    Runners & Riders this week

    Theakstons - Best Bitter
    Springhead - Outlawed
    Full Mash - Mangelbrot
    Blue Monkey - 99 Red Baboons
    Hopjacket - The Grifter
    Blackfriars - Porter
    Marstons - Draught Bass
    Welbeck Abbey - Hartley
    Elgood - Golden Newt
    Springhead - Red Special

    Not a lot of anything special and two of them are contenders for BABOTW.
    Head and shoulders above the rest was Hopjacket - The Grifter sampled in Newark's excellent micropub Just Beer .

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Oakham Mandarina Bavaria

    Easy winner is Oakham Scarlet Macaw in good nick at a local pub beer festival here, although the Adnams Cucumelon on keg is an interesting and pleasant drink.

    A modest week in the Essex/Herts border country.

    Mc Mullens -- Rivertown Brewing Citra Chaos
    Mc Mullens -- Country Bitter
    Mighty Oak -- Jake the Snake *
    Greene King -- Ale Fresco
    Hadham -- 18ct Golden Ale


    BOTW goes to Mighty Oak Jake the Snake,refreshing and quaffable in The Black Horse while watching the Champions League Final.As a goalkeeper at school I had some empathy with the suffering.

    Next week another crack at Banbury ,then a Friday in hipsterville.

    It's just as well that I like Harvey's (i.e. Sussex Best, a lot) as that has pretty well been the diet this week on my perambulations in Kent and East Sussex...
