    Quiet week hence BOTW is Poppylands Sepoy (bottle). Described as an Indo-American IPA and brewed with both curry and kaffir lime leaves. It worked for me and at 5% was eminently drinkable.

    Decent week for me. With Mrs a&h being on leave, I actually managed three sessions. Pretty rare these days.

    North Riding - Session Pale v35.*
    Bad Seed - Ratau.
    Thornbridge - Beerkeepers.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Empire - Italian Job.
    Salamander - Dark Monk.
    Tigertops - Hop Seeker.*
    Wigan Brewhouse & Five Towns - Fascination.
    Five Towns - Owt 'll Do.*
    Hilltop - Golden Ale.
    Magpie - Silver.
    Little Critters - Incubator.
    Little Critters - Ambassador.
    Ridgeside - Parkside.
    Horbury - First Light.
    Tigertops - Peti Novice.
    Great Newsome - Holderness Dark.
    Sunbeam - Shepherds Delight.
    North Riding - NE IPA.*
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Tigertops - 4Blonde.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.*
    Abbeydale - Piracy.

    Easy winner was the Hop Seeker, a pale ale with an incredibly long bitter finish. Some Tigertops beers have been a bit below par of late, but this was right back to their best. Wonderful stuff.

    A very small list this week due to abandoning days out on Tuesday and Thursday because of the heat.

    Hilltop Golden Ale 4.1%
    Tigertops Peti Novice 4.5%
    Ossett Excelsior 5.2%
    Five Towns Fascination 5.5%
    Fernandes Double Chinned IPA 5.5%
    Theakston's Old Peculier 5.6%
    Little Critters Nutty Ambassador 6.0%


    Only the Hilltop Golden Ale was in poor condition, I'm going for the Fernandes Double Chinned IPA as tried for £3.35 at the Fernandes Tap.
    The Nutty Ambassador appeared to be an attempt to recreate the taste of Ferrero Roche chocolates and I thought was quite successful but I'm not sure I could have managed a second and third.

    As your list largely chimes with mine, I've a good idea where you visited: Wakefield Beer Exchange, Black Rock, The Hop, Black Horse, Harry's Bar and Fernandes Tap! I only had a half of the Nutty Ambassador, but that was enough. Even then, I didn't know whether to drink it, or drizzle over a slice of toast.

    Almost correct, I didn't go to the Black Horse and the decent OP was in the Spoons. I would have popped in the Old Printworks but was put off by all the BT & Sky Sports banners.
    I was tempted to make the Nutter BOTW as it was excellent and a good temperature but really it was just too sweet.

    Lots of fruity hoppy beers this week but this one stood out from the new English Trappist brewery.Bottle and glass bought by my thoughtful daughter
    Mount St Bernard -Tynt Meadow Belgian style but quality.
    (there must be a pun about animals and sex with that brewery name but I don't get it)
