    That was exactly my reaction. Sorry ETA, it'll never float my boat.

    Having just spent the weekend in Bath, and drunk a fair bit of this stuff, my BotW goes to Bath Ales Gem.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.

    Well, despite quite a few pints over the weekend, nothing has come close to Mallinsons Centennial, so that's the beer of the week.

    Was hoping to squeeze a couple in yesterday, but unfortunately not to be. Therefore, Mallinson's 'Castle Hill Premium' is my BOTW.

    So that's two votes for a Mallinsons beer this week so far. Keep 'em coming Tara (Mallinson).

    I'll drink to that. I don't think I've had a duff beer from her yet.

    Hmm… last week was not a particular good one, beer-wise and in fact, was somewhat lager-fuelled!

    11 pints over a 3-day period, with an assortment of bottled beverages thrown in.

    Beck’s Vier x 3
    Guinness x 3
    Leeds Brewery Midnight Bell x 1
    Tetley’s Cask x 1 – vile, truly vile.
    Gamers Cider x 1
    Tuborg Lager x 2
    The Nelson Brewery Ballywrinkle Brown Ale (bottled-conditioned) x 1
    The Nelson Brewery Spinnaker (bottled-conditioned) x 1
    Shepherd Neame Masterbrew (bottle) x 2
    Stella Artois (bottle) x 2


    BOTW: Masterbrew. Oh, dear, oh dear, oh dear.
