    Only a small list this week.:-

    Surrey Hills Shere Drop 4.2%
    Brodie's Stepney Green Steam 4.5%
    Burton Bridge Burton Porter 4.5%*
    Twickenham Champion's Ale 4.7%*
    Dark Star APA 4.7%*
    Hawkshead Cumbrian Five Hop 5.0%*
    Hydes Munchen 5.0%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%*
    Brodie's Leytonstone Stout (Keykeg) 6.0%
    Dark Star Green Hopped IPA 6.5%

    The winner is the Dark Star APA in excellent condition for £2.85 at the Leatherhead Spoons. It should really have been the 5 Hop but that would have been a repeat. The Green Hopped was a bit disappointing, probably because it was served on gravity in a warm room.


    BOTW Dark Star APA

    A quiet week.

    Mallinsons - Columbus.
    Fernandes - American Red Rye Ale.*
    Rat - Rata Nui.*
    Fernandes - Latte.*
    Fernandes - Two Islands IPA.
    Titanic- Cappuccino.*

    Easy winner was the Rata Nui, another very drinkable hoppy, golden ale from the Rat stable.
