    A fairly6 quiet week for me :-


    Sambrook's Session Pale 3.4%
    Salopian Luna 3.8%
    Salopian Treasure Trove 4.0%
    Welton's Allotment Bob 4.5%
    Sambrook's Junction 4.5%
    Salopian Sixth Mass 4.7%
    Salopian Golden Thread 5.0%
    Welton's Sun Dialer 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Salopian Kashmir (keg) 5.5%
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild 6.0%
    Salopian Automaton (keg) 7.0%


    The Sambrook's Session Pale is worth a mention, I've always found their beers a bit pedestrian and would normally swerve a beer with this low an ABV. I was surprised to find a refreshing pale beer with a good hop flavour, a lot better than most of their other beers.
    The winner however is the Salopian Treasure Trove as tried at their excellent brewery bar for £2.80. Unsurprisingly it's a very hoppy pale.

    Decent week, variety wise, but I'm beginning to despair how expensive Leeds city centre is becoming in some of the better beer pubs.

    North Riding - Aussie Sessions.
    Magic Rock - Rapture.
    Manchester Brewing - Kir Bier.
    Kendricks - Boudicea.
    Kirkstall - Three Swords.*
    Abbeydale - Moonshine.*
    Hop Studio - Pale.
    Rudgate - Grease Monkey.
    James & Kirkman - Commodore.
    North Riding - Citra Pale.*
    Oakham - Citra.*
    James & Kirkman - Liquorice Stout.*
    Marble - Bitter.
    Thornbridge - Windle.

    Not much in it between both the Citras and the stout, but as the J&K hasn't been nominated before, I'll go with that.

    Welcome to my world! I reckon Manchester is as bad, I was thinking of visiting the Marble Arch but when I saw the prices quoted in BF's review I quickly abandoned that plan.

    I remember when you did a few 'spoons in Leeds and commented on big city prices. I think I was quite sceptical at the time, but I've definitely joined the club!
