    A very average week, but, not too many execrable Xmas brews around, fortunately.

    Roosters - Golden State.
    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Thornbridge - Rattlesnake.
    Colchester - Flaming Gun.
    Tigertops - Honey Bear.
    Rat - White Rat.
    Fernandes - Hophead Pixie.
    Fernandes - Rum for Cover.
    Fernandes - What the Dickens.
    Fernandes - Yule Love It.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*

    Both the Plum Porter and Mosaic were in great shape, but the latter is probably in my top five beers for the year. Just so drinkable.
