    A reasonable week:

    Langton Thomas Lift
    Titanic Plum Porter*
    Salopian The Bends*
    Dog House New England IPA*
    Dog House Cappuccino Stout*
    Millstone True Grit
    Oakham Bishops Farwell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    Some good beers in there but BOTW Salopian The Bends stood out. A 5.2% tropical IPA - right up my rue.

    Boating around the South Midlands,some good sessions.

    Great Oakley -- Delapre Dark
    Titanic -- Plum Porter * (>3PT )
    Salopian -- The Bends *
    Doghouse -- New England IPA *
    Doghouse -- Cappuccino Stout *
    Millstone -- True Grit *
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell *

    The Bends has already had a nomination and it was great,and Plum Porter get's enough accolades so BOTW was Doghouse New England IPA,a complex brew with a lot going on during their tap takeover of the Crafty Banker.

    Not a bad week with all of these tried in South Wales

    Brain's Dark 3.5%
    Brain's Bitter 3.7%
    Pilot Revolver 4.0%
    Brain's Rev James Gold 4.1%
    Pilot Gold 4.4%
    Pilot Black Storm 4.5%
    GWB Gimme Smoke 4.5%
    Tenby Hang Ten 4.6%
    VOG Flying Hellfish 4.6%
    Tiny Rebel Espresso 4.6%
    Tiny Rebel Cwtch 4.6%
    Brain's Bragging Rights 5.0%
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft 5.2%
    Elgood's Greyhound 5.2%
    Crafty Devil Cry Baby (keg) 5.3%
    Hopcraft Pub Crawl Brawl 5.5%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Crafty Devil Feed My Frankenstein (keg) 6.5%
    Abbeydale Black Mass 6.66%

    However, the winner is from England and goes back to Abbeydale's earliest days when their beers all had a name with a religious theme. I've only come across Black Mass a few times and in Cardiff's Head Of Steam it had very little sweetness but was expensive at £4.60.

    Oakham Scarlet Macaw and Bad Seed Citra Pale Ale at the Craft Beer Co - both new to me, the Scarlet Macaw probably being the favoured of the two.

    Powderkeg PK IPA*

    Some really nice beers this past week and several really nice pubs, not least The Square And Compass and The Wonston Arms both on Saturday. BOTW is a new one for me , a Devonshire beer taken in Dorset, Powderkeg PK IPA, at 6.0% the strongest of the week and very flavoursome.
