    Sorry for the late submission. I was in Sheffield and forgot.

    Bedford and Old Street.

    Adnams -- Ghost Ship *
    Brewhouse & Kitchen (Bedford) -- Intrepid
    Brewhouse & Kitchen (Bedford ) -- Invarsity *
    B&T -- Dragonslayer
    Siren -- Suspended in Ekuanot
    Fullers -- ESB
    Purity -- Mad Goose
    Late Knights -- Porter *
    Kansas Avenue (Hydes) -- Zesty Jester *
    Sharp's -- Doom Bar

    A mixed bunch but BOTW went to Late Knights Porter in very fine nick in The Three Crowns despite coughing up a lot of coin to enjoy it.

    Next week not much on the horizon.

    Not much choice for me as everything near me is either Greene King, Fuller's or Young's but I managed a pint each of two trial brews this week:

    Reunion Ales Minimalist

    Reunion Ales Isotonic Gentleman's Sports Drink (4.7%).

    The latter was quite interesting but wouldn't recommend drinking it before taking part in sporting activity, despite the name!

    Reasonable week for me, with a couple of new pubs also bagged on a flying visit to Headingley.

    Vocation - Chop & Change.
    Ilkley - Pale.*
    Ilkley - Crossroads IPA.*
    Roosters - Parts & Labour.
    Black Iris - Bajan Breakfast.
    Bad Seed - Afterparty.
    Black Iris - Divine Elements. (Keg)*
    Two by Two - Pineapple & Mango Saison.*
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Townhouse - Barney's Stout.
    Wild Weather - Seredipity.

    Some interesting new beers sampled, but the winner is an old favourite. I love the flavour from the Chinook, Centennial and Nelson Sauvin hops in this beer. Sampled at Woodies

    Kent.Including a new pub!

    Alechemy-Ritual PA-4.1%abv:Grassy hops,orange essence. A bit sweet. New brewery,though.
    Angels and Demons-ADH-Me-5.2%abv:Tried this in 3 formats,today's-cask-was the best.Solid,dependable beer.
    Larkin's-Traditional-3.4%abv: Not as mellow as I've come to expect.

    My BOTW: Angels and Demons-ADH-Me. A fine APA style beer from a brewery that seems to be on top form, if one glosses over the whimsy on label or website.Taken at This Ancient Boro' ,reopened as a pub after 50 years a Chinese. I remember it as a pub, but was fourteen when it closed.

    Quite a few interesting beers for me this week
    butcome bitter
    sussex best
    northern monk -eternity
    northern monk/lees -session ipa
    and BOTW
    Thornbridge-strawberry lucaria a(although if the 3 pints of Bass I had had been cooler then it would have won)

    A small but varied selection:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Brewhouse & Kitchen Braxator
    Brewhouse & Kitchen Invarsity*
    Banks & Taylor Dragons Gold

    The Dragons Gold, as with so many of B&T's beers was a worthy contender for BABOTW but the Ghost Ship was deeply appreciated on a warm evening.
    BOTW Brewhouse & Kitchen Invarsity. Never been to a B&K before so this IPA brewed in Bedford was a pleasant surprise.
