    Reasonable...
    Hopback GFB
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Purity Pure Gold
    Fullers Southern Star
    St Austell Cousin Jack
    Windsor & Eton Kohinoor IPA
    Malinsons Nelson Sauvin
    Wild Weather Sub Lime
    Elusive Spectres Lair
    Siren Yu Lu
    Siren Bourbon Milkshake

    With out a doubt BOTW is Siren Bourbon Milkshake, a Bourbon barrel aged Milk Stout at a dangerous 11.0%, naughty but very nice.

    Decent week for me, variety wise, based on the micro-pubs of Halifax.

    Acorn - Royal Oak Pale.
    Bingley - Azacca.
    Stockport - Stock Porter.
    Bingley - Blantyre.
    Brew York - Jarsa.
    Anarchy Brew Co - Quiet Riot.*
    Salopian - Propaganda.*
    Sunbeam - New Dawn.
    Ticketybrew - Coffee Anise Porter.
    Cmrw Ial - Pocket Rocket.
    Ticketybrew - Spring IPA.*
    Bingley - Winter Warmer.
    True North - Blonde.
    Acorn - Black Oak.
    Doctor Morton's - Rabbit Punch.
    Pictish - Liberty.
    Magic Rock - Ringmaster.
    Elland - 1872 Porter.

    Barely a cigarette paper between the Propaganda and the Spring IPA, but the former just edges it.

    Hardly worth bothering this week as I was working, just managing a cheeky session on Easter Sunday

    Daleside - G&P
    Taylors - Landlord
    Durham - White Amarillo
    Fernandes - Pekko
    York - Ghost


    Once again it's a dark beer, York (Centurion's) Ghost
