    A rather short list,
    Darkstar Hophead 3.8%
    Fullers London Pride 4.1%
    Gales HSB 4.8%
    Wells and Youngs London Gold 4.0%
    Vibrant Forest Cydonia 4.7%

    Not many beers but this belies the quantity's involved, over the week Hophead was average to good and back again, Pride although a usual suspect and a boring brown beer, is in my opinion toward the top end of that particular category, London Gold was as bland as expected, HSB is consistent, BOTW easily is the Cydonia ,very good beer indeed with wonderful fruity hop flavours throughout .

    A small selection this week and all tried in Spoons :-

    Dark Star Hophead 3.8%
    Truman's Eyrie 4.3%
    Twickenham Gothick Dark 4.6%
    Sambrook's Four Chimneys Chocolate Stout 4.7%
    Portobello APA 5.0%
    Southwark Gold 5.2%
    Cronx Mad-Ass Entire Chilli Porter 5.2%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%
    Adnam's Rogue Brutal IPA 6.0%

    I'm going for the Twickenham Gothick Dark which I thought was like a dark bitter along the lines of ELB Nightwatchman.
    I liked the big chilli hit in the Cronx Entire but that may make it other people's BABOTW.

    BOTW Twickenham Gothick Dark

    At the risk of shifting my Lupulin Threshold: BOTW Oakham Bishops Farewell as the only beer had.

    Very limited consumption due to antibiotics being required so by default BOTW goes to

    Mighty Oak --- Maldon Gold with decent bitterness in The Old Ship,Heybridge Basin

    Next week might venture in a couple of canalside GK pubs to see if there are any decent guests.The things I do for PuG

    Belhaven is part of the Greene King Empire. It's the only brewery they didn't close down after taking it over.
