    A steady week :-

    Hall & Woodhouse K&B Sussex Bitter 3.5%
    Dark Star Hophead 3.8%
    Harvey's Sussex Best 4.0%
    Welton's Spinnaker IPA 4.1%
    Welton's Heatwave 4.1%
    Fuller's London Pride 4.1%
    Bexley / Clarkshaw Mild 4.1%
    Hogs Back TEA 4.2%
    Brain's SA 4.2%
    Whitsable Hull Melon 4.4%
    Arbor S Bomb 4.7%
    Dark Star American Pale Ale 4.7%
    Greene King Abbot 5.0%
    Beerblefish 1853 ESB 5.3%
    Dark Star Revelation 5.7%
    Beerblefish 1820 Porter 6.6%

    The surprising winner (to me at least) is from a brewery that produces loads of beers and can be hit or miss with quite a few misses. It's Welton's Heatwave as tried for £4.10 in the Horsham Stout House, even more surprising as it's a tied Badger house. With three Welton's beers on it has regained the crown of being my favourite Horsham pub and it still opens at 10:00. I thought it was expensive but I bet it isn't the most expensive pub in Horsham. The beer is a low abv pale with a heavy hit of New World hops.

    BOTW Welton's Heatwave

    Hertford,Gospel Oak and Croydon.

    Mighty Oak -- Cascade IPA *
    Tiny Rebel -- XLPA
    Mighty Oak -- Old Man and the Sea *
    Marble -- Pint * (3PT)
    Weird Beard -- Hit the Lights
    Marble -- Tuckerlovsky
    Howling Hops -- House IPA *
    Burning Sky -- Aurora *
    Saltaire -- Citra.

    Honorable mention for Mighty Oak Cascade IPA but just pipping it to BOTW was Howling Hops House IPA,6% with a complex nose and start but as you get used to it,it's surprising how fast it disappears from the glass.Dangerous and in top nick in The Southampton Arms.

    Next week looking quiet.

    Very quiet week.

    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Blackjack - Four of a Kind.
    Five Towns - Raven King.

    Easy winner was the Cascade. Rather disappointed with the FOAK. Having enjoyed Blackjack beers in the past, I found this one a little underwhelming. The four of a kind refers to the Cascade, Chinook, Centennial and Columbus hops used, but apart from the obvious alcohol (6.2 ABV) there wasn't an awful lot going on.

    Kent.Another quiet week.

    Cellar Head:Single Hop Pale Ale-Archer. 4.6%abv. Some confusion at point of sale:the black board said "using Gyle 97 hops", while the displayed pump clip referred to Archer.Google confirmed my suspicion that Gyle 97 hops are a figment of someone's imagination. Anyway wall fruit and a bit sweet.

    Norfolk again:

    Oakham Inferno
    Wolf Lupus Lupus*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Woodfordes Once Bittern
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Woodfordes Volt IPA

    Not a broad selection but the quality in that part of the world is way better than it was even a short while ago.
    BOTW Woodfordes Volt IPA At 4.5% perhaps not a 'true' IPA but a very decent drink nonetheless as many of their specials seem to be.
