    Minamalistic- a mid-week cold plus Laryngitis didn't help, as well as working all weekend.
    Red Cat Scratch
    Hop Art Golden IPA
    Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay
    Fullers London Pride
    Longman Long Blonde

    The Scratch was good but I'll give it Longman Long Blonde Light drinking but flavoursome.

    Greenfield Silver Owl 4.0%
    Ossett Vivienne May 4.1%
    Phoenix Arizona 4.1%
    Black Country Chain Ale 4.2%
    Everard's Afro-Caribbean Hopsession 4.3%
    Everard's Pitch Black 4.3%
    Brains Open Casket 4.5%
    Millstone Stout 4.5%
    Riverhead March Haigh 4.6%
    Hackney American Pale Ale 4.5%
    XT 6 4.5%
    Dark Star American Pale Ale 4.7%
    Loddon Bamboozle 4.8%
    Elephant School (Brentwood) Porter In A Storm 4.9%
    Adnam's Sloe Porter 5.0%
    Truman's Sampson Strong 5.8%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%
    Oakham Green Devil IPA 6.0%
    Rat Nosferatu 6.5%
    Brentwood Chocwork Orange 6.5%
    Greene King Old Crafty Hen 6.5%


    The winner is the same as last week but this time it's the cask version as tried for £2.45 in the Stalybridge Society Rooms.

    A reasonable week.

    Tarn 51 - By George.
    North Riding - NZ IPA (Motueka).*
    Whippet - English Whippet.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Fernandes - Red Rye IPA.*
    Raw - Independence APA.
    Beer Ink - Flagship.
    Dr Mortons - Non Stick.
    Ossett - Spellbound.*
    Rat - White Rat.*
    Welbeck Abbey - Henrietta Grande.
    Phoenix - Black Bee.

    The NZ IPA and the Plum Porter were both on fine form, at Harry's Bar, Wakefield. However, as the latter has been nominated several times down the years, I'll give it to the former.

    Decent week:

    Batemans Texan Triple Hop
    Pheasantry Dark Ale
    Saltaire Blonde
    Burning Sky Aurora*
    Orkney Red MacGregor*
    Fullers ESB *
    Tring Side Pocket for a Toad*
    Aylesbury Brew Company Cellular*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Salopian Vortex*

    Tricky one this week with the Aurora, Red MacGregor and Cellular all worthy contenders.
    BOTW Salopian Vortex. Pale, citrussy and very drinkable at 4%. Three pint test passed with ease.

    Decent enough week but have to agree with Aqualung,the 'spoons fest ,as experienced in The George,was very poor with some stillage ales badly out of condition,and dull festival brews.Tim needs a rethink.

    Saltaire -- Blonde
    Burning Sky -- Aurora *
    Orkney -- MacGregor Red * (3PT)
    Fullers -- ESB *
    Tring -- Sidepocket for a Toad *
    Aylesbury Brewhouse Co. -- Cellular * (3PT)
    Adams -- Sloe Porter
    Titanic -- Sea
    Bent Spoke -- Braddons Bitter
    Wild Beer -- Bibble


    BOTW goes to Aylesbury Brewhouse Co. Cellular,a limited edition red ale on fine form in The Papermill,Apsley

    Next week doesn't look clever.

    Naylors Citradelic tried in the Regal Moon during the rather disappointing JDW Beer Festival.
