    A reasonable week, variety wise, but very little that was truly exciting.

    Blackhill - Jet.
    Stancill - Summit.*
    Horbury - JFB Chinook.
    Oakham - Bishops Farewell.
    Ashover - Hydro.
    Horbury - Tiramisu Porter.*
    Elland - Amnesia.
    Small World - Harvest Muse.
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild.
    Fernandes - Grainiac.

    The Tiramisu Porter was the pick of the bunch, brewed on site at the Brewers Pride, Ossett.

    Atherstone,Hertford and south west London,a decent week.

    Oakham -- Citra *
    Frothblowers -- Midland Red *
    Church End -- Stout Coffin
    RedWillow -- Feckless
    Crouch Vale -- Simcoe
    Farr Brew -- Our Greatest Golden
    Tring -- Drop Bar
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell *
    Oakham -- Inferno
    Oakham -- JHB *
    Adnams -- Ghost Ship
    Roosters -- Code Red

    BOTW goes to Oakham Bishops Farewell on immaculate form at The Mansion House,and only £3 per pint on their happy hour which lasted until 7.30pm on a Friday evening .

    Next week a short break In Bruges,there will be some minor sampling along with sightseeing .

    Not a bad week :-

    Lacons Encore 3.8%
    Adnam's Mosaic Pale 4.1%
    Shiny Happy People 4.2%
    Downlands Old 4.4%
    Downlands Hop Contract 4.4%
    Great Orme Red Dragon 4.5%
    Nelson Baggywrinkle Brown 4.5%
    Abstract Jungle Casual Stout 4.6%
    Turning Point Disco King 4.6%
    Lacons Affinity 4.8%
    Peerless Red Rocks 4.8%
    Totally Brewed Passion Fruit In The Face 4.8%
    Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter 4.9%
    South Hams Pandemonium 5.0%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Shiny Tombstone 5.5%
    Castle Rock Screech Owl 5.5%
    Dukeries Ard As N'ales 5.9%
    Oakham Blue Skies IPA 6.0%
    Gun IPA 6.5%


    The Oakham Blue Skies is an obvious candidate but I'm picking a weaker one the Downlands Hop Contract as tried for £3.50 at the local Rose and Crown beer festival. It's the usual pale hoppy thing that won't be to the taste of some!!

    Yorkshire,points West and North:
    Brown Cow -Ledsham Sessions 3.6%abv: Pale and zesty.Delicious.
    Stod Fold-Dark 4.8%abv: Bible black roasty porter.A grand seasonal beer-what I really look for in Yorkshire.
    Yorkshire Dales-Buttertubs 3.7%abv:Fruity zesty pale ale.
    Black Sheep-Best Bitter 3.8%abv:Unfashionable, but really vibrant . I was pleasantly surprised by how much this has improved over recent years.

    A minimal but interesting week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Elland 'Ell and Back
    Beer Lovers DIPA a la vida (bottle)
    Beer Lovers LLOP (bottle)

    Beer Lovers is a microbrewery based in Alcudia, Mallorca and both their LLOP (IPA) and DIPA were excellent and would stand against the best competition here.
    BOTW Beer Lovers DIPA a la vida. A proper, flavoursome and moreish 6.9% DIPA.
