    They've had this one a few times in the E17 Bell and I've found it excellent.

    I agree and especially when Tesco knock a quid off making it four cans for a fiver. My local one also does 4 Elvis Juice for seven quid. I've never been to a Brewdog bar and doubt that I ever will!
    How big is their brewery as all the supermarkets (and JDW) seem to stock it.

    After a visit to Scotland it feels like I've spent a week sitting on a train and few great beers to compensate :-

    Salopian Shropshire Gold 3.8%
    Harviestoun Bitter and Twisted (Bottle) 3.8%
    Sharps Doom Bore!! 4.0%
    Orkney Northern Light 4.0%
    Orkney Dragonhead 4.0%
    Cairngorm Sheepshaggers Gold 4.5%
    Strathaven Claverhouse Red 4.5%
    Harviestoun Schiehallion 4.8%
    Pheasantry Mikado Mild 5.0%
    Stewart Celtman 5.0%
    Adnams New Realm APA 5.2%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Windswept Wolf 6.0%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Broughton Old Jock 6.7%

    The winner is the Stewart Celtman as tried for £2.65 in the Glasgow Camperdown Place, my favourite of the central Glasgow JDWs. The beer is a highly hopped stronger pale beer. I believe they have another one called Celtman.

    BOTW Stewart Celtman

    Only the one this week-Ramsgate Brewery (Gadd's) No 5. 4.4%abv.Surprisingly I'd not had this on cask dispense before, a reassuring malt 'n' biscuit best bitter.Not at all cloying.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Wild Weather Sub Lime*
    Purity Pure Gold
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Wells Bombardier Burning Gold
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop
    Samuel Smiths Extra Stout
    St Austell Proper Job
    Oakham JHB*
    Hopstuff APA
    Belville Picnic Session IPA*
    Weird Beard Opulence *

    The Belville and Oakham beers were very nice but the clear winner was the Opulence , half a pint was enough on the day though for this heavy hitting 10.9% Vanilla Stout enjoyed in The Harp.

    Trent & Mersey


    Birmingham,Selby and London.

    Silhill -- Blonde Star
    Four Pure -- American Pale (keg)
    Purity -- Pure UBU
    Timothy Taylor -- Dark MILD *
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell * (3PT)
    Wolf -- Woild Moild *
    Acorn -- Summer Pale *
    Brown Cow -- Celestial Light *
    Brown Cow -- Indulgence *
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord (3PT)

    Both the Brown Cow ales were very good,but Oakham Bishops Farewell tops them to BOTW,on great form in the Oaka @ Mansion House after the cricket and at £3 during afternoon happy hour 3-7pm that a real bargain.

    Bowland Brewery - hypnotic hopnytic

    Bit of variety this week:

    Wolf Brewery Woild Moild*
    Brown Cow Celestial Light*
    Brown Cow Indulgence
    TT Golden Best
    TT Landlord*
    Salopian Hop Twister*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Everards Tiger

    Some good ones there including the Brown Cow beers and the Landlord but, in something of a departure for me, BOTW was Wolf Woild Moild. At 4.8% it's on the strong side for a mild but isn't overly sweet or malty and has a delightfully dry finish which invites another.
