    Pretty average sort of week, livened up by several old favourites.

    Hawkshead - Dry Stone Stout.
    Wishbone - Whero.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Elland - 1872 Porter.*
    Robinsons - Trooper Red & Black.
    Leeds - Pale.
    York - Terrier.
    Ossett - Spellbound*
    Abbeydale - Full English Breakfast.*
    Rat - White Rat.*

    The 1872 just shades it from the Plum Porter and the Spellbound. A great beer for the colder months and on surprisingly good form at Bower's Tap, Leeds. Rather disappointing was the Trooper Red & Black, which had been recommended to me and seemed to taste like something from the 1970s.

    Bristol and some Gloucestershire odds 'n' sods:


    Milk Street Funky Monkey (4.0%)*
    GK Old Golden Hen (4.1%)
    Cotswold Lion Best in Show (4.2%)*
    Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat (keg) (4.2%)
    H&H Rocking Rudolph (4.2%)
    Ashley Down Pale Ale (4.3%)*
    Wychwood Wickerman (4.4%)*
    Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout (cask) (4.5%)
    Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout (keg) (4.5%)
    Box Steam Piston Broke (4.5%)*
    Founders All Day IPA (bottle) (4.7%)
    Bristol Beer Factory Twelve Apostles (keg) (5.0%)
    BrewDog IPA (can) (5.6%)

    Some nice surprises amongst that lot, including the low beer miles Ashley Down, tried in Bristol's excellent Draper's Arms micropub and another in a similar vein in the Cotswold Lion, stumbled upon at Bidrlip's Royal George Hotel, but going to go for the Milk Street which was the first of the week, and in superb condition. Always good (although rare) to start the week off with quality.
