    A rather desolate lurgy ridden week with three pub visits to two pubs.

    Flowerepots Perridge Pale
    Reunion Minimalist
    Triple fff Winter Oatmeal Stout

    All three beers were decent but Stout edges it, taken in The Alfred this evening, which I am pleased to see makes Komakino's top ten pubs, it was on my shortlist but competition is fierce.
    Expecting another low key week this week.

    All beers tried in Shropshire, Powys & Cheshire :-

    Ludlow Best 3.7%
    Salopian Shropshire Gold 3.8%
    Fuggle Bunny Cotton Tail 4.0%
    Monty's Best Offa 4.0%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    Robinson's Unicorn 4.2%
    Ludlow Black Knight 4.5%
    Spey Valley Stillman's IPA 4.6%
    Ludlow Boiling Well 4.7%
    Ludlow Stairway 5.0%
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft 5.2%
    Beavertown Gamma Ray (keg) 5.4%
    Monty's Figgy Pudding 5.5%
    Redwillow Faithless 95 (keg) 5.5%
    Dark Star Revelation 5.7%
    Ludlow Whiskey Well 6.5%
    Magic Rock Cannonball (cans) 7.4%



    The Magic Rock Cannonball was a bargain with tow outdated cans for £4.00 in the Salopian Bar but the winner is the Ludlow Whiskey Well as tried for £3.30 at the Ludlow Brewery Tap. This is a strong dark ale with a very pronounced Whiskey flavour. That Innis & Gun stuff is rubbish in comparison.

    Kent

    Tonbridge-Ebony Moon 4.2%abv:I hadn't drunk this since 2011.My loss, a delightful easy drinking 'session'porter,its finer points lost to a streaming cold.Indoors, a can of Harveys Black Stout hit the spot,though I can't really get my head around the concept of Harveys in tin.

    York-Otherside IPA. Clean and hoppy, in Foleys Ale House.

    Had this on a five pub crawl in Leeds and was up against decent beers in the Fox and Newt, North Bar, Duck and Drake, and The Hop.

    Just the one Friday teatime session, this week.


    Bad Seed - On the Juice.
    Riverhead - Butterley Bitter.
    Coniston - Special Oatmeal Stout.*
    Tigertops - Honey Maid.
    North Riding - US Session Pale.*
    Oakham - Green Devil.*
    Stancill - Black.
    North Riding - Cascade.*

    I enjoyed all the highlighted beers, but the Green Devil wins by a nose. Sampled in Harry's Bar, Wakefield.

    Oakham's Green Devil is just edged out by New River's Blind Poet smoked porter, both taken at Hertford's superb Old Cross Tavern yesterday.
