    Kent-Session Pale Ale 3.7%abv. Always top notch at Black Dog. Delicious, minty hops.

    Not a bad week but difficult to find an obvious winner as they all had some merit :-

    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%
    Black Country Shalers 4.0%
    Cwrw Ial Pocket Rocket 4.0%
    Goose Eye Black Moor 4.0%
    Dukeries Black Swan 4.2%
    Rooster's Yankee 4.3%
    Salopian Lemon Dream 4.5%
    Arbor MEGS Bomb 4.7%
    Slaters Citrus 4.8%
    Milestone Honey Porter 4.9%
    Stonehenge Danish Dynamite 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Plain Ales India Plain Ale 5.2%
    Springhead Roaring Meg 5.5%
    Castle Rock Screech Owl 5.5%
    Navigation Saviour 5.5%
    Oakham Green Devil 6.0%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Downton Chimera IPA 6.8%

    I'm going for the Roosters Yankee, a beer I've tried many times in the past but was top notch at the Beer Engine micropub in Skipton.
    I managed to find the final JDW festival cider in the Wolverhampton outlet, just as well as the beer choice was rubbish as ever with 3 on from Shropshire Woods. The local branch have deleted it from the 2017 GBG!
    That's my lot with cider now unless it gets hot again.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Quite a minimal pub week, in fact two.
    Purity Pure Gold
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Mallisons Waimea
    Oakham Citra
    Tiny Rebel Mojita Sour
    Lagunitas 12th of Never
    Robinsons Beardo IPA

    Oakham Citra is an all time favorite, but not the best Iv'e had on this occasion and the Mojita Sour was interesting but challenging, however, BOTW is going to be Lagunitas 12th of Never , in a can from Morrisons drank/drunk at home.
