    Junction 5, M3 , well fairly close.


    Darkstar Hophead
    Adnams Mosaic*
    Camerons A-Hop-Alypse Now*
    Robinsons Robohop
    Fullers London Pride
    Fullers ESB
    Gales Seafarers
    Burning Sky Plateau*
    Twickenham Naked Ladies
    Salopian Hop Twister*
    Siren Broken Dream*
    Sierra Nevada Pale (keg)*

    The Broken Dream was Fantastic as usual but the Hop Twister was equally good and more attuned to my mood at the time,BOTW and enjoyed in the White Hart, Waterloo despite being £2.25 a half.

    Hunter's Half Bore 4.0%
    Butcombe Bitter 4.0%
    Cornish Crown One Hop Grain 4.1%
    St Austell Tribute 4.2%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold 4.2%
    Cotleigh Lemon Ale 4.3%
    Marston's Pedigree 4.5%
    Quantock White Hind 4.5%*

    The Skinner's one just gets a star as it's the only one of their beers I've tried that I didn't find boring. The winner is Twisted Oak Sheriff Fatman as tried for £2.85 in the Bristol Commercial Rooms JDW.

    Burning Sky-Saison d' hiver 4.2%abv. A new direction for me ,not having tried a Saison before, nor having knowingly drank a keykeg product . Both elements were agreeably satisfied by this austerely hazy beer, taken at The Thomas Tallis Alehouse, a recently opened possible East Kent Micro.
    Wantsum-Montgomery IPA 4%abv.The New World hops were not to the fore. Some lactic back taste.A reasonably well established Kent Micro, until now untried by me.
    My BOTW-Burning Sky-Saison l'hiver.

    Williams Bros The Juniper Tree
    North Brewing Prototype
    Harrogate Vanilla Porter*
    Bad Co Satisfaction
    North Riding Kiwi Mild
    Okells IPA
    Black Sheep Black Sheep Ale
    Cannon Royall Fruiterers Mild
    Wobbly Brewing American Amber*
