    Just a couple of visits to the JDW London festival so all cask beers were £1.99 :-

    Park Killcat Pale 3.7%
    Redemption American Brown 4.0%
    Enefield Iron Brew 4.2%
    Reunion True Zeal 4.3%
    Sambrook's After Nine 4.4%
    Windsor & Eton Hurricane 4.5%
    Wild Card Ace Of Spades (keg) 4.7%
    Signature Progressive 4.8%
    Southwark Chew-Black-A 5.0%

    I never thought I would have a pint of Wild Card in a JDW but it was a whopping £3.65 and way too gassy.
    None of these were offensive but nothing was really outstanding. I'll go for the W&E Hurricane as tried in the Wanstead George. It also had the best pump clip straight from an Airfix kit!

    Saltaire - Titus
    Kirkstall - Pale
    Briscoe's - Otley Gold
    Black Sheep - Riggwelter
    Hambleton - Black Forest
    Roosters - First World Problems
    Thornbridge - Rocky Road Lucaria
    Wensleydale - Falconer
    Strathaven - Winter Glow
    Eagles Crag - Eagle of Darkness
    Nightjar - Sasquatch
    Salamander - Piccolo Porter
    Nine Standards - Porter

    Oddly a toss up between a dark and a light but the Salamander Piccolo Porter just has it over the Wensleydale Falconer.

    Oakham - Citra.*
    Acorn - Gorlovka.*
    Ilkley - Gregory.*
    Salt - Alpaca.
    Wilde Child - Outside The Box.
    Rat - Mother Rat.*
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Wild Weather - We Bring Scientists, You Bring A Rock Star?
    Yorkshire Dales - Blue Scar.
    Helmsley Brew Co. - Yorkshire Legend.
    Sunbeam - New Dawn.

    Both the Citras were excellent, but I was in the mood for dark beers this week. The Mother Rat, a milk stout, just pipped the Gorlovka, an old favourite. Sampled at The Hop, Wakefield.

    Botw was
    Marco Paulo-American pale ale 5.5 superb beer but I was p*ssed off at paying £5 for a cask beer brewed feet away from the bar in the Owl and Pussycat Micropub.I should have taken note of the price before I bought it.

    Not bad:

    Marstons Old Empire IPA*
    Everards Sunchaser
    Abbeydale Moonshine
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Titanic Plum Porter*
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*

    Any of those starred were worthy BOTWs but this weeks BOTW goes to Marstons Old Empire IPA for being so easy to drink at 5.7%. Dangerous.
