    Muirhouse - Magnum Mild.*
    Morton Collins - Wintersett Gold.
    Great Heck - Treasure IPA
    Tring - Moongazing.*

    Both the mild and the Moongazing were excellent. I don't see many Tring beers in my neck of the woods, but I was impressed with this ruby ale featuring Citra and Chinook hops.

    Mumbles Hop Kick
    XT 2 (Pale)*
    Abbeydale Deception*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    A toss up between the XT2 and BOTW Abbeydale Deception. I thoroughly enjoyed the Deception which just had that bit extra depth of flavour. Both very welcome on a hot day.

    A visit to the Scottish Borders and a day in West Dorset and East Devon provided this :-

    Palmers Copper Ale 3.7%
    Box Steam Summer Buzz 3.8%
    Black Sheep Best Bitter 3.8%
    Broughton Hippopotamus IPA 3.8%
    Knops East Coast Pale 3.8%
    Dorset Brewing Citrus Maximus 4.0%
    Jennings Cumberland Ale 4.0%
    Broughton Dark 'N' Cloudy 4.4%
    Palmers Dorset Gold 4.5%
    Knops Musselburgh Broke 4.5%
    Wolf Woild Moild 4.8%
    Stewart Black IPA (Bottle) 5.0%
    Edinbrew Industrial 5.0%
    Stewart Celtman 5.0%
    Vibrant Forest Mosaic 5.0%
    Palmers 200 5.0%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Stewart First World Problems (Bottle) 6.2%
    Stewart Cauld Reekie (Bottle) 6.2%
    Stewart Radical Road (Bottle) 6.4%
    Stewart Radical Road (Keg) 6.4%

    The winner is the Stewart Radical Road either keg or bottled. The cask in the Borders was pretty dismal all round.
    It was nice to visit a couple of Palmers pubs after a gap of at least twenty five years. Although their beers are still old school they were vastly better and more diverse than I remembered.

    Despite some great beer on the PuG Crawl, this one definitely passed the three pint test Tollgate - Ashby Pale in Tap at no 76
