    Reasonable week

    Elgoods -- Straw Bitter *
    Belhaven -- Grand Slam
    Oakham -- Inferno *
    Ampthill Brewhouse -- IPA
    Nobby's -- Plum Porter (keg)
    Mordue -- Wheat *
    Salopian -- Darwins Origin *
    Titanic -- Plum Porter *

    I'm always nominating Titanic Plum Porter ,so to avoid being repetative BOTW goes to Mordue Wheat ,very refreshing and in good nick in The George,Croydon.

    Next week a voyage through Warwick,Knowle and Birmingham so consumption will rise and hopefully there will be several quality BOTW contenders.

    A couple of leisurely days out this week with some good beers tried :-

    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%*
    Grainstore Rutland Osprey 4.0%
    Nobby's Swift Nick 4.2%
    Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold 4.2%*
    Adnam's Oyster Stout 4.3%*
    Lymestone Stonefish Mild 4.4%
    Wadworth's 6X Gold 4.5%
    Oakham St Bibiana 4.5%*
    Full Mash Nevermore Stout 4.6%*
    Oakham Bishop's Farewell 4.6%
    Enville Ginger 4.6%*
    Otter Fusion 4.8%
    Exmoor XPA 4.8%
    Hanlon's Port Stout 4.9%*
    Grainstore 1050 5.0%
    Millstone True Grit 5.0%*
    Bristol Beer Factory Bitter Kiwi 5.0%*
    Brodie's Californian 5.0%*
    Holden's Special 5.1%*
    Brodie's Jamaican Stout 5.4%*
    Potbelly Crazy Daze 5.5%
    Celt Experience Galaxy Equinox IPA 5.6%*
    Dark Star Revelation 5.7%
    Brodie's Mocha Milk Stout 9.0%*

    It's a straight fight between the BFf Kiwi in the Wolverhampton Great Western and the Celt Experience IPA in my local Spoons. The Celt Experience Galaxy Equinox IPA just edges it . It was freshly on in the E4 King's Ford at £2.49 and was superb. I assume it's on the current JDW guest list so it is likely to appear in a Spoons in the next three months.

    Very quiet week for me.

    Rat - White Rat. *
    Fernandes - Mosaic.*
    Roosters - Buckeye.
    Liverpool Organic - Kitty Wilkinson.*

    Not much in it between the Rat and Mosaic, but as I've nominated the former quite a few times, I'll give the honours to the latter.
