    Kent:quiet

    Shepherd Neame.Master Brew Bitter 3.7%abv. Sole pint this week:I didn't think I'd bother with BOTW this time, as I've long fallen out of love with Master Brew. However, this was exquisite, mellow, with non of the harshness I'd grown to dislike.

    More time in the West Midlands but no Batham's XXX and more surprisingly no Holden's Old Ale :-

    Olde Swan Ma Pardoes Original 3.5%
    Teignworthy Neap Tide 3.8%
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.9%
    Milestone Comet 4.2%
    Olde Swan Dark Swan 4.2%
    Batham's Best 4.3%
    Flying Monk Jackdaw 4.3%
    Mantle Moho 4.3%
    Olde Swan Entire 4.4%
    Elland Elland Back 4.6%
    Froth Blowers Cloudburst 4.6%
    Salopian Golden Thread 5.0%
    Millstone True Grit 5.0%
    Elland Winter Wonderland 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Finney's DunkelSeite 5.2%
    Gorgeous Ruby Red Porter 5.5%
    Hook Norton Twelve Days 5.5%
    Kelham Island Drinking In The Air 5.5%
    Holden's Dragons Blood 5.6%
    Woods Christmas Cracker 6.0%
    Titanic Plum Porter Reserve 6.5%
    Elland 1872 Porter 6.5%
    Salopian Limerence 6.6%
    Sarah Hughes Snowflake 8.0%

    I'm going for the Salopian Limerence as tried for £3.30 in the shy Segley Mount Pleasant. I found it impossible to tell if it was a fruit beer as it was packed with flavour and aroma. I did get the start of the cask.

    Had a few last week, including some 'crafty' stuff. The Christmas beers are certainly now out in force.

    Oakham - Mk. VII
    Windsor & Eton - Silent Night of the Garter
    Tring - Citra Session
    Salopian - Lemon Dream
    Pope's Yard - Frogmore Bitter
    Windsor & Eton - Roast Chestnut Ale
    Exmoor - Exmas
    Butcombe - Chris Moose
    Binghams - V Old Ale
    Trumans - Zephyr
    New Wharf - DIPA Simcoe, Mosaic & Centennial
    New Wharf - Vanilla Sky
    Brasserie de la Senne - Zinnebir
    New Wharf - Breakfast Stout Bourbon Barrel
    Ringwood - Old Thumper
    Banks & Taylor - Santa Slayer
    Titanic - Plum Porter Grand Reserve Port Infused
    Adnams - Sloe Storm

    The Titanic was interesting. I've had the Plum Porter Grand Reserve before, but this was bottled and marked 'Port Infused'. A mate brought a 2 litre bottle to my local and a few of us shared it. But my BotW goes to Binghams V Old Ale, dark and warmingly fruity.
