    Lots of consumption but the week impacted by dodgy stomach affecting tastebuds so BOTW more an impression than anything else.


    Dark Star -- Skinners Pale Ale
    Sharp's -- Special
    Sharp's -- Atlantic IPA
    Long Man -- Golden Tipple *
    Otley -- Amarillo
    Dark Star -- American Pale Ale *
    Firebrand -- Graffiti IPA
    Mallinson's -- US MILD*
    Red Ink -- 100 *
    Buxton -- Rednik Stout
    Arbor -- Blue Sky Drinking
    Bristol Beer Factory -- Nova


    BOTW goes to Red Ink 100,a decent porter from a new micro recently set up in Wellington,Somerset. Sampled on the excellent PuG crawl in the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer.

    BOTW Abbeydale Temptation.
    The only cask ale tried and a boring brown beer but a very fine one. If all BBBs were like this then they may not have the reputation they do.

    Kingstone 1503 Tudor Ale 4.8%
    Tiny Rebel The Full Nelson 4.8%
    Sky's Edge Rum Cask Stout 4.8%

    Abbeydale Absolution 5.3%
    Backyard Hellbound 5.4%


    There are so many really good beers in this lot that makes this is quite a task but it comes down between Otley O2 Croeso and the new Spoons American beer from Everards. The Otley O2 Croeso edges it although why a brewery in Pontypridd should be named after a Yorkshire town is anyone's guess. It was in superb nick for £3.20 at the local borough Social Club's Wales and Borders beer festival.

    BOTW Otley O2 Croeso

    I wonder if the fact that the head brewer's name is Charlie Otley has something to do with it?

    Sadly, no beer for me this week.
