    A short and not especially well formed list:

    Moongazer Amber Ale
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Brancaster Brewdolph
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Moongazer Hiberno*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    BOTW Brancaster Oystercatcher. I always forget quite how good this is until around halfway through the second. Nips at TT Landlord's heels as a quality session ale.

    Good week for me, almost certainly a reaction to having no pub time during the Xmas hols.


    Tarn 51 - Altofts Blonde.
    Tarn 51 - Rocking Robin.*
    Tarn 51 - Jol.*
    Stancill - Not Dark Yet.
    Small World - Twin Falls.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Half Moon - Dark Masquerade.
    Melwood - Derby Stout.
    Empire - Strikes Back.
    Stancill - Blizzard.
    Stancill - Driving Home.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Bad Seed - On the Juice.*
    Salt - Mockado.
    Rat - Rat Trap.
    Wilde Child - Chimney Blockage.
    Kirkstall - Solitude.
    North Riding - US Session Pale.*
    Fernandes - Kiwi Session.
    Abbeydale - Salvation.*

    The Citra, US Session Pale and Plum Porter were particularly good, but as they've all been nominated before, I'm plumping for the Jol, a 7% impy stout. Sampled at The Robin Hood, Altofts, where the Tarn 51 microbrewery is also based.

    Mini crawl around Maida Vale.

    Elgin & Hopstuff -- Lemon Saison (keg)
    Portobello -- Sauce on the Side
    Sam Smith -- Extra Stout (keg)
    Wimbledon -- Copper Leaf
    Left Handed Giant -- Compulsory Fun IPA * (keg)
    Tiny Rebel -- Imperial Chocolate Stay Puft * (keg)
    Tiny Rebel -- Cwtch

    BOTW went to Tiny Rebel Imperial Chocolate Stay Puft ,A marshmallow porter 9% with outstanding malts and a delicious bitter finish in the keg emporium that is Real Ale.The Compulsory Fun IPA in there ran it very close.

    Next week mainly focussed on the footie for ale options.

    A fairly quiet week :-

    Gadds' Gyle 1664 4.3%
    Titanic Cherry Dark 4.4%
    Windsor & Eton Mandarin 4.5%
    Reunion Midnight Runner 4.8%
    Wantsum Black Pig 4.8%
    Parkway Mad Dog 5.0%
    Goacher's Gold Star 5.1%
    Tonbridge Velvet Raven 5.2%
    Marston's Old Empire 5.7%
    Gadds' Black Pearl Stout (keg) 6.2%

    The winner is the keg option the Gadds' Black Pearl Stout as tried for £5.00 in the inappropriately named Bottle Shop for £5.00. It was silky smooth, not overly sweet and went down a treat. Just what is the point of Guinness?

    Loverly beer! Never tried it on keg or cask, but stock up with bottles whenever I come across them. I think it was originally brewed for a fish'n'chip shop over in Thanet.

    I didn't mention, I think it said it was an Oyster Stout. If you see it on keg don't be afraid to try it as it's very worthwhile. Five quid a pint is expensive but not outrageously so for a 6.2% keg.
