    Did you not get to the new JDW at Bitterne? Shurely that would have been a priority?

    A pretty pathetic list for me due to going to two isolated Spoons and (partly) going down with a cold on a visit to Notts.



    Rudgate Patriot Pale 3.6%
    RCH Goldbine 3.8%
    Pheasantry Red Rye 4.6%
    Stonehenge Great Bustard 4.8%
    Jenning's Snecklifter 5.1%
    Castle Rock Screech Owl 5.5%
    Black Sheep Riggwelter 5.9%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Little Critters Hazelnut Milk Stout 6.0%
    Little Critters C Monster 6.5%


    I'm going for the Little Critters Hazelnut Milk Stout which wouldn't suit many people as it was confectionery in a glass. I don't think I could manage three unless it involved a substantial wager.

    BOTW Little Critters Hazelnut Milk Stout

    Kent:the sole beer taken on licenced premises is a still worthy, if somewhat unlikely BOTW-Mobberley Brewhouse Boom Juice 3.8%abv. A tropical pale ale-Kiwi hops innit?-Stone fruit and raspberries, followed by a long bitter finish.Light gold in colour.Not entirely to my taste, but I can see the attraction.

    Greene King -- Abbott
    3 Brewers -- IPA
    Tring -- Pale + Four *
    Mighty Oak -- Slayers Ale

    BOTW goes to Tring Pale + Four ,lots of American hops and plenty of flavour ,on good form in The Old Cross Tavern.

    Just a Friday teatime session, this week.

    Small World - Long Moor Pale.
    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.*
    Fernandes - Two Brewers.*
    Acorn - Zeus IPA.
    Fernandes - Summit.
    Fernandes - Blue Lady.
    Ossett - Dragon Bones.

    I enjoyed the stout, but for sheer drinkability the Two Brewers was the easy winner. Another pale and hoppy 'un from Fernandes.

    A few days last week cycling in the Welsh Marches (Hereford and Salop), drinking mostly local beers;

    Ludlow Gold 4%
    Hobsons Best 3.8%
    Wye Valley Bitter 3.7%
    Ludlow Best 3.7%
    Woods Shropshire Lad 4.5%
    Goffs Lancer 3.8% (pretty poor, but comes from Gloucestershire)
    Arrow Bitter 4% (only available here, where it's brewed)
    Otter Pale Ale 4.9%
    Hobsons Town Crier 4.5%
    Hobsons Dark Mild 3.2%
    Swan Armbreaker 6%
    Ludlow Boiling Well 4.7%
    Joules Slumbering Monk 4.5%
    Ludlow Black Knight 4.5%
    Hobsons Shropshire Stout 4.3%
    Three Tuns Pale 4.3%
    Six Bells Ow Do? 4%
    Clun Pale Ale 4.1%
    Three Tuns Clerics Cure 5%
    Three Tuns Mild 3.4%
    Lancaster English Pale Ale 4.6%

    Only about two or three beers that I didn't enjoy, and only one that I can recall being in not good condition (Three Tuns Pale at a country pub a few miles from the brewery).

    The odd man out was the Lancaster beer, with just time for a swift half between trains in Stockport at the Petersgate Tap. A very nice beer hopped with Bramling Cross, Challenger and Golding. Very more-ish, and any other week would have been the clear winner.

    Beer of the week though was the Hobsons Best in the Crown, Clunton. I was only going to have a half, but it was so good I had another. (That's the only downside to cycling, beer-wise - drinking only halves and limited to one per stop. Luckily I was only two miles from my destination so was able to treat myself!)
