    Weald of Kent



    Larkins-Porter 5.2%abv: First sighting of this iconic beer this season.Muscular and dry.
    Dark Star/Fuller Smith and Turner-Hophead 3.8%abv.Hmm,seems a bit 'Northern', not as open as I remember it.
    Tonbridge-Coppernob 3.8%abv.First pint undrinkable:next,from a new cask,lively and earthy.
    Old Dairy-Flaming Embers 4%abv. Roasty amber ale-not my favourite style.
    Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv. Unimpeachable.

    My BOTW-Larkins Porter.

    Frustratingly quiet, this week.

    Timothy Taylor - Landlord.
    Great Heck - Blonde.
    Stancill - Not Dark Yet.
    North Riding - US Session Pale v39.*

    Easy winner was the Session Pale. Would have quickly passed the three pint test, if family commitments hadn't said otherwise.

    Wandering, or wondering, or wandering in.


    This week included the Watford Beer Festival for me, so here are just the highlights,

    Weetwood Ales - Eastgate
    JW Lees - Dragon's Fire
    London Brewing - Rye (the hell) Not?
    Wychwood - Hobgoblin
    Watling Street - Sir Newton Golden Ale
    Leeds - Yorkshire Gold
    Pope's Yard - Frogmore Pale
    Pope's Yard - Frogmore Bitter
    Quantock - QBNZ
    3D Beer - The IP-A Team
    Tydd Steam - Barn Ale
    Wolf - Edith Cavell
    Wolf - Lupus lupus
    Cosmic - Jack Rabbit
    Fierce & Noble - Westcoast IPA
    Daleside - Monkey Wrench

    BotW goes to the Westcoast IPA, 6.5% of American hoppiness.

    NB - Pope's Yard is a young brewery that has recently moved from Watford to the old Frogmore Paper Mill in Apsley (Hemel Hempstead). Concentrating mainly on bottled beers they brewed for cask specially for the Watford Beer festival. Hopefully they will continue as both beers were good, and there is also talk of a Brewery Tap in Watford.
