    A trip to Scotland saw off the remaining Scottish JDWs and a day in the Wolverhampton area yesterday provided some welcome decent beer :-

    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%
    Windswept Blonde 4.0%
    Banks's Sunbeam 4.2%
    Wibblers Genesis 4.2%
    Fyne Ales Hurricane Jack 4.4%
    Young's Special 4.5%
    Orkney Dark Island 4.5%
    Holden's Castle Class 4.6%
    Morton Essington IPA 4.8%
    Redcastle Tower IPA 4.8%
    Joules Kolkata 5.0%
    Banks's Sleeping Giant IPA 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Long Man Wild Man 5.2%
    Backyard Penda Black IPA 5.5%
    Fyne Ales Sunset Boulevard 5.6%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%
    Wooha IPA 6.2%
    Kelham Island Mind Control 6.9%

    The easy winner is the Kelham Island Mind Control which was truly outstanding for £3.50 in the Wolverhampton Great Western. I've had it before but it had taken such a control over my mind that I had forgotten about it.

    BOTW Kelham Island Mind Control

    One of those rare weeks where nothing was particularly exciting.

    Great Heck - Trafalgar.
    Titanic - Cappuccino.
    Fernandes - Black Chalice.
    Ossett - Sorachi Sunset.
    Roosters - High Tea.
    Fernandes - Polaris.
    Fernandes - Triple OOO.

    If nothing else, I learnt I really don't like the flavour of Sorachi hops (a synthetic, almost bubblegum, taste). I also struggled with the Cappuccino. I'm sure I've had this before, but I don't remember it being so artificial tasting. Maybe I'm just getting my 'Bah, Humbug!' head on in plenty of time for the approaching siege of Christmas.

    Felinfoel-Double Dragon-4.2%abv Tried for the sake of nostalgia.Malt led and soulful.
    Evan Evans-WPA-4%abv Sweetish pale ale:good condition, but not to my taste.
    Evan Evans-Warrior-4.4%abv. A taster.On gravity from a cask at full tilt on the bar.Ruby ,malty best bitter.
    Derby-Triple Hop-4.1%. Northern Brewer, Challenger and Goldings.Peppery,herbal hops.this pale ale selling well.
    Gower-Gower Gold-4.5%abv. Zesty Golden Ale.Green leaf hops.
    Coles Family-Dylan Thomas-4.8%. Dark, but not bible black.Fruity,smoaky,creamy head.Aged in wooded casks before despatch.Not really to my taste,for a lunchtime pint, but in good condition.
    Harbwr Tenby-M.V.Enterprise-4%abv.Zesty.Summer fruit.Welcome pale ale.
    Kingstone-Tewdric's Tipple Ale-3.8% abv-Zesty.Sturdy session bitter.Herbal hops.

    All these beers were new to me ,from new breweries, apart from Tewdric's Tipple,which was also tried last week. None of them were really outstanding,but my BOTW is Kingstone's Tewdric's Tipple.
