    I won't show you all my big list, ooer Mrs, suffice to say BOTW is Boggart Rum Porter

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Another short list due to the Spoons cider fest. It was only saved from being pathetic by a day in Liverpool, :-

    Bateman's Gold 3.9%
    Peerless Triple Blond 4.0%
    Liverpool Organic 24 Carat Gold 4.2%
    Lytham Ice King 4.4%
    Downton Bogus Buffalo 4.8%
    Portobello American Pale Ale 4.8%
    Peerless Storr 4.8%
    Liverpool Craft American Red 5.0%*
    Brodie's Californian 5.0%*
    Burton Bridge Stairway To Heaven 5.0%
    Peerless Project 366 5.0%*
    Fernandes Black Voodoo 5.1%*
    Phoenix Wobbly Bob 6.0%

    It's a close contest between the starred ones but I'll go for the Peerless Project 366 a beer brewed with what sounds like a genetically modified hop. It was in excellent condition at £1.65 in the Liverpool JDW the Lime Kiln. I dare say the price probably made it taste a whole lot better!
    Spoons cider of the week is Fynburys Rutland Cider.

    A good week for me managing a few in The Tabard, W4 after my daughter's graduation and a major session with 'oldboots' and ROBCamra, on Friday, in the 'Merrie City.'

    Titanic - Steerage, Iceberg, Last Porter Call.
    Plain - Arty Farty.
    Old Mill - Traditional Mild.
    Marstons - New World Pale.*
    Acorn - Darkness.*
    Yeovil - Lynx Wildcat.
    Castle Rock - Black Gold.
    Black Iris - Bleeding Heart.
    Brass Castle - Bad Kitty.*
    Salopian -The Bends.*
    Elland - Pacifica.
    Revolutions - Cocker.
    Abbeydale - Deception.
    Great Heck - Voodoo Mild.*
    Butcombe - Great Grey Owl.
    Fernandes - Ten Degrees.*
    Rat - Rat Attack.
    Cotleigh - Osprey.

    All the starred beers would probably have won in a quiet week, but The Bends was a lovely 5.2% APA, another winner from a favourite brewery.

    A very decent week topped off by the fine crawl around St Albans

    Titanic -- White Star *
    Titanic -- Route 10 IPA*
    Titanic -- Plum Porter*
    Titanic -- Iceberg *
    Sadlers -- Hop Bomb
    Red Squirrel -- Redwood American IPA *
    Verulam -- Alban Ale *
    RedWillow -- Shameless
    Roosters -- Seventh Innings Stretch *
    Red Squirrel -- Summer Daze
    Fullers -- Summer Ale
    Redemption -- Big Chief *
    Mad Squirrel -- Milk Stout *
    XT -- XT3
    XT -- XT15 (English IPA)
    Fullers -- Olivers Island

    St Albans had a much better range of real ales than I was expecting but BOTW goes to Titanic Route 10 IPA a beautifully complex and strong IPA in great nick in The Bulls Head,Burslem. Sadly I had just about the last pint out,if it has stayed on the three pint test would have come into play .

    This week:

    Oakham Citra
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Titanic White Star*
    Titanic Iceberg*
    Titanic Plum Porter*
    Steam Flower Power

    Sadly the Flower Power wasn't a patch on it's namesake brewed by Whim.
    All of the Titanic beers were excellent and in top nick.
    BOTW Titanic White Star. I was worried about this as the ABV has been dropped from 4.8% to 4.5%. I'm not generally in favour of reducing ABVs having experienced the change which Marston's made to Pedigree taking it from a world class beer to a barely acceptable BBB when going from 4.8% to 4.5%. In this case though all the flavour and character of White Star has been retained and a previously unputdownable beer is now even more suited to a session. Three pints - no problem.
