    Shouldn't this be W/E the 2nd of August? The other two are wrong as well.
    No cider this week!

    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%*
    Rooster's Wild Mule 3.9%*
    Brakspear Oxford Gold 4.0%
    Joule's Pale Ale 4.1%
    Titanic Iceberg 4.1%
    Slater's Butler's Bell (aka Premium) 4.4%
    Adnam's Jester 4.5%*
    Sambrook's Lavender Hill 4.5%
    Harviestoun Schiehallion 4.8%
    Redwillow Wreckless 4.8%*
    Slater's Western APA 4.9%*
    Waddworth Summer of 1842 5.0%
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%*
    Brodie's Californian 5.0%*
    Mordue IPA 5.1%*
    Holden's Special 5.1%*
    Rooster's Londinium 5.5%*
    Downton Daark Delight 5.5%
    Inveralmond Rascal London Porter 5.6%*
    Derby Quintessential 5.8%
    Phoenix Wobbly Bob 6.0%*

    The Wobbly Bob was not Wobbly Bob! It had a taste and aroma of New World hops and was not sweet. I suspect it was their West Coast IPA that had been labelled wrongly. I'm going for the Mordue IPA which was £2.60 in the George at Wanstead. I was surprised to see that it has amarillo and cascade hops in it as I thought the bitterness was much more akin to the English style. Disappointment of the week was the Titanic Iceberg. I'm sure this doesn't have the hoppy bitterness of old and I think the White Star is the same. I found it to be quite a pedestrian golden ale.

    BOTW Salopian Treasure Trove. A pale, hoppy and refreshing beer and at 4% ideal for a warm day.

    A good week variety wise, but one or two favourites a little below their best.

    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.
    Oldershaw - Sunny Daze.
    Rat - White Rat.*
    Titanic - White Star.
    Rudgate - Chocolate Stout.
    Hop Back - Summer Lightning.
    Revisionist - West Coast IPA.
    Goose Eye - Over & Stout.*
    Thornbridge - Ashford.
    Great Heck - Yakima IPA.*
    RCH - Double Header.
    North Riding - Oatmeal Stout.*
    Titanic - Plum Porter.
    Red Squirrel - Redwood APA.
    Fernandes - American Pale.
    Mallinsons - Ella.*
    Raw - Black Forest Stout.
    Half Moon - APA.
    Rat - Crazy Rat.*

    With both the Plum Porter and Redwood APA a little subdued, it was a straight fight between the Ella and Crazy Rat, with the latter just shading it. A very drinkable, intensely fruity APA.

    Quite a selection and a mighty difficult choice with BFA and a Kirkstall beer in there,

    Rudgate Jorvick
    Bradfield Farmers Stout
    Pennine Hair of the Dog
    Acorn Barnsley Bitter
    Ossett Excelsior
    Roosters Baby Faced Assassin
    Roosters All Star
    Roosters White Rose
    Roosters Buckeye
    Bad Co Bourbon Brown
    Bad Co Bounty Hunter
    Black Sheep Special Brew #24
    Gt Heck Christopher
    Tetleys Cask
    Theakstons Best Bitter
    Ilkley Summer
    Kirkstall Three Swords
    Hop Studio Porter


    I'm going with the Bad Co Bourbon Brown, oak aged in a Bourbon cask, not a session ale at 7.5% but very nice

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best
