    Harveys-Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv. Served a touch cold, but otherwise unimpeacheable.Commentators on a recent Pub Curmudgeon post (Beer snobs the lot of 'em) rubbished this beer.This was outstanding in the 70s, and is one of a handful of beers that have stood the test of time, and probably improved, and together with Hophead is one of my core beers. Speaking of which...
    Dark Star-Hophead 3.8%abv.First out of a new cask, and at its best.A close call, but my BOTW.Both taken at The Globe and Rainbow

    A visit to Hook Norton found their core beers to be hopelessly overpriced and rather dull compared to recent opposition.

    Hook Norton Hooky Mild 2.8%
    Hook Norton Hooky 3.5%
    Hook Norton Harvest Hop 3.5%
    Hook Norton Hooky Gold 4.1%
    Blackedge Platinum Blonde 4.4%
    Hook Norton Summer Haze 4.5%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Derby Black Magic 4.8%*
    Three Sods Leap Year 5.0%
    Tryst Raj IPA 5.5%*
    Franklin's North Shore IPA 5.5%*


    It's a battle between the two IPAs both tried in the E17 Bell for £3.33 with CAMRA discount, although it took several pints to decide it!
    I'm going for the more aggressively hopped Tryst Raj IPA from Scotland.

    BOTW Tryst Raj IPA

    Decent selection this week:

    Wild Beer - Pogo APA* (keg)
    Five Points - The Five Points IPA
    Cloudwater - DIPA v6* (keg)
    Howling Hops - Pale XX No2*
    Howling Hops - West Coast Special IPA*
    Siren - Soundwave
    Salopian - Oracle
    Oakham - Citra*
    Ebeltoft - Straight Outta Boston IPA (keg)
    Salopian - Hop Twister
    Dark Star - APA*
    Siren - Undercurrent*
    Oakham - Bishops Farewell*
    Titanic - Iceberg*
    Everards - Old Original*

    BOTW Cloudwater - DIPA v6 (keg). Having now tried a few decent and well known keg beers, I've firmly concluded that I prefer cask beer. Nonetheless, the DIPA was excellent - all tropical fruit and incredibly easy to drink at 9%. What would it be like on cask?
