    Decent enough week,quality ale,quality boating.

    Slater's -- Haka*
    Falstaff -- Fist Full of Hops*
    Marston's -- Pedigree
    Burton Old Cottage -- Halcyon Days*
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA (keg)
    Thornbridge -- Steelmaker*
    Sarah Hughes -- Dark Ruby Mild*
    Marston's (for AB InBev) -- Draught Bass*

    BOTW goes to Falstaff Fist Full of Hops well kept in The Plaza,Rugeley.It did exactly what it said on the pump clip.

    Next week might sneak in a crafty beer in St Albans otherwise it's prematch that will supply BOTW.

    A decent week boosted significantly by accompanying Mr. Fastard for some excellent boating on the T&M:
    Falstaff - A Fistful of Hops*
    Slaters - Haka
    Marstons - Pedigree
    Oak Cottage - Halcyon Daze*
    Thornbridge - Jaipur IPA keg
    Marstons - Bass*
    Thornbridge - Steelmaker*
    Abbeydale - Moonshine*
    Oakham - Bishops Farewell*

    As Mr F notes, the Fistful of Hops was very good but to avoid repetition and because it was also very good, BOTW goes to Thornbridge - Steelmaker. A typical Thornbridge ale, pale, zesty and very drinkable at 5%.

    Better week for me, after a couple of fairly low key ones.

    Partners - Ghost.
    Everards - Tiger.
    Rudgate - Brew No1. Vanilla Mild.*
    Dr Mortons - Proper Gander.
    Harthill - Hart of Yorkshire.
    Fernandes - Cascade Torrent.*
    Tigertops - Green Horn.
    North Riding - Nelson Sauvin.*
    Tigertops - Dark Age.*
    Geeves - Fully Laden IPA.
    Bowness Bay - Swan Blonde.
    Everards - Pumpkin Ale.

    Easy winner was the Dark Age, which I assume is a Black IPA. However, as with all Tigertops beers, it's virtually impossible to find any info on them. Still, another cracker from The Axeman.

    Just one stand-out beer for me in a fairly average week: Blackjack Flyer Best 4.8%, a surprisingly malty beer, considering it has the colour of a lager. The bitter finish, entirely derived from English hops (hooray!) seemed to get more and more bitter the more I drank. Excellent!

    The Big Rabbit-Black Annie 4.5 was truly outstanding. Drank in the Sussex Arms Twickenham.
