    Two great breweries.
    Dark Star-Hophead abv 3.8%-Transcendental
    Larkins-Traditional abv 3.4%. Earthy:more hops than toffee .Slight change of recipe?

    A poor week for volume.

    Titanic -- Plum Porter *
    Saltaire -- Blonde *
    Fullers -- Olivers Island

    BOTW goes to Titanic Plum Porter on top form in Ye Olde Kings Arms,Congleton.

    Next week may get a few beers in Dorset.

    Not a great week for me but a few decent ones :-

    Loddon Hoppit 3.5%
    Wadworth Dungarvan Irish Red 4.3%
    Butcombe Gold 4.4%
    Chiltern Copper Beech 4.4%*
    Vale Black Beauty Porter 4.4%
    Bragdy Mws Piws Ochr Dywyll Y Mws 4.6%
    Twickenham Pale Beauty 4.7%*
    Brodie's Old Street Pale 5.0%*
    Bingham Space Hoppy IPA 5.0%
    Bingham Coffee Stout 5.0%*
    White Park Moonshine 5.2%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout (Rum BA) 5.4%*
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout (Coconut & Lime) 5.4%*


    I'm going for the Brodie's Jamaican Stout and the rum barrel aged one just shades it.
    It's now £2.75 at the King William IV in Leyton after yet another price increase despite the consecutive duty reductions.

    A small but well formed list:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    The Ghost Ship was better than I remembered but BOTW goes to Brancaster Oystercatcher. Locally brewed with local ingredients by local people. They do allow visitors to drink it though which is good news as at 4.4%, balanced and refreshing it's very quaffable and sails through the 3 pint test.

    Fyne Yakhop, a 3.8% light wheat beer. Tried in New Brew-M in Burnley.

    I'm not usually a big fan of wheat beers, but this one was excellent. Probably because it didn't taste that wheaty.
