    Been layed up with the lurgy most of the week, but managed to squeeze a few in....
    Greene King IPA
    Ilkley Mary Jane
    Bingham's Macchiato Stout
    Bingham's Space Hoppy IPA*
    Red Cat Scratch
    Sherfield Village TBA
    Three Castles Thunder*

    The Stout would be my normal choice from this list but was on the little flat side, having only just remembering the last two Three Castles Thunder takes first place,I could easily drink three pints of it whereas I would struggle with the sweetness of the previously nominated Space Hoppy.

    Enjoyable week ,Croydon,Liverpool Street and Leighton Buzzard,very high quality ale.

    Burning Sky -- Aurora *
    Oakham -- Oblivion
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Oakham -- Scarlet Macaw *
    Oakham -- Black Hole Porter *
    Dark Star -- Hophead
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell *

    Difficult choice but BOTW goes to Oakham Black Hole Porter on great form in The Bald Buzzard ,Leighton Buzzard....one of the best micro pubs I've ever visited with a top guv'nor.

    Next week long overdue revisit to Cask Pub & Kitchen among others.

    A rampage through the West side of Lancashire (what have Lancastrians done to deserve that??) has provided an extensive list.


    Peerless Pale 3.8%
    Moorhouse C & S Ale 4.0%
    RAT White Rat 4.0%
    Cross Bay Sunshine 4.0%
    Fernandes Polaris 4.1%
    Hawkshead Red 4.2%
    Cross Bay Sunset 4.2%
    Rooster's Yankee 4.3%
    Fuzzy Duck Cunning Stunt 4.3%
    Darkwave Odyssey 4.4%
    Vog Dark Matter 4.4%
    Cross Bay Dusk 4.5%
    Old School Headmaster 4.5%
    Flack Manor Black Jack Porter 4.6%
    Lytham Baileys Blinder 4.6%
    Phoenix West Coast IPA 4.6%
    Tiny rebel Juicy 4.8%
    Hawkshead Brodie's Prime 4.9%
    Cross Bay Zenith 5.0%
    Dukeries Farmers Branch 5.0%
    Dunscar Bridge Blissful Blonde 5.0%
    Hawkshead Lakeland Lager 5.0%
    Chapel Street Winter Ale 5.0%
    Coach House Blueberry 5.0%
    Cairngorm Wildcat 5.1%
    Howard Town Shining Clough 5.3%
    Coach House Blunderbuss 5.3%
    RAT Mother Rat 5.5%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Dark Star Creme Brulee 5.9%
    Thornbridge Wild Raven 6.6%

    I think there was some merit in just about all of these but I'm going for a surprise winner. I've never got excited about Dukeries beers but also never been offended. I thought this one was excellent at £2.35 in the Leyland JDW. It's on the national guest list which runs until the end of March so hope to see it again.
