    A short visit to Lichfield and a Black Country Winter Ale tour produced a good but intoxicating list.

    Redwillow Seamless 3.6%*
    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%*
    Oakham Raucous Reindeer 4.0%
    Derventio Mrs Claus 4.0%
    Sarah Hughes Green Gold 4.2%*
    Moorhouse Winter Looms 4.2%
    Caledonian Winter Brau 4.3%
    Celt Experience Lost Antlers 4.4%*
    Greene King Fireside 4.5%
    Brentwood Winter Warmer 4.7%
    Joules Old Number Six 4.8%
    Beoowulf Blizzard 5.0%
    Merry Miner Coal Face Porter 5.0%*
    Greene King Abbot 5.0%
    Exe Valley Xmas 5.0%
    Hook Norton AFO 5.4%
    Thornbridge Baize 5.5%*
    Salopian / Tiny Rebel Catatonic 5.7%*
    Batham's XXX 6.3%*
    Brass Castle Pale Stout 6.4%
    Kelham Island Mind Control 6.9%*
    Holden's Old Ale 7.2%*
    Sarah Hughes Snowflake 8.0%*

    It's between the Redwillow Seamless and the Catatonic. A joint venture between Tiny Rebel and Salopian was always likely to be good and this certainly was. It was taken at the Jolly Crispin in Upper Gornal for £3.20.

    BOTW Salopian / Tiny Rebel Catatonic

    Desperately quiet for me. We were planning to go to this pub The Ram Inn bang next door to Burning Sky Brewery. Heigh ho.

    Just the three:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Deya Steady Rolling Man*
    Partners Head 'n' Feed*

    All good and I was pleasantly surprised by the Head 'n' Feed.
    BOTW Deya Steady Rolling Man. Described as an American Pale Ale on the pump clip and from a brewery new to me. At 5.2% it was exactly as per description and whistled down.

    Mallinsons Twin Peaks, so called because it's brewed with Mount Hood & Mount Rainier hops (clever eh!).

    A light, hoppy, 4.3% session beer. Slid down very nicely in The Baum.
