    Westerham-Scotney Green Hop 4%abv:Hmmm. Green Hops, Green Apples. A fresh cask,but I wasn't sure.Grew on me, though.
    Tonbridge-American Pale 5%abv: This has much improved since I first tried it.Succulent, oily hops.Hint of that trademark farmyard ethos.
    Old Dairy-Copper Top 4.1%abv: Decent rustic nutty dark bitter.
    My BOTW-Tonbridge American Pale, taken at Larkins' Alehouse

    Only got out once ,quizzing ,and had by default BOTW Mc Mullens Rivertown Brewing Illustrious besides AK in The Hare,Harlow.

    Next week boating to Atherstone and a trip for an Oakham fix in The Mansion House should make the week more respectable.

    Most of these are Spoons festival beers :-

    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.8%
    Theakstons Pink Grapefruit Ale 3.9%
    Hogs Back Farnham White 4.0%
    Rudgate Green Hop Monster 4.0%
    Roosters Pistol River 4.0%
    Maxim Azacca 4.3%
    Vocation Search & Rescue 4.5%
    Charles Wells Banana Bread Beer 4.5%
    Greene King Old Nutty Hen 4.5%
    Holden's Castle Class 4.6%
    Yorkshire Dales (?) North Grain 4.7%
    Brewsters Seventh Heaven 4.7%
    Adnams Younh Henrys Newtowner 4.8%
    Hook Norton Haymaker 5.0%
    Titanic Red Indian Pale Ale 5.0%
    Truman's Dark Side Of The Moon 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Vale Steampunk 5.1%
    Inveralmond Diracha 5.2%

    The easy winner is the Neepsend Citra IPA as tried for an expensive £4.20 at the Little Ale House in expensive Harrogate. I should mention the Theeakston Grapefruit one which I thought worked well and wasn't pink.

    Just a Friday teatime session, this week.

    Castle Rock - Session IPA.
    Rat - Ilkla Moor Baht Rat.
    Fernandes - China Red.
    Abbeydale - Salvation.*
    Great Heck - Shankar IPA.*
    North Riding - Citra Pale.*
    Revolutions - Swoon.
    Harveys - Sussex Best Bitter.

    Easy winner was the Shankar IPA, a big hitting IPA (5.9%) brewed with lots of American 'C' hops and dry hopped with Columbus, Williamette and Cascade. As an added bonus, the two and a half pints I sampled were pulled by my elder daughter! Unfortunately, she didn't pay for them, but you can't have everything.
