    Wye Valley Golden Ale
    Wild Weather Beyond The Pale
    Wild Weather Serendipity*

    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.

    BOTW Bridgehouse Cherry Choc Stout
