    Only a modest list this week although every single one was in good condition and at least had some merit.

    Brunswick Caramild 3.5%
    Joules Penny Pincher 4.0%
    Derventio Winter King 4.0%
    Wincle Wibbly Wallaby 4.4%
    Adnam's Mr Feathers 4.9%
    Gadds Number 3 5.0%
    Exit 33 Azacca IPA 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Harbour Harbour India Pale Ale 5.2%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%



    For the first time in ages a Wetherspoon pint gets the nod and it's the Kelham Island Pale Rider for £2.15 at the William Shenstone in Halesowen. Even the chavvy parents who had come in for just a drink or two with their screaming toddlers and two rampaging brats didn't put me off.
    With the apparent downturn in my local Spoons it's nice to find some good beer in their outlets as the Gadds in Lichfield was also pretty good.

    Decent week for me.

    North Riding - US Session IPA v30.*
    Great Heck - Voodoo Mild.*
    First Chop - POD.
    Harveys - Armada.
    Five Towns - Warszawa.
    Five Towns - Raven King.*
    Revolutions - Life in a Northern Town.
    Bradford - Winter Stout.
    Ossett - South Pacific.*
    Horbury - Toffee Oatmeal Stout.
    Arundel - Pickled Mouse.
    Woodfordes - Nice Try.
    Fernandes - Cherry Chocolate Stout.
    Exit 33 - Hop Monster.
    Chin Chin - A-OK.
    Empire - White Lion.
    North Riding - Mosaic Pale.*

    The North Riding beers were excellent as usual, but it was the Raven King (porter) and Voodoo Mild that really seemed to hit the spot, this week. Very little between the two, but the latter just shades it. A smooth, easy drinking mild (4.3%).
