    Predictably a quiet week :-

    Windsor & Eton Silent Knight Of The Garter 3.8%
    Crouch Vale Brewers Gold 4.0%
    Red Squirrel Resolution 4.2%
    Moncada Notting Hill Blonde 4.3%
    ELB Walthamstow Beer Green Hopped Pale (bottle) 4.5%
    ELB Walthamstow Beer Green Hopped Dark (bottle) 4.5%
    Brentwood Toblerone Stout 4.5%
    Salopian Kashmir 5.5%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Dark Star Imperial Stout 10.5%


    The easy winner is the Dark Star Imperial Stout at the annual ritual in the E17 Rose & Crown. It was £5.80 on Xmas Eve and £6.00 on Boxing Day. I got a free half pint on Boxing Day from a geezer who was collapsing into a black hole and thought he should immediately go home! The ELB bottles were a result of the so called IS and were expensive but pleasant enough.

    I was in Cornwall over Christmas so their breweries dominate my list.

    St Austell - Cornish Best
    Skinners - Cornish Knocker
    Sharps - Sea Fury
    Padstow - Padstow Pilot
    Cornish Brewery - St Blazey Bitter
    St Austell - Tribute
    Goulds Cider - Miss Trellis' Cider
    St Austell - Proper Job
    Bass - Bass Premium Ale
    St Austell - Hicks Strong Ale
    St Austell - HSD
    Sharps - Sharps Original
    Robinsons - Old Tom
    Hardy & Hansons - Rocking Rudolph
    Healy's Cornish Cyder Farm - Rattler Original
    Ossett - Nervous Turkey
    Tring - Abacus

    Out of that lot my BotW is going to the Bass, largely because it was on gravity dispense and I always think that makes it taste better.
