    Junction 5, M3 , well fairly close.


    Red Cat Scratch
    Long Man American Pale Ale
    Three Castles Firestorm
    Mad Dog Orange Cargo
    Newby Wyke Banquo
    London Beer Lab Mosaic & Equinox*
    Fyne Ales Cardinal
    Ilkley Hanging Stone*
    Waen Chilli Plum Porter*
    Siren/Hoppin- Frog 5 Alarm*

    A difficult choice, the London Beer Lab Mosaic & Equinox was very good but the two latter beers on the list managed to use a difficult ingredient beerwise(chilli) very well indeed, both were excellent, but the Siren collaboration really nailed it . BOTW is Siren/Hoppin Frog- 5 Alarm weighing in at a sturdy 7.4%.

    Kent-Session Pale Ale 3.7%abv. A welcome chance to revisit this previous BOTW.Delicious. Marmalade. A modern Kentish classic.My BOTW.
    On the bottled front I particularly enjoyed Harvey's Prince of Denmark, a beguiling as sin stout.

    I'm a big fan of the Salopian brewery but their Lemon Dream isn't one of my favourites. It was spot on in the Wolverhampton Great Western at £3.00.

    A 4.6% Autumn, amber, spiced ale which delivers a sufficiently bitter and moreish finish to demand another. Three pints? No problem.

    A bit of a come down, after Huddersfield last week.

    Truefitt - Holgate.*
    Nethergate - Black Shadow.
    Ridgeside - Stargazer.*
    Bad Co - Smashing Pumpkin.
    North Riding - US Session IPA.*
    Blackjack - Beginner's Luck.
    Exit 33 - Golden Cascade.
    Dark Star - Green Hopped IPA.
    Slightly Foxed - Crazy Fox.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.*
    Ossett - Inception.
    Vocation - Chop & Change.
    Rudgate - Right as Grain.

    Easy winner was the US Session IPA, brewed with Comet, Chinook and Azacca hops. Great flavour for a 3.8% beer.

    What a miserable week beer wise

    Wells Bombardier
    Wells Bombardier Burning Gold
    Chantry Two Magpies Porter
    Chantry Diamond Black Stout
    Leeds Pale

    BOTW Chantry Two Magpies Porter far better than their Stout tried just after.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.
