    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    As predicted a short list,

    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Dark Star Greenhopped IPA
    Dark Star Hophead
    Longdog Golden Poacher
    Milestone Azacca Gold
    Twisted Oak Slippery Slope

    The Slippery slope was quite nice this afternoon but BOTW is Dark Star Hophead, available again in my local after an absence of nearly two years, It will unlikely be as good as it originally was but is still a very good session beer.

    Gentle week but decent quality:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Jo C's Knot Just Another IPA*
    Norfolk Brewhouse Moon Gazer Ruby Ale*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    BOTW Norfolk Brewhouse Moon Gazer Ruby Ale. Something of a BBB but it hit the spot for slaking a thirst and slipped through the 3 pint test with ease.

    A week spent on home turf gives a small list :-

    Empire Moonraker Mild 3.8%
    Bedlam Brewski 3.9%
    Colchester Metropolis 3.9%
    Goody Good Life 3.9%
    Rudgate Monster Mash 4.0%
    Bingley Goldy Locks 4.0%
    Cairngorm Nessie Monster Mash 4.1%
    City Of Cambridge Hobsons Choice 4.1%
    Portobello All Saints Ale 4.2%
    Goose Eye Golden Eye 4.5%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    Goody Goodness Gracious Me 4.8%
    Burton Bridge Stairway To Heaven 5.0%
    Enefield London Porter 5.5%

    Few of these were outstanding and a few were pretty rubbish but the winner is the Rudgate Monster Mash at the local Rose & Crown beer festival for £3.80.

    Decent week for me.

    Titanic - Raspberry Wheat.
    Fernandes - Wakefield Pride.
    Horbury - Tiramisu.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    York - Centurion's Ghost.
    Thornbridge - Woodlands.
    Tigertops - Breakfast Stout.
    2 Roses - Wentworth IPA.
    Jolly Boys - Jolly Collier Porter.
    Beer Studio - Burnished Gold.
    Dr Morton's - Mandarin Claw of Death.*
    Wilde Child - Siege of Khartoum.
    Roosters - Simcoe.*
    Three Fiends - Misfit.
    Naylors - Treat.

    Very little between the Mandarin and the Simcoe, but I think the latter just shades it.
