    Wimbledon Brewery's XXK in The Prince Alfred. Notes of red berries, spice and caramel were sufficiently muted so as not to be detected without the prompt. Not a bad drop, but so it should be at £5.10 a pint!

    Timothy Taylor Landlord
    Wantsum Heart Of Darkness
    Lytham Blonde
    Lytham IPA
    Purity Bunny Hop
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Hop Back Entire Stout

    First place easily goes to the Entire Stout, Its always been a good beer and on this evidence remains so.

    Harlow,Croydon,Daventry and Borough Market.

    Burning Sky -- Aurora *
    Mc Mullens -- Bootwarmer
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Adnams -- Ghost Ship
    Titanic -- Plum Porter * (3PT)
    Bedlam -- Golden Ale
    Leyden -- Rammy Rocket *
    Hop Stuff /Barbarian -- Jolly Cooperation Sour IPA *(keg)

    BOTW goes to Hop Stuff/Barbarian Jolly Cooperation taken in The Rake.It certainly was sharp but not overpowering and the IPA complexity came through.Drinkable at 6% as long as you can cope with sour .Just glad it wasn't my round.

    Next week a major session in The Cask and an annual Hertford Pub Crawl,should be large.

    So often mentioned on these pages, but I have to go for Titanic Plum Porter, in Croydon's George yesterday and again later in recently improved Claret & Ale. A whoosh of juicy loveliness, distilled plum!

    Very pleasant to briefly bump into BF and son, and Palace pal, in the George, also my ex-next-door neighbour Brian and son, all taking some anaesthetic before going to Selhurst Park - well done for breaking the 'without Zaha' curse chaps..!

    Good to see you Jim,hope the darts went well.Ending the curse resulted in an impromtu visit to The Rake and BOTW,but the Plum Porter was also very good and necessary.

    Good week for me, largely based on an annual Christmas wander round Skipton, despite the best efforts of Northern Rail.


    Wishbone - Tiller Pin. *
    Bingley - 1848.
    Wilde Child - Enfant Terrible.*
    Turning Point - Sleeping Giant.*
    North Riding - APA.
    Roosters - Baby Faced Assassin.*
    Bingley - Rhubarb Saison.
    Beer Monkey - Blond.
    Timothy Taylor - Golden Best.
    Wilde Child - California Love.
    Ilkley - Mary Christmas.
    Five Towns - Sweet Thing.
    Imperial - Stout Wi' Nowt Tekken' Out.

    Firstly, an honourable mention for the Enfant Terrible - great flavour for a 3.1% beer. However, the crown goes to Sleeping Giant, a porter with hints of spice. Sampled in The Narrow Boat.

    BOTW goes to a particularly well kept Bass.
