    Best week for quite a while:

    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    TT Landlord

    Yorkshire Heart Get Pithed*
    Cloudwater Extra Special Bitter*

    Northern Monk Heathen IPA (keg)*
    Deya Steady Rolling Man (keg)*

    Thornbridge Tapit*
    Roosters Yankee

    Tough choice with the Fabrick, Tapit and Get Pithed all going down very well.

    BOTW Cloudwater Extra Special Bitter. Just as described as an amber 5.5% bitter. Long may they brew cask beer.

    Good week for me, with a flying visit to Otley, on Friday and my favourite Sunday afternoon crawl.

    Titanic - Black Ice.*
    Saltaire - Titus.
    Brew York - Brew York.*
    Abbeydale - Black Mass.
    Great Newsome - Holderness Dark.
    Oakham - Citra.*
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Burton Bridge - Damson Porter.*
    Salt - Batik.
    Tigertops - Haka Hop.
    Moor - Revival.
    Five Towns - Candidate.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Sandiway - Endo.
    Mallinsons - Calypso.
    Fernandes - Black Voodoo.
    Rat - King Rat.
    Fernandes - Summit.
    Mallinsons - Danger: Hops!

    Some strong contenders, but the Brew York, Brew York - a very tasty APA, quickly soothed the troubled brow after three hours on various buses. Sampled in one of my favourite pubs - The Old Cock, Otley.

    Wandering, or wondering, or wandering in.


    A fairly quiet week, selection wise.

    Dorset Brewing - Jurassic Dark
    Farr Brew - Our Most Potent Porter
    Aylesbury Brewhouse - Pulsar
    Rudgate - Bitter Sweet
    St Austell - Tribute
    Otter - Otter Ale
    Titanic - Black Ice

    BotW goes to the Jurassic Dark, an interesting and tasty dark wheat beer.
