    Had some very good beers this week, but one stands head and shoulders above all the others - Crouch Vale Amarillo, as tried at the Old Fountain, Old Street.

    A bit of a hefty beer weekend with Dartford Festival on Friday, Whitstable Brewery tirp on Saturday and my usual Sunday frollicks. I will opt for the Oxfordshire Maypole at the Wat Tyler in Dartford, firstly because it was an excellent pint and secondly becase I can't really remember the Festival or Brewery beers with any clarity! An equally hefty week coming up with 4 gigs and my trek to Scotland on Friday. Could be some inetresting selections as we head for the great Scottish World Cup remote pub crawl.

    Unfortunately, the rest of the week went downhill beer wise, just poor Landlord and tired Leeds 'Pale'. Therefore, my BOTW is Fernandes 'Sportsman's Stout'.

    Mine is going to RCH breweries Pitchfork, I didn't really enjoy it much if I am honest, but did find the grapefruit flavour very intriguing, hence points for surprising me.

    Whilst looking at beers in Sainsburys last week a random guy suggested I try the Hambleton Ales Taylors Tipple, have to admit it did seem quite nice - but I was desperate for a beer when I had it so need to try another to decide if it was really worthy of BOTW.

    So on balance I will go with the Bristol Beer Factory Sunrise which went down a treat on a hot Friday afternoon.

    Sounds like latent 'hophead' tendencies to me. That citrus and spice hit can become addictive.

    Not really a grapefruit fan, hence the didn't really enjoy it. But it was amazingly like drinking grapefruit juice, very easy to drink. Was a lovely reminder of just how different they can get ales to taste.

    Two good London crawls last week, especially Friday evening from Holborn to Leicester Sq. with the weather as it was.

    Not many different beers though as most of it was the standard London offerings.

    But probably the most enjoyable pint, and patriotic to boot when considering the forthcoming kick about, was the Brodies English Best at the Cross Keys in Covent Garden

    ... Brodies English Best
    You must've missed Edgar Wallace & Castle Gann, two of the better ale choice venues in that area.
    Talking of Brodies, I'm considering the William IV for the Algeria game - big screen & all beers 1.99 (even the 7.2% Porter!), could be dangerous.
