    Dark Star Hophead*
    Dark Star Hophead Dry*
    Hop Art Hoppy Blonde*
    Courage Best
    Wells Bombardier
    Arundle Pickled Moose*
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale*
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop
    Ringwood Forty Niner

    A few good and some varying in degrees of average to poor, but the Pickled Moose (had never heard of it before) turned out an interesting and very nice beer, fruity and hoppy and BOTW.

    Not a bad week with a visit to Ipswich and a day in Bridgnorth via Wolverhampton.


    Wye Valley HPA 4.0%*
    Holden's 101 Black Pale Ale 4.1%*
    Cliff Quay Tolly Roger 4.2%
    Brodie's Archer's Pale 4.3%
    Holden's Golden Glow 4.4%
    Elland Nettle Thrasher 4.4%
    Hobson's Town Crier 4.5%*
    Titanic Stout 4.5%*
    Shackleton The Boss 4.5%*
    Adnam's Ghost Ship 4.5%*
    Long Man Sussex Pride 4.5%*
    Summerskill's Barley Mow Mild 4.8%
    Long Man APA 4.8%*
    Brodie's Ginger Beer 4.8%
    Hop & Stagger IPA 5.0%
    Grain Winter Ash 5.0%
    Brodie's Black APA 5.0%*
    Cotleigh Snowy 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%*
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%*
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.4%*
    Caledonian / Baird Rising Sun Pale Ale 5.5%
    Exmoor Beast 6.6%

    Nothing really stands out from the starred ones so I'll go for the Brodie's Black APA as tried in the E10 King William at £2.75. Second place would be the Brodie's Jamaican Stout!

    BOTW Brodie's Black APA
