    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.

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    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.

    Junction 5, M3 , well fairly close.



    Brains (Craft Brewery) Cafe Phoenix
    Timothy Taylor Landlord*
    Dark Star Hophead
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale*
    Salopian Oracle
    Hattie Browns Moonlite*
    Powderkeg PK IPA*
    Oakham Citra*

    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.
