    As I didn't manage to get to get to the pub once whilst in Essex (don't ask) The Cheeky Pheasant is my BOTW. Mind you if it was based purely on volume drunk it would go to Morland 'Speckled Hen'. I drank so many bottles, on Fri & Sat, I lost count!

    I'll try and get the reviews on here shortly.Next time I move the boat from Mirfield ,I will have my sons with me and the good wife is none too keen for me to encourage the younger one into the wicked ways of drinking real ale,so there will be little pub action on the trip up to Standedge Tunnel and then through the flesh pots of StalyVegas.

    After a week that involved a lot of Courage Best I made a last minute bid to find something a bit different on Sunday evening and got myself a Great Heck beer that I'd been hoping to find some day - so my BotW is Dark And Very Enjoyable

    Great Heck Brewery have just taken over O'Donoghue's in Wakefield, as their first pub. I'm rather hoping that the very popular 'DAVE' will be a regular beer, Dave!

    Quite an easy choice as I haven't had many this week, probably drank most decent beers with Bucking Fastard and his crew, one of whom might agree with me about Saltaire Chocoholic

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Unbelievably, still haven't tried it, but looking forward to the day, having read all the reviews. A small crumb of comfort is the fact that Asda started selling the bottled Cascade Pale Ale recently.

Have all three of course, although it turned into four as I spotted RCH East Street. On the way home I encountered a couple of Riders from Sheffield looking a little Pale and a Landlord named Timothy. An excellent evening although I didn’t feel too good the next morning.

    So unless I find anything remarkable this weekend my BoTW will probably come from one of the above
    I did find a nice Nethergates Essex Beast on Saturday but my BoTW goes to Springhead Roaring Meg

    For me it was Rebellion Blonde 'enjoyed' in the Back of Beyond JDW in Reading whilst watching England beat Slovenia. Well the beer was enjoyable the match wasn't !

    I spent a few days in Latvia this week and was surprised to find that they had quite a lot of good beers in their bars - mostly dark beers - and I was sorely tempted to nominate one of these, but given the lovely weather we've been having, it would feel wrong to go with a dark beer, so my BOTW is Thornbridge Wild Swan (as tried at the Cask, Pimlico); a White Gold Pale Ale and a fine summer session beer if ever I saw one.
