    A smaller list for me this week partly due to attempting to avoid any Xmas badged beers. There's still three on here, The Arkell's and Caledonian ones are dreadful while the Hook Norton one is decent.

    Oakham JHB 3.8%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    Everard's Tiger 4.2%
    Belvoir Beaver Bitter 4.3%
    Belvoir White Knuckle Ride 4.3%
    Caledonian Cold Comfort 4.5%
    Oakham Bishop's Farewell 4.6%
    Arkell's Sir Noel 5.0%
    Bespoke Over A Barrel 5.0%
    Elland Chocolate Porter 5.2%
    Oakham Black Hole Porter 5.5%
    Hook Norton Twelve Days 5.5%
    Wadworth Old Timer 5.8%
    Black Sheep Riggwelter 5.9%
    Oakham Green Devil IPA (Keg) 6.0%
    Greene King Abbot Reserve 6.5%

    The winner is the Oakham Bishop's Farewell as tried for £3.40 in their Brewery Tap. I've no complaints about their other beers but don't recall giving this one a gong before.
    Next week hopefully some real Xmas beers in the Black Country, like Sarah Hughes Snowflake, Holden's Old Ale and Batham's XXX.

    Not bad:

    Salopian Snow Leopard*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Charnwood Vixen
    Potbelly Captain Pigwash
    Flying Monk Birdman
    Everards Tiger*
    Grainstore 1050*

    Bishops aside there wasn't anything exceptional in there but a couple of decent beers and well kept. Slightly disappointed by the Captain Pigwash, a decent porter but with a distinct tang at the end which didn't suit me.
