    Suspect the Barnsley Bitter might have been brewed by Stancills. See here: http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/...beer-1-6458120

    That Infinity must be good stuff, Green Devil was my BOTY, last year.

    Middling week for me, unfortunately missing out on my Sunday afternoon wander round town.

    Rat - White Rat.*
    Potbelly - Captain Pigwash.*
    North Cotswold - Cotswold Best.
    Abbeydale - Absolution.
    Abbeydale - Redemption.
    Great Newsome - Jems Stout.
    Itchen Valley - Citra Hop.*
    Tigertops - New Wave IPA. *
    Five Towns - Niamhs Nemesis.*
    Hanlons - Copper Glow.
    Wentworth - Oyster Stout.*
    Rudgate - Brew No.7.
    Wentworth - Gold.
    Fernandes - Centaur.*

    Easy winner this week was the New Wave IPA, which was exactly what it said on the tin: a very hop forward IPA, with an incredible long finish. Another beauty from Tigertops. It's such a low key operation, that it's very difficult to find out any additional info about the beers.

    Rutland,Yorkshire,Lincolnshire:
    Grainstore -Ten Fifty: 5%abv-Old school malty bittersweet strong bitter.An actual and spiritual descendant of Ruddles County.
    Theakston-Lightfoot:4.1%abv-lightish goldenish bitter.Some pepper at the end.Too cold.
    Theakston-Old Peculier:5.65abv-dark and nourishing, but thinner than before.Too cold.
    Pennine (Bedale)-Best Bitter:3.9%abv. Described as Brown Ale on clip. Brownish, ardent, then mellowed to caramelised blackcurrants.
    Yorkshire Dales-Buttertubs:3.7%abv-pale and citrussy, gorse bushes yet very approacheable.
    Poachers-Shytalk Pale Ale:3.7%abv-insubstantial.Silly pump clip.
    My BOTW-Yorkshire Dales Buttertubs.Very approacheable and drinkable.Pushing 5 star. Taken at the wonderful Farmers Arms, Muker.

    Same brewery as last week for me Black Wolf, although this time it's going to be their ROK IPA.

    It's a cracking good beer, but at 4% it's probably not really an IPa whatever they choose to call it.
