    Old Dairy-Cattle Shed APA:4.5%. Bit different from Old Dairy's usual offering.Assertive hopseaches,bit of grass in there.

    Junction 5, M3 , well fairly close.


    A Corfoit list
    Corfu Beer Special Red
    Corfu Beer Pilsner
    Vast quantitys of all taken , but happy to discover Corfu Beer, a real ale brewery est 2009 and the only such on the island,bottled, served chilled as you would expect given the climate but not bad at all.
    BOTW is the Pilsner, they do a few other beers including an IPA and a black beer I hope to track down over the next week.

    A day in the West Midlands and a half day in thundery Essex so a reasonable list :-

    Banks's Mild 3.5%*
    George's Brickfield IPA 3.6%
    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%*
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%*
    Morton Essington Blond 4.0%
    Greene King Ale'oha 4.1%
    Hobgoblin Gold 4.2%
    Maldon Brewing Co Puck's Folly 4.2%
    Mighty Oak Kings 4.2%*
    Truman's Lazarus 4.2%*
    Burton Bridge Snapshot 4.5%
    Derby Double Mash 4.6%*
    Sharp's Point Break 4.6%
    Grey Friars Auld Jack 4.7%
    Backyard Chinook IPA 5.0%
    Caledonian Golden Promise 5.0%
    Sadler's Hop Bomb 5.0%*
    Sharp's Special 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%*
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild 6.0%
    Elland Hoptomiser 6.5%*

    The comfortable winner is the Elland Hoptomiser as tried in the Great Western at £3.50. This certainly proved to me that Elland aren't a one trick pony.

    BOTW Elland Hoptomiser

    Modest week

    Adnams -- Southwold Bitter
    Clarkshaws -- Strange Brew no. 1 *
    Brecon Brewing -- Red Beacon
    Marstons -- Pedigree New World Pale Ale *

    BOTW goes to Clarkshaws Strange Brew no.1 from The Parcel Yard ,Kings Cross. Brewed hazy,interesting hops in a balanced brown beer it slipped down with ease.Not come across this Brixton based micro before.

    Next week looking ropey apart from some pre match pints.

    Reasonable week for me.

    Frog Island - Best Bitter.
    Frog Island - Natterjack.
    Imperial - HipHop.*
    Mr Grundy - 1914.*
    Mallinsons - Baby Mosaic.*
    Red Squirrel - Mad Squirrel Milk Stout.
    Brass Csatle - Sunshine.*
    Fernandes - Westgate Wobbler.
    Fernandes - Newky Black.

    Easy winner this week, the superb Baby Mosaic, packed with flavour for a 3.7% beer. Sampled in the Fernandes Tap, Wakefield.

    Corona Extra

    Best of the eurofizz available and definitely benefits from a slice of lime in the top.
