    A few days in Liverpool and a day in Somerset gave this list all tried in Spoons :-

    Little Beer Little Kahuna 3.9%
    Rooster's YPA 4.1%
    Weeetwood Eastgate 4.2%
    Titanic Cappuccino Stout 4.5%
    Lytham Stout 4.6%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Big Bog Will O' The Wisp 4.7%
    Great Western Tangerine 4.7%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Titanic Captain Smith 5.2%
    Long Man Wild Man 5.2%
    Burton Bridge Festival Ale 5.5%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Big Bog Quagmire 6.0%
    Peerless Full Whack 6.0%
    Peerless Tectonic 6.2%

    Two disappointments were the Burton Bridge Festival which seemed to be a malty brown ale and the Long Man Wild Man which showed no resemblance to the JDW tasting notes as it was pale rather than amber and bland for a 5.2% beer.
    The Peerless Tectonic is the winner as tried for £2.15 in the Liverpool Lime Kiln.

    A bit slim on beers in the past week.
    Purity Pure Gold
    Hopback GFB
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Oakham Endless Summer
    Siren Hit The Ice
    Siren Crema
    Siren Fevergrass
    Butchers Tears Monster Soup (SB)

    The Butchers tears was interesting but BOTW was Siren Fevergrass in The Nags Head.

    Another quiet one:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Church End Goats Milk
    Church End Fallen Angel*

    Years ago I remember Goats Milk as being a low strength, unexceptional, boring, brown beer. It is now unchanged at 3.8% but pale and gently hoppy and having tried it alongside Fallen Angel, which I've never minded, it feels like a dialled down version in terms of both strength and flavour. It's perfectly drinkable on a warm day but I'm struggling to understand it's CBOB win.

    A visit to Huddersfield provided the usual winning combination of choice and quality. Some great beers, this week.

    Salopian - Oracle.*
    Bosun's - Tell No Tales.*
    Abbeydale - Voyager IPA (No.4).
    Deya - Oatmeal Porter. (Keg)*
    Vibrant Forest - Session Pale. (Keg)*
    Small World - Longmoor Pale.
    Anarchy Brew Co. - Blonde Star.
    Horbury - First Light.
    Empire - Moon Rakers.*
    Hawkshead - ITI.
    Marble - Tuckerlovsky IPA.
    Wild Beer - Millionaire.*
    Vibrant Forest - Zuur Rhubarb.
    Mallinsons - Mosaic.
    Bristol Beer Factory - Seven.
    Hawkshead - Lakeland Gold.
    2 Roses - Sprocket.
    Jolly Boys - Jolly IPA.

    Very hard to pick a winner. Both the Tell No Tales and Moonrakers were excellent flavoursome milds, belying their strength, but the Salopian Oracle was just heavenly. Sampled at the ever reliable King's Head.
