    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 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.

    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.

    James & Kirkman - Gyle 200.
    Ilkley - Ruby Jane.
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Double Top - History Maker.
    2 Roses - Mosaic.
    Revolutions - Artemis Cold Brew Coffee Porter.
    Mad Squirrel - Koha.

    Cellar Head - Pilot

    Had many excellent beers in Kent, but the above was superb. Only for the fact we had to run for the train, we would definitely have stayed longer in this excellent little micro Old Bay Alehouse
