    Local and a bit of Surbiton.
    Purity Pure Gold
    Purity Mad Goose
    Purity UBU
    Red Cat Scratch
    Red Cat Prowler Pale
    Wild Weather Cry Of Upstarts
    Beat Ales Raver
    Kelham Island Zombies Of The Stratosphere

    A reduced list as I'm currently in a cycle of lots of work and little play, next day off is the 7th of Oct.
    The Wild Weather effort was good, I was hoping the Kelham beer would be as interesting as it's name, It wasn't.
    BOTW is Purity UBU in absolute sublime condition taken in a pub 10 minutes walk from my doorstep. (half an hour back).

    London and in and around Bicester for the 100% Oxfordshire challenge:

    Hook Norton Hooky (3.5%)
    Loose Cannon Gunner's Gold (3.5%)
    Tring Side Pocket For a Toad (3.6%)
    Butcombe Rare Breed (3.8%)*
    Marble Pint (3.9%)*
    Bank's Blazin' Fury (4.1%)
    Fuller's London Pride (4.1%)
    Meantime Yakima Red (4.1%)
    GK Starry Night (4.2%)
    Sharp's Atlantic (4.2%)
    Chiltern Beechwood Bitter (4.3%)
    Goff's Fallen Knight (4.4%)
    Robinson's Dizzy Blonde (4.4%)
    Spey Valley David's Not So Bitter (4.4%)*
    Adnam's Ghost Ship (4.5%)
    London Beer Factory Summer Session Ale (4.6%)
    Bespoke Brewing Money For Old Rope (bottle) (4.8%)
    Darkstar Sunburst (4.8%)
    Five Points Railway Porter (4.8%) (keg)
    Sharp's Sea Fury (5.0%)

    More well-kept beers than not this week, even amongst the nationals on the list (the GK Starry Night at Bicester's White Horse was surprisingly good, although the Ghost Ship at the George Tavern in London was dreadful). This week's rosette goes to something that isn't my go-to style of beer, but again goes to show you what wonders well-kept beer can have on your palate: there was a hint of sweetness within the bitter taste - not sure on the name of the beer though...

    I was born and bred in Sale, a dreary suburb. Better now for pubs than it was in the 1970s.
    Ok, maybe just for one......................
