    Just the four this week.

    North Riding - Citra Pale.
    Gadds - Dr Sunshine.
    Great Newsome - Liquorice Lads Stout.*
    James & Kirkman - Empress of India.*

    Easy winner was the Empress, a 6% IPA, aged in 40 year old whisky casks. A big beer with a lovely layer of complexity from the whisky notes.

    Only a small list this week :-

    Dark Star Hophead 3.8%
    Harvey's Best 4.0%
    Nethergate Azzalord 4.1%
    Butcombe 42 4.2%
    Harvey's Heath Ale (Armada?) 4.5%
    Cronx Oreo Cookie Stout 4.6%
    Dark Star APA 4.7%
    Dark Star Sunburst 4.8%
    Peerless Knee Buckler IPA 5.2%
    Peerless Full Whack 6.0%

    I thought the Hophead and Dark Star APA had much more British hop character than last time I tried them.
    The winner is the Peerless Knee Buckler IPA as tried for £2.09 in Liverpool's Lime Kiln.

    BOTW Peerless Knee Buckler IPA

    Weald of Kent


    Kent,West Sussex, London,Essex:

    Kent-Session Pale 3.7% abv. Pretty good considering it being al fresco on a sunny Bank Holiday.
    Harvey's-Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv. Workmanlike.
    Windsor and Eton- Conqueror 5% abv. Roast dominant,grand stuff.
    Bedlam-Phoenix Pale Ale 3.9% abv.Pale,assertive, sappy hops.
    Mighty Oak-IPA 3.5% abv.Old school session bitter;nutty,long citrus finish.
    Mighty Oak-Gemini 3.7%abv. Fair golden ale.
    Mighty Oak-Oscar Wilde Mild 3.7%abv.Bible black, succulent.A winner.
    Beer Studio-Warrior Venture 5%abv. A dark, red ale.Not impressed.
    Sambrook's-Battersea Rye 4.5%abv.Dark,spicy.OK.Surprisingly, I'd not had a beer from them before.

    The Oscar Wilde MILD slightly outscored the Bedlam Phoenix,but I'm often singing its praises, so my BOTW is Phoenix from a new to me brewery over the border in Sussex.
