    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Nothing of great interest this week.
    Red Cat Scratch
    Triple fff Pressed Rat & Warthog
    Adnams Lighthouse
    Exmoor Gold
    Caledonian Golden XPA

    The Exmoor Gold was in the best condition and BOTW.
    Another quiet week expected next week.

    A fair list this week with nothing really outstanding but only the Lymestone (rank) and the Radgie Gadgie (cloudy) being poor.

    Black Paw Santa Paws 4.0%
    Malt Anniversary Ale 4.4%
    Tonbridge Old Chestnut 4.4%
    Redemption Hopspur 4.5%
    Nene Valley Egyptian Cream 4.5%
    Canterbury Knights 4.6%
    Lymestone Stone Cold 4.7%
    Allday Green Hop Fuggles 4.8%
    Quantock Plastered Pheasant 4.8%
    Mordue Radgie Gadgie 4.8%
    ELB Jamboree 4.8%
    Everard's Red Ale 5.0%
    Greene King Abbot 5.0%
    Adnams / Sixpoint Make It Rain 5.0%
    St Peters IPA 5.5%
    Nene Valley Jim Irvine IPA 5.6%
    Redwell Kofra Stout 5.9%
    Wantsum Ravening Wolf 5.9%

    The winner is the JDW International Make It Rain which despite all the rubbish about flying the brewer over is very recognisable as an Adnam's beer. It was £2.49 in the E4 King's Ford where the beer choice had deteriorated with a new manager but not the quality.

    BOTW Adnams / Sixpoint Make It Rain

    BOTW Oakham Black Hole Porter

    Another quiet week, as I was still recovering from the lurgy.

    Kirkstall - Three Swords.
    Fernandes - Black Chalice IPA.
    Rat - Mother Rat.
    Fyne - Jarl.
    Fernandes - Summit.

    Normally, Three Swords and Jarl would be in the running, but hey were both a little underwhelming. By contrast, the Summit was as fresh as a daisy and therefore an easy winner.

    Next week must improve,double dose of footie and a drift into Leighton Buzzard.

    down 'ere, from oop there


    A fine tour of Peterborough on Saturday with good beer all along the route. Whatever my two in the Palmerston were were in especially fine fettle, but I'm going to have to go for the first of the day, and my first for 10days(!!!), Oakham Bishops Farewell in top shape at the Brewery Tap
    The tour also offered 3 newbies (to me) and would have been 4 if we hadn't run out of time for the Swiss Cottage Inn.
