    A good week for variety, but several beers not at their best and a handful that were quite dull.

    Aire Heads - Airelequin.
    Brunswick Brew Co - (Engine Shed Project) Auf Wiedersehen Dave.
    Little Critters - Incubator Chocolate & Raisin Stout.
    Sentinel - Zf IPA.
    Abbeydale - Moonshine.
    Oakham - Citra.
    Magic Rock - Inhaler.*
    Titanic - Cappuccino Stout.
    Wilde Child - Patriot Games.
    Rat - Rat Attack.
    Chin Chin - Take Aim.
    Stancill - India.
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Tigertops - Double.
    Sunbeam - Helios.
    2 Roses - Nailmaker.

    The Mosaic was very good, as usual, but the Inhaler was on fabulous form. Describing itself as a 'juicy pale ale', it features Amarillo, Citra, Equinox, Galaxy, Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Wonderful stuff. Sampled at The Hop, Wakefield.

    BOTW Brasserie d'Achouffe - La Chouffe. A tasty, pale, slightly sweet and recognisably Belgian beer in amongst a fair bit of nondescript eurofizz.

    Mc Mullens -- Country Bitter
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Box Steam -- Piston Broke
    Vibrant Forest -- Cydonia *( >3PT)
    Bad Seed -- Cargo IPA
    Vibrant Forest -- Flying Saucer *

    BOTW goes to Vibrant Forest Cydonia on top form in The Craft Beer Co..Described on the pump clip as an unfined Martian Red Ale,this 4.7%was full of big American hops and was one of the best red ales I've ever had.Beer of the year so far,not sure how much I quaffed.

    Next week squeaky bum time at the footie which will lead to consumption before and possibly afterwards.

    Funky Hop Donkey Funky Lite. Actually brewed at RAW, but whether it's just another string to their bow I don't know.

    Only 3.6%, but with a very hoppy punch, tried in The Baum.
