    I've had a very quiet week prior to heading off for Holyhead tomorrow so wasn't expecting to post for this week. Just one visit to the Wanstead George gave this :-

    Lymestone Stonecutter 3.7%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Enefield Coppermill 4.8%

    The winner is ELB Cowcatcher (£2.19) although the Stonecutter was surprisingly good for a beer that would normally fly under my radar.

    BOTW ELB Cowcatcher

    A better week beer wise but one stood out more than some illustrious rivals

    Ilkley - Tribus Lupulus
    Ilkley - Pale Ale
    Magic Rock - Inhaler (Keg)
    Brew York - Tonkoko
    Roosters - Helter Spelter (Cask)
    Roosters - Helter Spelter (Keg)
    Bath Ales - Prophecy
    Beer Monkey - Rogue Blonde
    Adnams - Ghost Ship
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild
    Eagle Crag - Pale Eagle
    Sunbeam - The Storm
    York - Ghost

    BOTW - Sunbeam - The Storm (a 7% "heritage" porter)

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

    A decent week in Banbury and Bethnal Green,high on quality.

    Loose Cannon -- Instigator *
    Brew Buddies -- Mosaic Pale
    Kent -- Prohibition (key keg) *
    Unity -- Collision IPA (key keg) *
    Roosters -- Big Country *
    Nobby's -- Plum Porter
    Bone Machine -- Vostok Fuel (key keg) *
    Ilkley -- Spring * (3PT)
    Cloudwater -- DIPA citra BBC mosaic (keg)
    Fourpure -- Graduation (keg)

    BOTW goes to Unity Collision IPA on fine form in The Bailiff's Tap .Tropical fruits,distinct bitterness and dangerously drinkable for 6.2%,a very fine summertime drink in hot weather.

    Next week nothing much on.

    Similar list to Mr F's above:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Loose Cannon Instigator*
    Brew Buddies Mosaic Pale
    Kent Prohibition (keg)*
    Unity Collision South Coast IPA (keg)*
    Roosters Big Country Transatlantic Pale Ale*
    Nobby's Plum Porter*
    Boss Brewing Blaze
    Castle Rock Elsie Mo*

    Some good ones there and like Mr. F, I thoroughly enjoyed the Collision IPA but BOTW goes to Castle Rock Elsie Mo. Better than I remember it and very drinkable and refreshing at 4.7% on a warm afternoon.

    Weald of Kent


    Essex,that London and Kent

    Dark Star-Hophead 3.8%abv:Initially mellow, then followed by the expected burst of hops.
    Dark Star-Sunburst 4.8%abv:Sweetish pale ale.
    Adnams-Southwold Bitter 3.7%abv:Not a patch on former seaweedy glories.
    Lacon's- Encore 3.8%abv:Pale gold.Gooseberries,delicious pale ale. A new beer from a revived brewery,new to me, but fascinated by for ages.
    Mighty Oak-Maldon Gold 3.8%. Decent golden.
    Siren Craft-Liquid Mistress 5.8%abv: Molasses,roast chestnut, cinders.Too warm. Another beer from a brewery new to me.
    Three Sods-Trade Union Pale Ale 4.5%abv:Workmanlike Pale. Hedge fruits. Yet another new combo.

    My BOTW-Lacon's Encore,fairly closely pursued by the Three Sods.

    A good beer week

    Goffs Cheltenham Gold
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Hop Back GFB
    Green Jack Golden Best
    Navigation Black IPA
    Oakham Citra
    Fourpure Easy Peeler
    Gipsy Hill /Eebria Peddlar Session Beer
    Brew By Numbers 11/05 Citra
    Moor Dark Alliance
    U Brew Mega Hippo
    Anspach & Hobday The Black Citra Sour
    Thornbridge ENA
    Thornbridge Green Mountain NE IPA
    Thornbridge Melba Peach IPA
    Signature Roadie
    Southwark Cascade IPA
    Hivers IPA
    BrewDog Punk IPA

    Many contenders plus a few beers missed out as some my note taking started to lack in Bermondsey.

    Tough choice but BOTW is Anspach & Hobday The Black Citra Sour taken in a railway arch of course.
