    An excellent week, not surprisingly dominated by the wander round York.

    Loddon - Bamboozle.
    Mallinsons - Calypso.
    Moorhouses - Black Witch.*
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild.
    Oakham - Bishops Farewell.*
    Salamander - Divine Retribution.
    Bristol Beer Factory - Sorachi.
    Junction 33 - Hop Monster.*
    Roosters - Yankee.
    Slaters - Smoked Porter.
    Junction 33 - Thirst Aid.*
    Half Moon - Hull Moon.
    Revolutions - Debaser.*
    Great Heck - Treason Stout.
    Roosters - Forty One Degrees South.
    Dark Star - Hophead.*
    Oakham - Citra.*
    Great Newsome - Hops in the Spring.
    Revolutions - House of Fun.
    Half Moon - Stellar Oatois.
    Half Moon - Dark Masquerade.*
    Wold Top - Wold Gold.
    Liverpool Organic - Quokkar.
    Treboom - Yorkshire Sparkle.
    Little Brew - Porter.
    Atom - Blonde.
    Saltaire. Blonde.
    Thwaites - Symphonic.
    Thornbridge - Jaipur.*
    Thornbridge - Ashford.
    Tapped - Liberty.
    Kelham Island - Hippy Chick.*
    Cornish Crown - SPA.

    Some very good beers amongst that lot, but in the end the Debaser just shades it from the Hop Monster.

    Cerne Abbas -- Ale*
    Raw -- Dark Peak Stout *
    Raw -- Blonde Pale Ale*
    Fuzzy Duck -- Thumb Ducker (spoonerism better than the beer )
    Silhill -- Old Joint Stock

    BOTW goes to a very good Raw Dark Peak Stout on fine form in The Old Cross Tavern.

    Another week dominated by the Spoons fest but with a visit to the only three Holden's pubs I hadn't been to :-


    Olde Swan Original 3.5%
    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%*
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%*
    Banks's Devils Backbone Spider Bite 4.0%
    Exmoor Fox 4.2%
    Rudgate Brew 11 Milk Stout 4.2%*
    Holden's Golden Glow 4.3%
    Phoenix Play It Again Sam 4.3%*
    Twickenham Naked Ladies 4.4%
    Greene King The Tanner's Jack 4.5%
    Nottingham Salsa 4.5%
    Wolf Lazy Dog 4.7%
    Adnam's Golden Road California Breakfast IPA 4.8%*
    Acorn Sovereign IPA 5.0%
    Bateman's Lincolnshire Red 5.0%
    Camerons Vermillion 5.0%
    Vale SPA 5.0%
    Wadworth Ye Ole Admiral 5.0%*
    Holden's Special 5.1%*
    Everard's Townshend's JCIPA 5.5%*
    Salopian Indigenous 5.5%*
    Inveralmond Rascal London Porter 5.6%
    Shepherd Neame Cerveceria Fort English IPA 5.8%
    Welton's Churchillian 6.6%*

    The winner is the Salopian Indigenous which is described as a black IPA.. A black IPA is an idea imported from the USA so this is really an experimental brew to see if it works using just British hops. I thought the taste was reasonably OK but for me it lacked the hop aroma that the New World hops provide. Despite that it was a good effort from a brewery that I rate highly.
    The nearest contender was probably from a brewery that I don't rate so highly the Wadworth's Ye Ole Admiral which was a strong pale beer with a superb bitterness.

    Several very good beers there and a difficult choice but I have to mirror Ale and Heartys choice of Revolution -Debaser The strongest beer of the day weighing in at 6% enjoyed in the very good Rook and Gaskill at the sensational price of £2.80 a pint.
    Back to work on Wednesday after a week and a half off but will try to keep my levels up with a trip to London tomorrow.
