    Darkstar Hophead
    ELB Foundation Bitter*
    Portobello Westway Pale
    Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale*
    Dorking Gold
    Fullers Olivers Island
    Bowmans Swift One*
    Thurstons Horsell Gold
    St Austell Tribute

    The East London Brewing - Foundation Bitter was excellent although not normally my beer style of choice, but it was pipped to the post by a very well presented pint of Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale enjoyed in the Compasses Inn.
    I am expecting a larger list next week with St Albans Friday and my local Beer Festival Saturday, Sunday could be a day of semi rest.

    Agreed, especially compared to last year's winner. The ELB Foundation Bitter mentioned above is miles better!

    I've only a short list as my local Spoons started the Cider Festival early!
    Most of these were tried on a tour of SE London micropubs :-


    Sambrook's Wandle 3.8%
    Kent Black Gold 4.0%
    Canterbury Ales Reeves Ale 4.1%
    Truman's Lazarus 4.2%
    RCH Pitchfork 4.3%
    Old Dairy Gold Top 4.3%
    Everard's International Indian Red Ale 4.4%
    Bexley Howbury 3 Hopped Ale 4.5%
    Old Dairy Silver Top 4.5%
    Titanlic Plum Porter 4.9%
    Canterbury Brewers Kobold 5.0%
    Bateman's Barcelona Pale 5.0%
    Brodie's Californian 5.0%
    Cameron's 150 5.0%



    The winner is the Kent brewery Black Gold tried at the Door Hinge in Welling. This is a dark beer brewed with New World hops so could be described as a weak porter with a twist or a low ABV Black IPA. The runner up is the Californian which Brodie's haven't brewed for four years. It's a different recipe from the old one and possibly not quite as good but it does have a huge hop flavour.

    Spoons cider of the week is Barbourne Crimson King Cider (6.0%), a proper cloudy dryish cider and just £2.05 at the E4 King's Ford.
    Next week I'm out to get The General.

    Finally, after a poor run of form, managed a decent week, this week.

    Mallinsons - Mount Pleasant Mild.
    Ilkley - Lotus IPA.*
    Exit33 - Golden Cascade.
    Kelham Island - Tin Can Avenger.
    Great Heck - Mosaic.*
    GreatHeck - Voodoo Mild.*
    Brightside - B-side.
    Green Duck - Drunkun Duck.
    Fernandes - American Red Rye Ale.*
    Fernandes - 10 Degrees.*

    The Voodoo Mild, Red Rye and !0 Degrees were all excellent, but the latter, a beefy (6%) black IPA, really hit the spot.

    Can't argue with that, definitely one of my favourites. Elland's dark beers, as a whole, tend to be very good. I find their pale beers much more variable.
