    A day in Manchester produced some nice if ridiculously expensive beers but the winner came from the One Inn The Wood micropub in Petts Wood.


    Portobello Westway Pale Ale 4.0%
    Brodie's Amarillo 4.2%*
    Backyard Dandelion & Burdock Porter 4.2%*
    Long Man Copper Hop 4.2%*
    Kissingate Black Cherry Mild 4.2%*
    Taylor's Landlord 4.3%
    Loddon Green Bullet 4.6%
    Dunscar Best Bitter 4.1%
    King Red River 4.8%
    Old Dairy Blue Top 4.8%
    Kent Berry Mild Porter 4.8%*
    Northern Alchemy UK Hopped 4.9%
    Kelham Island Miami 5.0%*
    Blackjack Stout 5.0%*
    Hambledon Nightmare 5.0%
    Marble Lagonda IPA 5.0%*
    Thornbridge Kipling 5.2%*
    Buxton Gold 5.2%*
    Redwillow Sleepless 5.4%*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%*
    Phoenix Wobbly Bob 6.0%
    Brodie's Hoxton Special (keykeg) 6.6%*


    The winner is the Kent Berry Mild Porter. This is a brew along similar lines to the excellent Titanic Plum Porter but I think it's better as the berry fruits give it a sharpness. Kent brewery is becoming one of my favourites,

    Siren can really do great beers and their Mums the Word -a cherry chilli milk porter was probably the best beer I have had this year.
    also worth a mention were three Mallinson beers.Pale and hoppy as usual.
    spa 9
    real deal
    baby simcoe
    and two beers from Ansbach and Hobday rarely found on cask
    smoked brown
    best bitter

    One of the birthplaces of cricket:
    Dark Star-Hophead 3.8%abv: Dunno if they've changed the recipe:this tasted more tropically fruity than I remember, and a notch less tooth raspingly astringent. Perhaps more to my taste!

    A poor week,but a sensible calm before the storm.

    Dark Star -- American Pale Ale*
    Tring -- Moongazer *

    I enjoyed the Tring beer but BOTW goes to Dark Star American Pale Ale on fine form in the Old Cross Tavern ,Hertford .A present for fathers day well received.

    Next week is the start of a weeks booze cruise so expect a much longer list and a very late submission.Should be quality ale all the way

    All quality this week:

    Blue Monkey Ape Ale*
    Blue Monkey Marmalape*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    BOTW Blue Monkey Marmalape. Another winner from a reliable brewery which looks like a BBB. It isn't.

    Judging by your reviews so far you weren't in Manchester really you were in Chorlton which is one of Manchester's most expensive suburbs.

    It's all Manchester and the Frozen North to me!! How does that work anyway? People don't go to Kentish Town or Putney and say they are not really in London.
    At least the beer quality was good apart from the Port Street Beer House which was a complete joke.
    if I go to Manchester again I'll find an area full of Holt's pubs and / or Spoons.
