    East Sussex: a very quiet fortnight, though I knew March would be thin.However this beer is fair recompense:

    Dark Star-Green Hopped IPA 6.5%abv,taken at the always excellent The Salehurst Halt Thought I'd missed it, this time round.A real stab to the heart-oily, piney hops.Magisterial.

    Not a huge list this week as although I've been out and about I seem to have spent an awful lot of time on trains and buses.


    Woodforde's Wherry 3.8%
    Brain's Rev James Gold 4.1%
    Blue Monkey Centennial 4.3%
    Matlock Wolds Farm Riber Gold 4.3%
    Adnam's Ghost Ship 4.5%
    Woodforde's Norfolk Nog 4.6%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Green Jack Rising Sun 4.8%
    Shepherd Neame Bishops Finger 5.0%
    Hairy Brewers Fear The Beard 5.0%
    Strathaven Winter Glow 5.0%
    Spire Jailbreak IPA 5.4%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Brunswick Black Sabbath 6.0%

    Unusually every single beer tried was well kept this week but obviously some of these are never going to win anything.
    I'm going for a weaker one Blue Monkey Centennial as tried for £3.10 in the Moca bar in Matlock.

    Harlow and N21.

    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord
    McMullens -- Country Bitter
    McMullens -- AK
    Truman -- Zephyr
    Bath Ales -- Gem
    Charles Wells -- Courage Directors
    New River -- Riverbed Red*


    Easy winner of BOTW was New River Riverbed Red on top form in The Orange Tree,N21.

    A visit to Holborn next week should produce a better list of ales.

    Good week for me, including a decent Sunday afternoon session, to celebrate England's stunning victory over the sweaties, on Saturday.

    Fernandes - Octohop.*
    Ilkley - Hanging Stone.*
    Ossett - Silver Link.
    Brown Cow - White Dragon.
    Beer Ink - Stout.
    Elland - Red Rooster.
    North Riding - Ekuanot.*
    Exit 33 - New England Best.
    Revolutions - Grip.
    Abbeydale - Voyager IPA.
    Ilkley - Tribus Lupulus.
    Ridgeside - Granary Pale.*
    Mallinsons - Amarillo.
    North Riding - Hallertau Blanc.*
    Saltaire - Long Day IPA.
    Tigertops - AC2.
    Revolutions - Hex.
    Fernandes - Hopmaster.
    Allgates - Pepper Lane.

    An easy winner this week, in the Voyager. An absolute beauty from Abbeydale, featuring Mosaic, Citra and Centennial hops. Dangerously drinkable at 5.6% and sampled at Wakefield Beer Exchange.

    A heavy work week meant little ale consumed however head and shoulders above the Taylors and Theakstons was Electric Bear Spilt Milk a delightful milk stout, oh God I'm turning into Ena Sharples.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    Shurely more Martha Longhurst? Unless you want to own up to wearing a hairnet down the pub?

    could be worse, Minnie Caldwell ! I have worn more embarrassing things than hairnets.
