    Slim pickings this week and the default winner is something I'd never tried before, but this hoppy IPA was in great shape, taken at The Earl of Camden:

    A very compact list this week.
    Dark Star American Pale Ale
    Purity Pure Gold
    Flowerpots Peridge Pale
    Hopback GFB
    Meantime London Pale Ale

    The easy winner is Dark Star American Pale Ale , taken on quiz night in The Crooked Billet.

    Kirtlington,Oxford and N7.

    Rebellion -- Roasted Nuts *
    Rebellion -- Smugglers
    Burning Sky -- Plateau
    XT -- 13
    Animal (XT) -- Panda *
    Siren -- Broken Dream Breakfast Stout
    Shiny -- New World
    Mondo -- Dennis Hopp'r IPA * (keg)
    Cronx -- Yallah Mild

    BOTW was Animal (XT) Panda in decent form in The St Aldates Tavern during a short and disappointing crawl around Oxford.

    The odd duplicate from above here:

    Rebellion Roasted Nuts*
    Beavertown Gamma Ray (keg)
    XT 13 Pacific Red
    Animal Panda*
    Siren Broken Dream
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    BOTW Rebellion Roasted Nuts. Deep brown, nicely balanced and bitter enough to suggest another which gave it a solid pass of the three pint test.

    Not many beers taken this week but this was easily the best Half Moon Charlie & the Chocolate Factory a chocolate MILD.

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

    Pretty quiet week for me, also.

    Vocation - Life & Death.
    Ilkley - Fireside.*
    Empire - White Lion.
    Magpie - Raven.*
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Ainsty - Angel.
    Phoenix - Monkeytown Mild.
    Nogne O - IPA. (bottle)

    The L&D (BOTW, last week) was a little more subdued in this week's sample, so it paved the way for the Citra to take the honours (again).

    Rother Valley-Black Ops 3.8%abv:A 'Black Pale Ale'.Hop-forward, not roasty.Black currants.An excellent beer from a brewery I've long felt to be under appreciated.
    Old Dairy-Uber Brew 3.8%abv:Straw.Grassy hops.Yum.
    Holler Boys-Beast of Bevendean 4.3%abv.This iteration is a rye red ale on cask dispense.Not really to my taste.

    Blackjack You Bet 4%. Rob at Blackjack brews this occasionally to use up bags of hops.

    No idea what he put in this latest version, but it was very good in The Baum.
