    East Sussex:

    Harvey's-Bonfire Boy 5.8%abv- Rich roast malt, a bit of woodsmoke. Mellow, perhaps too mellow for lunchtime.
    Hurst Brewery-Keeper's Gold 4.4%abv-Well rounded Golden Ale:the malt given scope to complement the nettley hops.

    A few days in Cumbria and Scotland up to Glasgow produced a varied list :-

    Bank Top Flat Cap 4.0%
    Carlisle Spun Gold 4.2%
    Ayr Rabbie's Porter 4.3%
    Isle Of Skye Skye Gold 4.3%
    Theakston Vanilla Stout 4.5%*
    Cumbrian Legendary Paciific Voyager 4.5%
    Carlisle Oatmeal Stout 4.7%
    Elgood's Indian Summer 4.8%
    Keswick KSB 4.8%
    Hawkshead Brodie's Prime 4.9%*
    Drygate Seven Peaks Mosaic IPA 5.0%*
    Woodforde's Norfolk Bowman 5.0%
    Titanic S.E.A 5.0%
    Shepherd Neame Hot Night At The Village 5.0%
    Adnam's Sloe Porter 5.0%
    Brewster's Hop Quest 5.2%*
    Hardknott Intergalactic Space Hopper 5.2%*
    Castle Rock Phoenix Red 5.5%
    Truman's Sampson Strong 5.8%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%*
    Oakham Green Devil IPA 6.0%*
    Broughton Old Jock 6.7%

    The Green Devil IPA is probably the real winner in two Glasgow Spoons but I don't like repeats so it's the Drygate Seven Peaks Mosaic IPA (£2.09) in the Glasgow Society Rooms Lloyds.
    The above is also one of three contenders for a Cheapskate award, the other two being the Jaipur for £3.10 at the Cavers Arms (not a JDW) in Dumfries but the clear winner is at the Auld Brig in Irvine. This is a horrible shopping centre JDW in a town that a friend described as "ghastly" but the 6.7% ABV Broughton Old Jock there was a magnificent £1.29 a pint. Now what exactly did Tim Martin say about supermarkets selling beer at a loss?

    Squawk - Pale. In the new Gasworks on First St Manchester, I think the first time I've been in a pub on its official opening day.
