    A few different locations in the Southeast.

    Greene King -- Yardbird Pale
    McMullens -- Country
    McMullens -- AK
    Crate -- Rye *
    Reunion -- Talwar *
    Blue Moon -- Blue Moon (keg)
    Weird Beard -- Maryana Trench *
    Siren -- Soundwave IPA

    Some good ones sampled and BOTW was Brighton Beir Smoked Porter on fine form in The Old Fountain.A subtle smoked flavour,with a very dry finish and easily quaffable despite it's strength a fine example of the style.

    Next week a short trip to Dorset means a slow week is likely.

    Just the two cask beers this week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Nethergate Augustunian

    The Bishops was, as ever, excellent but was BOTW last week and the Augustinian really doesn't deserve the award.

    BOTW Blue Monkey Chimpagne (bottle) Brewed with champagne yeast and a hefty 10%, this is a an individual and excellent drink. I don't know if they've ever brewed it for cask but can imagine things getting very messy if they did.

    Not a great week, for me either, with just the four tried.

    Raw - Independence.
    Great Heck - Treasure IPA.
    Fernandes - Nelson IPA.
    Rat - Rat-sputin.

    Easy winner was the Nelson IPA, which as the name suggests is made with the wonderful Nelson Sauvin hop.
