    Bucks bits and bobs:

    Rebellion IPA (3.7%)
    Springhead Left Lion (4.0%)
    Bingham's Brickworks Bitter (4.2%)*
    Exmoor Fox (4.2%)
    Rebellion Quantum (4.2%)
    Thornbridge Lukas (4.2%) (keg)
    Windsor & Eton Guardsman (4.2%)
    Goose Island 312 (4.4%) (bottle)
    Adnams Ghost Ship (4.5%)*
    Exmoor Gold (4.5%)
    Magic Rock Inhaler (4.5%) (keg)
    Tiny Rebel Juicy (4.8%)*
    Wiper & True Winter Rye (5.2%) (keg)
    Pig & Porter Love Medicine (6.0%) (keg)
    Brew By Numbers 08-03 (6.6%) (keg)
    Siren Broken Dream (6.6%)
    Weird Beard Safe Stout (7.7%) (keg)*

    Plenty of filler and no killer despite the fancy names listed above, and I was surprised to come to the conclusion that my beer of the week is a widely-known brand - Adnams Ghost Ship - enjoyed at Iver's homely Stag & Hounds; a real testament to the cellarmanship (I'm not sure that's even a word) which saw a superbly frothing pint keep its foam cap throughout and each sip maintain the intended hop bitterness. Shame on all those pubs where I've come across and been served this beer merely as a 'token real ale'...

    Yorkshire and adjacent counties,ancient and modern.No dark 'uns, unfortunately.

    Marston's-Pedigree 4.5% abv. Workmanlike, old school.
    Wensleydale-Semer Water 4.1%abv.Very pale,citrus driven pale ale.Good.
    Black Sheep-BaaBaa 4%abv A pale ale,nettley hops.
    Black Sheep-Best Bitter 3.8% Two iterations of this:1)acorns, and 2)remarkably drinkable.
    Yorkshire Dales-Butter Tubs 3.7%abv Reliably pale and hoppy session bitter.
    Yorkshire Dales-Muker Silver 4% pale, not as austere as before.Rounded.
    Binghams-Twyford Tipple 3.7%abv. Best beer of our week in Yorkshire.Three dimensional amber bitter.Blackcurrant hops, plenty of malt.
    Revolutions-EP 3.9% abv.Thin and pale,sweetish finish.
    Timothy Taylor-Landlord 4.3%abv Dependable,but not what I would have chosen on the day.
    My BOTW-Bingham's Twford Tipple. My first meeting with a beer from this award winningbrewery, and very impressive.Taken at possibly my all time favourite pub:The Cover Bridge Inn

    Twisted Barrel God's Twisted Sister. A cracking smooth stout that finises the night off nicely. In The Baum of course.
