    Purity Mad Goose*
    Purity Pure Gold
    Gloucester Gloucester Gold*
    Gloucester Kiss My Grist*
    Wye Valley Golden Ale
    Wild Weather Beyond The Pale
    Wild Weather Serendipity*
    Twickenham Sundancer
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop*
    Orkney/Belhaven Kittiwake
    Downlands PAPA*
    Dark Star Greenhopped IPA*
    Oakham Citra*
    Wylam Hickey The Rake*
    Belhaven Bridge To Nowhere

    Some very good beers amongst a little tedium.
    There can be only one winner though, BOTW Dark Star Greenhopped IPA . A modern classic in fine fettle, enjoyed in Cobbetts.

    A trip to Birmingham next Saturday may throw up something of interest.

    This week saw a rampage through all the W Yorks Spoons I'd not been to plus one micropub :-


    Hook Norton Cathcarts Xtra Pale Ale 4.2%
    Elland Chinook 4.6%
    Robinson's Trooper 4.7%
    Saltaire Galaxy Pale 5.0%
    Shepherd Neame Bishop's Finger 5.0%
    Small World Thunderbridge Stout 5.2%
    Goose Eye Pommies Revenge 5.2%
    Goose Eye Over And Stout 5.2%
    Daleside Monkey Wrench 5.3%
    Little Critters Chameleon Simcoe 5.5%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Phoenix Wobbly Bob 6.0%
    Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout 6.0%
    Acorn Gorlovka Imperial Stout 6.0%
    Oakham Green Devil (Bottle) 6.0%

    The Jaipur is the obvious candidate but I'm going for the Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout as tried in a couple of JDWs for just over two quid a pint. It's a strong stout with a hint of cherries. Most of the W Yorks JDWs seem to be pretty good with plenty of Locale options.

    East Sussex, Surrey.

    Larkins-Traditional. 3.4%abv:Leafy hops. Harsher than remembered.
    Crafty Brewing-Crafty One.4.2%abv:Modern style pale ale. Some mineral quality.From a brewery new to me.
    Bedlam-SMaSH 4.4%abv.Single malt, single hop-not sure of identity of either.Amber,kitchen herbs,stone fruit.
    Salopian-Treasure Trove 4%abv. Resinous hops,mangoes.Golden with vim.From a brewery new to me, strangely enough.As I expected from Salopian's reputation.

    A tight race between the Salopian and the Bedlam, but my BOTW is Bedlam's SMaSH.

    A quality week:

    Bristol Beer Factory Sorachi
    Red Willow Wreckless*
    Bollington Oat Meal Stout
    Marble Puwaka Waka (keg)*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Ape Ale*

    A tight call between the excellent Wreckless and always moreish Ape Ale.

    BOTW Blue Monkey Ape Ale. A deliciously complex and ridiculously drinkable IPA at 5.4%.

    Golden Promise barley malt and Mosaic hops according to the website. Sounds just like my sort of thing.

    Sadly, no pub for me, this week.

    Ah, Mosaic;thought it might be. Golden Promise is a good old fashioned spring barley:didn't know it was still grown.Couldn't find that info on the website last night-think the slugs had eaten our broadband.Better today.
