    I will start with Havant Started, no pun intended. It is from my very local micro brewery, now being trialled at my local.

    A very pleasant & easy drinkable bitter, light gold colour with just a hint of sweetness to take the sharpness out

    I could drink this one anytime

    PS, just spotted the brewery does free local deliveries, 18 for 5 litre box / 9 pints] could this be the World Cup solution for me?

    Could be a solution but, if buying in a box the equiv of 1.80 per 500ml bottle, sounds expensive to me. I know we don't get the ludicrous get-shedded-for-nowt deals that are thrown at lager drinkers several times a year but, say, Morrisons 4 btls for 5.50 would provide variety of style & strength for 1.38pb, albeit the website's crap & they don't deliver.

    On the basis that I may not get to a working PC before the week is out, I will get my BotW nomination in early - Exmoor Stag at the Rutland Ale House in Hammersmith. I only popped in to use the urination station and ended up putting more in than emptying out!

    After my self imposed real ale drought last week in Majorca it was good to get back on the ale trail again last night.

    A pint of Green Mill Big Chief followed by several pints of Mallinsons Centennial. What a good beer, it's got a chance this week.

    Same here this afternoons few Beers will be the last till at least Monday night as I'm on late turn duty till Monday so no more Beer.

    This out of this weeks limited choice the best I had was Springhead Brewery Roaring Meg 5.5% ABV I found it very easy drinkable and could easy have had a few more its very deceptive for strength.

    Had a few beers in Leeds and 'headquarters' yesterday: Summer Wine 'Helios', Nethergate 'Umbel Magna', Brains 'Reverend James', Roosters 'YPA', Phoenix 'West Coast IPA', Anglo-Dutch 'Sarah Barnes', Fernandes 'Rum for Cover'. Despite being served too cold, the sublime Rooster's is easily in the lead at the moment.

    As I'm on call then in Masham and stuck on Black Sheep/Theakstons at the weekend, I think I can nominate my BOTW already, drunk in the wonderful Nags Head in Reading... I knew on the first mouthful, Triple fff Moondance.

    I would also like to nominate "Cleavage of the Week" as the young barmaid in the Horse and Jockey in Reading, as they say she made a happy man feel very old .

    Next week's may be Batham's MILD so watch out in the Black Country..... I'm on the way.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
