    Average sort of week for me.

    Empire - Moonraker MILD.*
    Acorn - Forester.
    Marstons - Pedigree New World Pale.*
    Wychwood - Piledriver.
    Banks - Sunbeam.
    Prescott - Chequered Flag.
    Roosters - Wild Mule.*
    Tigertops - Orange Sun.
    Oakleaf - Texas Red.*
    Youngs - Hummingbird.
    Woodfordes - Royal Norfolks.

    With an honorable mention for the Texas Red, the easy winner was the Pedigree. I was expecting another dull but worthy beer from the Marstons stable, but was blown away by the flavour from the Topaz and Galaxy hops.You could have knocked me down with a feather. Excellent stuff.

    Not much of a week,but did shuffle a bit further along the Trent and Mersey to keep the right side of the mooring police

    Mc Mullens -- Cask
    Surrey Hills -- Shere Drop
    Tillingborne -- Hop Troll IPA
    Hydes -- Original Bitter
    Weetwood -- Best Bitter


    BOTW goes to Tillingborne Hop Troll IPA in The George,Croydon with a lot of hop action going on.

    Next week should be more substantial with two end-month events,one featuring some pubs around Hoxton which could result in some exciting new wave ale.

    Surely there are tractor parking spaces ?

    Went to the beer festival at the Velodrome in Manchester this week, not good.

    Only 4 beers out of 60 that I hadn't had and none of them came close to being BOTW.

    So the award is going to Dorking Gold, a pleasant 3.8% quaffing bitter.

    Just what I needed after 2 weeks of fizz in Italy.
