    A visit to West Devon and Cornwall meant I spent a lot of time waiting for infrequent trains or sitting on various buses :-

    Keltek Lance 4.0%
    Exmoor Exiles Wicked Wolf 4.2%
    Bays Gold 4.3%
    Hanlons Brewers Blend 4.5%
    Black Tor Devonshire Pale Ale 4.5%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Bays Breaker 4.7%
    Cornish Chough Fire Raven 4.7%
    South Hams Daddies Real Sauce 4.7%
    Dartmoor Jail Ale 4.8%
    Ringwood Fortyniner 4.9%
    Hanlons Stormstay 5.0%
    Cornish Crown Porter 5.2%
    Burton Bridge Festival Ale 5.5%
    Theakston's Old Peculier 5.6%
    Cornish Crown Red IPA (keg) 5.9%
    Hunters Black Jack 6.0%

    The winner is the Cornish Crown Porter in excellent condition for £2.29 at the Camborne John Francis Basset, probably the best JDW in Cornwall.

    BOTW Cornish Crown Porter

    A more limited week than hoped for:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    Marstons Bass*
    Steaming Billy Billy
    Lymestone Cherry Stone*
    Beowulf Dragon Smoke*

    BOTW Lymestone Cherry Stone. An interesting pale beer tasting distinctively of cherry but with a sensibly dry finish which invited a successful pass of the three pint test.

    A few new ticks, but a pretty uninspiring bunch, on the whole.

    Ramsbury - Flint Knapper.
    Revolution - Candidate.
    Ramsbury - Baby Bella.
    Stancill - Stainless.
    Kelham Island - Waterloo Sunset.
    Five Towns - Breaking Glass.
    Dancing Duck - DCUK.
    North Riding - Citra Pale.*

    Head and shoulders above the rest was the ever reliable Citra Pale, sampled in Harry's Bar, Wakefield.
