    Good week,mix of styles.


    Cruiser -- Atlantic Pale Ale (keg)
    Triple fff -- Moondance*
    Nethergate -- Black Shadow
    Nethergate -- Gangly Goul
    Late Knights -- Full Moon
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell *
    Oakham -- Citra * (>3PT)


    BOTW goes to Oakham Citra which proved to be the perfect session beer in Oaka @The Mansion House.Just how many went down was anyones guess.


    Next week remnants of the 'spoons festival then back to Loughborough with stops in Leicester and the surrounding canalside pubs.Should be very good.

    Tried a lot of good beers on a visit to Lancashire this week, there were some excellent ones, but a brewery new to me from Burnley gets BOTW, one was better than the other, but this one topped them all

    A good week for me with the ongoing Spoons fest, a flying visit to the Leyton Orient fest and a visit to the West Midlands.

    Enville Ginger 4.0%
    Black Sheep Reaper 4.1%
    Greene King Old Golden Hen 4.2%
    Innis & Gun Edinburgh Pale Ale 4.2%
    White Horse Camarillo 4.5%
    Craddock's Crazy Sheep 4.5%
    Maxim The Simcoe Kid 4.7%
    Sadler's Hop Bomb 5.0%
    Wadworth 10 Barrel OG IPA 5.0%
    Titanic Hop Abroad 5.0%
    Wadworth Heather and Honey 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Craddock's Troll 5.4%
    Adnam's Sixpoint Brooklyn Bitter 5.5%
    Caledonian Trojan Horse 5.5%
    Brewster's Brewers Dozen 5.5%
    Ilkley Green Rose 5.6%
    Brighton Bier Fatboy Stout 5.8%
    Revolutions Demonstration Number 8 6.0%
    Late Knights Hairy Dog 6.0%
    Sadler's Mud City Stout 6.6%
    Bateman's Wicked Weed Freak Of Nature 7.5%

    The two Sadler's beers tried at the Windsor Castle in Lye were outstanding, but I'll go for the Mud City Stout (£3.70). I thought that the Tap East Sixpence Stout must be the ultimate strong stout but now I really couldn't say.

    BOTW Sadler's Mud City Stout

    These were all decent
    brains -café phoenix
    brodies -mosaic
    siren -driftwood
    hopcraft -belma and brewise
    wild beer -scarlet fever
    and would like to say Roosters are brewing some top beers
    roosters -allstars was hoppy and sessionable
    but sometimes a beer that you wouldn't drink loads of hits the spot
    BOTW was Kissingate-Undertakers Varnish 7.0

    This week's entire consumption was in the pleasurable company of 'trainman' and his South London posse, on Saturday, during a crawl of Wakefield and Horbury's finest.

    Riverhead - Marz[d]en.*
    Raw - Anubis.*
    Ossett - Silver King.
    Great Heck - Nelson Simcoe.*
    Great Heck - Voodoo Mild.*
    Captain Cook - Resolution.
    Old Mill - Blonde Bombshell.
    Empire - Galaxy Amarillo.*
    Durham - Black Velvet.
    Clarks - Classic Blonde.
    Old Mill - Yorkshire Porter.*
    Phoenix - Wobbly Bob.
    Ramsbury - Kennet Valley.*
    Revolutions - Go Go.
    Ilkley - Green Rose.

    Several contenders in there, but the Nelson Simcoe was as fresh as a daisy and utterly delicious.

    Norfolk:
    Humpty Dumpty-Little Sharpie 3.8%abv:Straw coloured session beer. Long bitter finish, reedy hops.
    Adnams-Ghost Ship 4.5%abv:On gravity dispense from a firkin on the bar.Good touch of the East Wind with this pale 'un.
    I've been a fan of Adnams since top-pressure dispense in the student bar days.GS seems the pickof the bunch, though I have a lingering fondness for their old ale. I haven't tried any of their more crafty beers yet. Both taken at the Ferry House, Surlingham.
