    I got a few more beers in than I was expecting, most were halves though.

    Hop Back GFB
    Perridge Pale
    Dark Star Green Hopped IPA
    Three Castles EPA
    Three Castles Grand Heritage
    Magpie Eighth Is A Wish
    Revolutions Swoon
    Ramsbury Mockingbird and Mosaic
    Cross Bay Vesper
    Little Ox Filthy Rich

    The Magpie beer was disgusting(to my taste), I should have guessed there would be Cinnamon involved in a Pumpkin spiced amber ale.
    The Revolutions Swoon was gorgeous, a chocolate fudge milk stout.
    There can though be only one winner,Dark Star Green Hopped IPA, still the classic taste it had before, a man in my condition shouldn't be drinking 6.5% beers I guess but It's only around for a short time once a year so I had to force a pint and a half down, It was easy.

    Just a handful of beers, this week.


    Titanic - Steerage.
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Tigertops - Ready Mix.
    Horbury - Chinook.
    Hawkshead - 5 Hop.*

    Having not tried the 5 Hop for ages, I'd forgotten how good it was. Sampled in The Hop, Wakefield.

    .....The Revolutions Swoon was gorgeous, a chocolate fudge milk stout.

    I think you probably got more beers in than anyone was expecting. Glad things are normal(ish), albeit on one level.

    With Revolutions Brewery being just six miles down the road from where I live, Swoon is quite a common sight in the local ale houses and was a semi-permanent fixture at the much missed Beer Exchange. I've tried it several times and just can't get on with it and this is from a man who loves chocolate. Similarly, I struggle with Saltaire's Triple Chocoholic. Definitely horses for courses and all that.

    One Mile End -- Jazz Police (can)
    Mad Squirrel -- DDH Pale (can)
    Rat -- Rat Hot Chilli Peppers
    Crouch Vale -- Amarillo *
    Abbeydale -- Absolution *
    Old Pie Factory -- American Pie *
    Phipps NBC -- Green and Gold

    BOTW by a short head was Old Pie Factory American Pie,a new brewer for me and a very good strong West Coast Pale with some hints of pie tastes; biscuity and lemon.On top form in The Malt Shovel during a rock music themed beer festival.

    Next week looks very quiet.

    A few new ones for me last week, a mix of pub visits and bottles at home:

    Post Road Pumpkin Ale - Brooklyn
    Summer Saison - Runaway
    Fresa - Thornbridge
    Strawberry Lucaria - Thornbridge
    Chocolate Milk Stout - Shiny
    Valkyrie APA - Rudgate
    Veltins Pilsener - Brauerei VELTINS
    Whistle Belly Vengeance - Summerskills
    Ginger Stout - Ticketybrew
    Duvel Tripel Hop Citra - Duvel Moortgat

    Most of these were very drinkable, and a bit close to call really, but the Duvel Tripel Hop Citra just about gets my Beer of the Week award.

    Last week was quiet for me :-


    Adnam's Nut Brown 4.0%
    Orkney Northern Light 4.0%
    Exmoor Exiles Weizen 4.2%
    Fownes A Mernmaid's Tale 4.8%
    Hop Back Summer Lightning 5.0%
    Ludlow Stairway 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Titanic Plum Porter Reserve 6.5%


    I'm going for the Plum Porter Reserve. Being a big heavy porter I didn't find the plum flavour so overpowering as it tends to be in the standard one. It was £3.20 in the Wolverhampton Keg & Comfort where the Fownes one ran it close.

    I love stouts and porters but not sure about choc beers .Didn't like Swoon much and Triple choc was less good.
