    Another good week for me with a day out in Cambridge :-

    Windsor And Eton Knight Of The Garter 3.8%
    Late Knights Hop O' The Morning 4.2%*
    Brain's SA 4.2%
    Lacon's Falcon 4.2%
    Moorhouse's Ice Witch 4.3%
    Brentwood BBC4 4.3%
    Hop Stuff Fusilier 4.3%
    Orkney Clootie Dumpling 4.3%
    Rooster's Yankee 4.3%*
    Woodforde Nelson's Revenge 4.6%*
    Rudgate Rudolph's Ruin 4.6%
    Milton Medusa 4.6%
    Greene King Rocking Rudolph 4.7%
    Lancaster Rum and Raisin 4.7%
    Brewster's Ho Ho Ho 4.8%*
    Portobello White 4.8%
    Burton Bridge Dam Dog 5.0%*
    Church End Fallen Angel 5.0%*
    Caledonian Minagof IPA 5.0%
    Arundel Old Scrooge 5.0%
    Saffron Silent Night 5.2%
    Milton Saturnalia 5.3%*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%*
    Wadworth's Full Sail Wassail 6.0%


    It was the final pint in Cambridge that wins out the Milton Saturnalia at £3.30 in the Devonshire Arms. It was so good I stopped for a second rather than attempting to fit in one more pub. It's a Xmas special apparently but I would call it a New World Pale.


    BOTW Milton Saturnalia

    A small but well formed selection:
    Hop Back Citra
    Burton Bridge Damson Porter*
    Kelham Island Fairytale of New York*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    The Bishops was excellent and slid down very easily as the Saints beat the Tigers.
    BOTW Burton Bridge Damson Porter. Not as good as Titanic Plum Porter, very little is, nonetheless the best beer I've tried from this brewery by quite some distance.
