    Whim Ales Marynka. A light and hoppy session ale at only 3.3%. Skated through the three pint test when seen at the Blake Hotel last night.

    Quite a good week by recent standards including two new (to me) breweries.

    Banks's - Bitter
    Theakstons - Old Peculier
    Taylors - Landlord
    Durham - Lightning Rod
    York - Ghost
    Roosters - Buckeye
    Issac Poad - No 84 IPA
    York Brew - Kiwi Ale
    Rat - Bearded Rat
    Gt Heck - Yakima IPA
    York - Terrier
    Siren - Proteus
    Tiny Rebel - Stay Puft
    Roosters - Londinium


    difficult but it's Tiny Rebel Stay Puft again.

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

    A brief five-pubber in Oxford centre (Broad St / St Giles) on Weds night followed by a wedding Saturday night:

    Shotover Prospect (3.7%)
    Charles Wells Young's Bitter (3.7%)
    Vale High Flyer (4.0%)
    Adnams Mosaic (4.1%)*
    Nethergate Stour Valley Gold (4.2%)
    Gadds' Dogbolter (5.6%) (bottle) BOTW

    The Mosaic was the highlight of the Oxford session, enjoyed at the wait-for-15-minutes-whilst-tourists-dither-over-ordering-food Eagle & Child, but BOTW was the Gadds', sampled at a wedding in a hotel down at St Margaret-at-Cliffe near Dover. A classic porter with a roasty aroma, and a slightly sweet, yet bitter chocolate finish. Superb.
