    Disappointingly quiet on the pub front with just Oakham Bishops Farewell and Hop Back Summer Lightening to choose from. Both excellent though.

    Hence, BOTW goes to Marble/Cigar City Brewing - It's Beer (Not Candles). Served from a can and accurately described as a tropical pilsner. Delicious on a warmer day.

    Tickety Brew- Lemon Drizzle 5.2 was one of the best beers I have ever drank.Looked like a pint of orange juice but was amazing.10 out of the 12 people in the Dodo micropub were drinking it
    other opinions are equally valid -my mate Gary had it on Friday night and texted -fruit sludge.

    I'm back in action! Some of these are from a "pilot run" to two local pubs to see if I was up to going to Devon to visit my last seven JDWs in the County.


    Country Life Reef Break 4.0%
    St Austell Tribute 4.2%
    Franklin's Resurrection Pale 4.2%
    Dancing Duck 22 4.3%
    Empire Dangerous Dave American Pale Ale 4.3%
    St Austell Diablo 4.4%
    Bays Trunk Ale 4.5%
    Country Life Black Boar 4.5%
    Reunion Beardtongue 4.5%
    Redemption Hopspur 4.5%
    Great Newsome Hops In the Spring 4.5%
    Wadworth Green Beacon 3 Bolt 4.5%
    GT Ales Battleaxe 4.7%
    Long Man American Pale Ale 4.8%
    Hilden Irish Red Rye 4.8%
    Hydes Kansas Avenue Lonesome Duck 4.8%
    Hanlon's Stormstay 5.0%
    St Austell Hybrid 5.1%
    Dorking Buffalo V2 5.1%
    Black Sheep Pathmaker (tins) 5.6%
    Hunters Black Jack 6.0%



    The winner is the Franklin's Resurrection Pale (£3.85) which struck me as a New World style beer in the local Rose & Crown. It certainly had a superb hop flavour.
    The Black Sheep Pathmaker is a new JDW offering and they do 3 tins (1 litre) for a fiver. It says on the tin that it is hopped with Chinook hops and lots of them but it is gassy. It's a good alternative to the JDW dross as is the Brewdog Elvis Juice but two of them in most outlets only saves 10p and it's cheaper in Tesco.

    Usual suspect stuff for the most part,
    Hop Back GFB
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold
    Flowerpots Bitter
    Goddards Starboard
    Wadworth Horizon

    All beers were in good nick, but the Flowerpots Perridge Pale was equally excellent in two separate locations, here and here, great flavour for a 3.6% session beer.
