    A little variety this week:

    Morgan's For Ruck's Sake
    Brunswick Railway Porter
    Oakham Dr. Phobia*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Abbeydale Moonshine

    BOTW Oakham Dr. Phobia A nicely balanced, amber 5.2% number with Oakham's trademark bitterness. Delicious.

    Fernandes - Swift One. In the Phoenix, St Helens. A good town for a crawl around the outskirts

    Mainly Hitchin and London.

    XT -- XT13 *
    Adnams -- Mosaic Pale (keg)
    Greene King -- Grubber Pale
    Greene King -- St Edmunds
    St Austell -- Tribute
    Haresfoot -- Old Tiney Plum Porter
    Tap East -- Coffee in the Morning *
    London Fields -- Love not War *
    BrewDog -- Elvis Juice *(keg)
    Magic Rock -- Dark Arts *
    VOG -- Dark Matter

    BOTW goes to a keg beer ,BrewDog Elvis Juice,in their bar on the Bethnal Green Road. Neither too cold ,nor overcarbonated this 6.5% was very drinkable and full of citrus flavours but balanced by a pleasant sweetness.Dont ask how much a schooner cost ,however

    A little more action than expected.
    Red Cat Scratch
    Red Cat Mr M's Porter*
    Long Man Long Blonde
    Kronenbourg (Lager)
    Guinness ( Keg Stout)
    Greene King Yardbird
    Dark Star Hophead Mosaic*
    Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay
    Kew Botanic
    Adnams Mosaic*
    XT 1 (Blonde)
    Wild Weather NW3
    Purity UBU
    Gales Seafarers
    Robinsons Dizzy Blonde
    Ballards Golden Bine
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold*

    The BOTW is the excellent Dark Star Mosaic, I had all but given up on finding this January seasonal variation, but then mid feb I find it in both Cobbets Micropub, and later in the week in the Antelope,both excellent but a little better in the latter pub, but about 80p more expensive, the Adnams version ran it close,also taken in The Antelope, on a different day.

    This week saw a visit to "awkward" Brigg in N Lincs and a rampage around all the S Yorks JDWs not yet visited :-

    Ossett Yorkshire Blonde 3.9%
    Thornbridge Brother Rabbit 4.0%
    Elland Beyond The Pale 4.2%
    Acorn Old Moor Porter 4.4%
    Bradfield Farmers Stout 4.5%
    Tom Wood's Bomber County 4.8%
    Milestone French Cockerels 4.8%
    Kelham Island Black Lightning 4.8%
    Half Moon Robustus Lunam 5.0%
    Acorn Pekko IPA 5.0%
    Ossett Snake Mocha Stout 5.0%
    Dukeries Farmers Branch 5.0%
    Sharp's Sea Spray 5.0%
    Fuggle Bunny Russian Rare-Bit 5.0%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Daleside Monkey Wrench 5.3%
    Milestone Dark Galleon 5.4%
    Little Critters Chameleon Simcoe 5.5%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA (keg) 5.9%
    Blue Bee Born In The USA 6.0%
    Elland 1872 Porter 6.5%
    Little Critters C Monster 6.5%
    Little Critters Imperial Coffee Stout 7.2%


    It was interesting to try Jaipur on both keg and cask on the same day. I marginally preferred the keg at a Spoons but may feel different if I had stayed for more than one. It was 5p cheaper than the cask in the Sheffield Tap. However, I'm going for Little Critters C Monster as tried for £2.65 in the not aptly named Sheffield Woodseats Palace (£2.65) which went down a treat with a large breakfast.

    An interesting week,

    Bad Co - Comfortably Numb
    Thornbridge - Kipling
    Harrogate - ?
    North Riding - Cascade pale
    Kingfisher - Lager
    Bosuns Brewing Co - Bermuda Triangle
    Issac Poad - No 84
    Elland - 1872 Porter
    Rudgate - Jeruselem
    Brew York - Maris the Otter
    Brew York - Little Eagle
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild
    Portobello - Market Porter
    Cobra - Lager
    Saltaire - Blonde
    Bad Co - Wild Gravity
    Marstons - Wainwright
    Moorhouses - Blonde Witch
    Trinity - Belle Vue Blonde
    Taylors - Boltmaker
    Credence - White Session IPA
    North Riding - Rum n Raisin Dark Mild


    BOTW probably should have been the Harrogate beer but it was a one off and I didn't get the name, anyway there's only a fag paper between it and the Rudgate Ruby Mild sampled in the Blue Bell in York so it'll be the Rudgate. The Rum N Raisin was good if you like rum N raisin chocolates but don't drink more than a half at once.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    The annual Wakefield Food, Drink & Rhubarb Festival provided a good excuse to wander round the city's finest, over the weekend, whilst sampling some of the inevitable rhubarb themed beers.

    Vocation - Chop & Change.
    Shiny - Happy People.*
    Otter - Amber.
    Seven Brothers - Ruby.*
    North Riding - Mosaic Pale.*
    Thornbridge - Jaipur.
    Yorkshire Heart - Rhu-Bar.*
    Slaters - Rye IPA.
    Rudgate - York Chocolate Stout.*
    Neepsend - Blonde.
    Ridgeside - Black Night.
    Beer Ink - Double IPA.
    Fernandes - Half Nelson.
    Riverhead - Rhubarb & Rosehip.

    The Rhu-Bar was actually very good. Naturally, it was rather tart, but with a richness that belied its strength at 3.7%. However, a pint was definitely enough! By contrast, the Rhubarb & Rosehip was a step too far. Definitely too much for my palate. BOTW was the very impressive Mosaic Pale, fresh as a daisy, at Harry's Bar. North Riding are rapidly becoming one of my 'go to' breweries.
