboard and has about 100 (I didn't bother to count) British beers (bottled, of course). So, my BOTW is Innis & Gunn Oak Aged bitter from a bottle (saw off a few of those on Wednesday).

    As I suspected, there was nothing to beat it so this week my BotW is Thornbridge Jaipur IPA

    An East Kent double, between Hopdaemon's Skrimshander IPA and Shep's Eary Bird. The Early Bird is wonderfully springlike and spicy, but on the whole I preferred the Skrim with its extra depth of graineyness from the malt.

    Not too much for me this week, but I had a nice Rare Hare with my lunch at the pub today.

    I thought that was the start of a 'Waiter, waiter there's a hair in my soup" joke

    Not the greatest beer week. The Brewster Ice Queen I had tonight in the Paper Moon, Dartford was quite good and White's Hoppy Easter in the Market Porter at London Bridge deserves a mention but I think I will stick with the Cairngorm, Trade Winds as my BotW at the Rake at London Bridge.

    A couple of years ago whilst out and about in Bristle we called in a Bath Ales pub selling this very beer. Ms CAMRA suggested that I should order it in my full blown Lancashire accent without any attempt at the posh Baaaath pronunciation.

    "A pint of Rur Ur please" was the result, as was a blank look from the barmaid.

    This weeks BOTW is going to be Acorn Moor Porter. I've always liked this beer and it was on top form in the Regal Moon on Saturday.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas
