    A quiet week in Kent.
    Kent Brewery-Black Gold. 4%abv. Described as a black golden ale:a bit more tasty than that, I thought.An Old for the Summer, perhaps.Taken at Black Dog

    Ringwood - Boondoggle. Remarkable in that it was from a plastic container in the Whistling Wren, Leigh. The pub is next door to Leigh Sports Village and was heavily loaded ahead of yesterday's rugby.

    With the choice between San Miguel and Oakham Bishops Farewell, the answer seemed obvious.

    Hoping for a wider selection next week.
