    I suspect if a new micro in the same area is also brewing one then legal things may well happen.
    I think Northumberland and North Blyth are the same people.

    Not a bad week:

    Oakham Citra*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Church End Stout Coffin*
    Gloucester Brewery Citra*
    Blue Monkey The Year of the Monkey*
    Blue Monkey Chimp Chim-In-Nee

    All decent contenders, especially The Year of The Monkey brewed for the Chinese New Year.
    BOTW Church End Stout Coffin. A classic 4.6% stout which just suited on a chilly day.

    Quietish week for me, still haven't managed a decent Sunday afternoon session yet, this year.

    Five Towns - HB.*
    Bird Brain - Howden Bitter.
    Camerons - A-Hop-Alypse Now.*
    Kelham Island - Kelham ESB.
    Exit 33 - Speyside Whisky Aged Stout.*
    Acorn - Hallertau Blanc IPA.*
    Otley - Milk Stout.*
    Exit 33 - Hop Monster.*

    Quite hard to choose, this week. However, the Speyside edges it. It's a big hitting stout (7%), aged for 10 months in Speyside whisky casks. Very good indeed.

    One and the same.New name for Northumberland.I thought I must have drank that one but apparently not but I have drank 23 Northumberland beers but none for several years now and if its up to their usual standards its best avoided.

    Roosters Fruity Pale - a trial brew from Roosters (not under the Outlaw label usually used for trials).

    An excellent fruity IPA at 5.3%, everyone who tasted it would like it to become a regular.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Brass Castle Bad Kitty. A superb 5.5% Vanilla Porter. Tried several times in The Baum.

    Tastes its strength, but still goes down easily, good job it was a Saturday.
