    Hampshire and Surrey. Unfortunately my trip to Winchester didn't afford any new pubs.
    Palmers-Copper Ale 3.7%abv:I've always had a soft spot for Palmers' beers.Nutty and earthy session bitter.On gravity dispense.
    Triple fff-Comfortably Numb 5%abv- Rich copper, great condition.Avuncularily fruity with a long spicy finish.On gravity.
    Pilgrim-Surrey Bitter 3.7%abv-Mid brown earthy session bitter.
    Phoenix-Brunning and Price Original Bitter 3.8%abv Malty bitter with a long dry finish. Served with a "Northern" creamy head.
    Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv-Unimpeachable Harvey's.
    A toss up between the Harvey's and the Triple fff. Comfortably Numb wins it, my BOTW. Taken at Tichborne Arms

    Not a bad week for this time of year :-

    Adnam's Mosaic 4.1%*
    Bowland Buster IPA 4.5%*
    360 Degree Pacific Red #45 4.5%*
    St Austell Proper Job 4.5%*
    Black Edge IPA 4.7%*
    Nethergate Old Growler 5.0%
    Brodie's Black APA 5.0%*
    Naylor's Snowstorm 5.0%
    Dark Star Festival 5.0%
    Jenning's Snecklifter 5.1%
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.4%
    Hook Norton Twelve Days 5.5%
    Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout 6.0%*
    Greene King Abbot Reserve 6.5%

    I'm going for the Black Edge IPA, a modest strength one but with a commendable bitterness. Tried in the E17 Bell for £3.24 (inc CAMRA discount).


    BOTW Black Edge IPA

    Sparse,
    Darkstar Hophead
    Wimbledon Special Pale Ale
    Otter Winter Warmer
    Driftwood Pale Ale
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop

    Bottles/Tins at home
    Brewdog Dead Pony Club
    Brewdog Punk IPA
    Crafty Dan 13 Guns
    Lagunitas IPA

    I don't often include home drinking because I don't often drink at home, but due to lack of pub action I have, and BOTW goes to the wonderful Lagunitas IPA.

    Managed three pubs,one of which wasn't on PuG but is now pending.


    Daleside -- Santa's Progress
    Siren Craft -- Undercurrent *
    Fountain -- Beer House (brewed on the premises)
    Moor -- Confidence
    Siren Craft -- Rysing Tide IPA (keg)
    Cross Bay -- Sunset (keg)
    Freedom -- East India Pale lager (keg)

    BOTW goes to Siren Craft Undercurrent ,a fine session ale until it ran out in The Old Fountain

    Final week of the year will include london callings London crawl which really should throw up some gems.

    The contenders:

    Blue Monkey King Kong Merrily
    Everards Tiger
    Everards Old Original
    St Austell Jolly Holly
    Alsace

    The King Kong Merrily was again good but BOTW was Everards Old Original. A well kept pint, festive and smooth enough to disappear swiftly on Christmas Day.

    bad seed -expresso stout
    bbno -coffee porter
    big smoke -dark wave porter
    southwark -potters field porter
    marble -American porter
    weird beard -dark hopfer
    weird beard -decadence stout
    fullers -London porter
    but I couldn't resist trying BOTW

    Vocation Cloak & Dagger in The Baum of course.

    A super smooth oatmeal stout and dangerously drinkable at a whopping 5.9%.
