    Hop Back GFB
    Timothy Taylor Landlord
    Twickenham Pale Lady
    Dark Star Not Into Yoga
    Moor Revival
    Torrside I Am Curious Lemon
    Goffs Lancer
    Stockport Centaurus
    Wantsum Black Prince
    Tollgate Hackney Blonde
    Tollgate Red Star IPA

    Most of week the Red Star IPA has been nailed on but pipped at the post last night by Wantsum Black Prince, a very lovely, almost stout like Mild and worthy BOTW. Both enjoyed in The Alfred on different days.

    A modest week in South London.

    Wimbledon -- SW17
    Robinsons -- Trooper Light Brigade


    and BOTW ,yet again Burning Sky Aurora * (>3PT) in perfect nick and now a permanent ale at the top bar in The George.

    Next week a few unreviewed pubs in The Fens,where it can be hit and hope on the ale front.

    Ah, great minds think alike, Moby. It was BOTW for me, when I tried it. I commented at the time it had a richness that belied its strength. Lovely stuff.

    Good week for me, including one of my favourite Sunday afternoon crawls.

    Fernandes - Barley Promise.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Lacons - Charter.
    Fernandes - Blue Lady.
    Fernandes - Polaris.*
    Quirky - 1 Hop Wonder.
    Nook - Oat Stout.
    Nook - Berry Blonde.
    Mallinsons - Cascade.
    Abbeydale - Wanderer.
    Titanic - Cappuccino Stout.*
    Wigan Brewhouse - Kicker.
    Bad Seed - Juice Freak.
    Stancill - Black.
    Great Heck - Christopher.*
    North Riding - Cascade.
    North Riding - Peanut Butter Stout.
    MVB - Panther.
    Harbour - Little Rock IPA.*

    Several contenders in that list, but the Christopher (flavoured with Columbus hops, geddit?) just takes it.

    Interesting week, could have been any of the dark beers or the Oktoberfest beer but it's Timothy Taylors 1858 Brown Ale that caught my tatse buds.

    Goose Eye - Black Moor
    Salamander - Hallelujah
    Hacker-Pschorr - Oktoberfest Marzen (bottled)
    Ascot - Starting Gate
    North Riding - Rum & Raisin Mild
    Turning Point - Rising Tide
    Revolutions - Final Countdown
    Saltaire - No5 Stout
    Bricknell - Chocolate Porter (bottled)
    Taylors - 1858 Brown Ale
    Atom - Jennsen's Lens
    Atom - Dark Matter
    Terrapin/Wadworth - Terrapin (something) Bliss*
    Camerons - Strongarm
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild


    *had in Wetherspoons but the price ticket was covering the name, it looks like a "beer festival" beer but isn't on the list I have.

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

    Insert "Naked" instead of "something"
