    Half a day spent in the towns of St Neots and Evesham this week :-


    Cannon Royall Fruiterers Mild 3.7%
    Purity Pure Gold 3.8%
    Belhaven Grand Slam 4.0%
    Caledonian Bravo Four Point 4.0%
    Everard's Yakima 4.0%
    Sharp's Atlantic 4.2%
    Cannon Royall Evesham's Choice 4.3%
    Cannon Royall Blond Bombshell 4.3%
    Adnam's Thunder Road Pacific 4.4%
    Everard's JDW Irish Red 4.5%
    Mordue Wheat 4.5%
    Black Sheep Bighorn 4.5%
    Titanic Stout 4.5%

    The easy winner this week is Dark Star Revelation in the E4 Spoons base camp at the festival price of £2.19. This is definitely my favourite of the Dark Star regulars.

    A slim week

    Darkstar Hophead
    Oakham Citra
    Clearwater Real Smiler
    Batemans Hooker
    Doom Bore

    Although the Batemans was quite good despite the Rugby theme it has to be Oakham Citra as BOTW for the second week.

    A poor week with several bottles going down but just a few cask ales.

    Hydes -- Bruges
    Shepherd Neame -- Hog Island APA
    New River -- Riverbed Red

    BOTW goes to New River Riverbed Red ,a decent stab at a red ale served in good nick in The Duncombe Arms,Hertford.New River is a recent start up from Hoddesdon and their ale is popping up around the area,I will keep an eye out for them in future.


    Next week the usual stop in The Boat,Stoke Bruerne and the Hull crawl which should produce a long list of fine ale.

    Only one pub visit this week due to work so it has to be Brass Castle Toffee Coffee Cream Ale a bit thin and I tasted coffee but no toffee, still a beer from Brass Castle has to be a contender any week.

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

    BOTW Dr. Morton's Alphabetti Forghetti. At 4.1% like a Moonshine light which went down well on a sunny afternoon.
