    A bizarre week but with one or two fair beers:

    Dark Star APA*
    Southwark Centennial
    Robinsons Magnum IPA
    Salopian Torque*
    Bad Seed Seville Orange IPA*

    BOTW Bad Seed Seville Orange IPA. Delicious marmalade and a real IPA at 6%.

    Dorset,and not much ale.

    Everards -- Old Original *
    Piddle Brewery -- Mad Hare
    Dorset Brewing Co. -- Durdle Door *

    BOTW goes to DBC Durdle Door on very fine form in the White Hart,Yetminster.

    Next week the PuG crawl on the 38 bus should produce many good contenders.

    This week consisted of a journey through Wales and back via Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.

    Rowton Moonstruck Mild 3.3%
    Heart Of Wales Irfon Valley Bitter 3.5%
    Heart Of Wales Aur Cymru 3.8%
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%
    Derby Hop Till You Drop 3.9%
    Green Duck Duck & Cover 4.0%
    Heart Of Wales Bitter 4.1%
    Glamorgan Welsh Pale 4.1%
    Rowton Comet 4.4%
    Heart Of Wales Welsh Black 4.4%
    Heart Of Wales Cambrian Heart 4.5%
    Adnam's Two Brewers Irish Red 4.5%
    Burton Bridge Damson Porter 4.5%
    Derby Altbier 4.5%
    Salopian Lemon Dream 4.5%
    Celt Silures 4.6%
    Elland Mojo 4.7%
    Phoenix Double Gold 5.0%
    Butcombe Brunel Atlantic IPA 5.0%
    Brecon Red Beacons 5.0%
    Cold Black Crib Goch 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Gower Power 5.5%
    Battlefield Sabut Jung 5.8%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Heart Of Wales Innstable 6.8%
    Heart Of Wales High As A Kite 10.5%

    The Duck & Cover I too found to be excellent at £2.90 (discounted) in the Platform Ale House at Albrighton and is the best of the low ABV ones. However, the High As A Kite (£5.00) in the superb Neuadd Arms Hotel in Llanwrtyd wins it. This was my last pint here and caused much amusement to the Hotel Owner / Landlord / Brewer. It's an old school barley wine though not overpoweringly sweet that is just brewed for the winter months so I was lucky to find it still on.

    A flying visit to Huddersfield was the basis of this week's bibbing.

    Empire - Porter.
    Magic Rock - Ringmaster.*
    Empire - Jonah.
    Wishbone - Bandit.
    Copper Dragon - Silver Myst.
    Mallinsons - Nelson Sauvin.*
    Fernandes - Sixty Shillings Mild.*
    Rat - Ratamahatta.
    Rat - White Rat.*
    Rat - King Rat.*
    Rat - Anthrats.*

    No prizes for guessing that a good session was had in the ever reliable Rat & Ratchet. The King Rat was the star of the day, but the Sixty Shillings was also very good.
