    There are two or three more drank in the Nags Head Friday, not recorded and now beyond recall, some really top notch beers this weekend but for the second week in a row a bottle takes the prize, Siren Craft (undoubtedly going to be my brewery of the year) Blue Sky Blue Sea, Brewed with two varients of seaweed along with cloudberrys,It totally blew me away, much enjoyed in the Castle Tap.

    Having dropped out of Derby, it was always going to be a quiet week.

    Roosters- Nectar.

    Only a small list this week and apart from the 5 Hop which I've nominated before nothing outstanding, although they were all perfectly drinkable:-

    Triple fff Apache Rose Peacock 4.2%
    Rockin' Robin Peacemaker 4.4%
    Rockin' Robin Blizzard of Oz 4.5%
    Wantsum Chinook 4.5%
    Everard's Sudwerk Inbetween 4.8%
    Adnam's Wild Hop 4.8%
    Hawkshead Cumbrian Five Hop 5.0%*
    Jenning's Sneck Lifter 5.1%
    Old Dairy Snow Top 6.0%

    When in doubt go for the strongest so it's the Old Dairy Snow Top as tried for £2.15 in the Rochester Spoons the Golden Lion. It's an old school winter ale that isn't sweet and cloying and I enjoyed it enough to stay for a second.

    BOTW Old Dairy Snow Top

    Kent
    Whitstable-Single Hop Styrian Goldings 4.4%abv. Rather lacklustre.Perhaps the rather wishy washy golden ale base not the best showcase for this continental Fuggle.
    Old Dairy-Red Top 3.8% abv.Reliable session bitter.Soil in the soul. My BOTW.

    The choice:

    Great Oakley Wot's Occuring*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Infinity +1*

    BOTW Blue Monkey Infinity +1. Exactly as it says, Infinity at 5.6% rather than 4.6%. Easily passes the 3 pint test. Very dangerous and very, very drinkable.
