    Me first then?

    Hunny Bunny, had it first time today in the newly re-opened Victory on the Hard at Portsmouth. The name was a bit off putting, but it was a very nice pint, light golden. This initial taste was a bit sharp, but it certainly grew on me, and if I had not got a bus to catch another would have gone down a treat. From same stable as Betty Stogs

    One for me to look out for on my Cornish visit

    http://www.skinnersbrewery.com/shop/beers some cracking beer names there as well

    Thought it might be a Skinners Easter offering, but we had it in Truro Spoons in June last year so you might be lucky.

    All I have had this week so far is an iffy Pedigree with my carvery dinner today. An eatery rather than a pub, so it is NOT my BOTW.

    Will get round Birmingham centre tomorrow so should find something.

    Had a rather pleasant little pub crawl through Sowerby Bridge yesterday.

    Excellent beer in 4 of the 5 pubs visited. BOTW is already a difficult choice and it's only Tuesday.

    Bardia from Newby Wyke tried at the famous Puzzle Hall Inn is leading so far.

    With the 'Spoons Fest starting this week (and already started for some of us) there should be some quite interesting BotW's coming up, especially since most of us will have a chance of sampling them at some stage - could be a few arguments coming up! I also have the Bexley Beer Festival this Thursday so I don't think I will be short of nominations this week.

    The Jarrow Brewery’s Rivet Catcher is an early contender.

    Not seen much from this brewery but had a good pint of their McConnells Irish Stout over Easter.

    Ooopps! Completely forgetten about this thread

    Anyway BOTW goes to... Zulu's Blonde Ale at Silk Kite. Very pleasant blonde ale which I don't normally drink but Zulu is really refreshing beer and delightful finish.

    Iím not going for a JDW festival beer this week, I canít say Iíve found anything outstanding yet anyway.

    I did however find an interesting beer in the Old Fountain at Old Street. It was Dark Star Saison, described on the clip as a Belgian-Style Farmhouse Ale, very tasty and, at only 4.5%, very drinkable. You donít see many English brewers attempting a Saison so well done to Dark Star.
