    Short lists are unfortunately par for the course at the moment,
    Navigation Rebel
    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Ossett Yorkshire Blonde
    Slaters 1 Hop
    Tollgate Old Rasputin
    Great Heck Proverbs 31:7

    All of these were good, but I have to repeat last weeks BOTW taken in the same place just 30 hours or so later , Navigation Rebel, lovely beer.

    My knees have been giving me grief this week which restricted play to three local JDWs :-

    Reunion Opening Gambit 3.8%
    ELB Fox Session Pale 4.1%
    Burton Bridge Porter 4.5%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter 4.9%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%

    I didn't think the keg Punk was as good as the slightly stronger cans. The easy winner is the ELB Cowcatcher for £2.15 in the Wanstead George. I did get to try some Festival gins and the Aber Falls one was the best.

    BOTW ELB Cowcatcher

    Kent and West Sussex.All beer from Sussex this week.

    Cellar Head-India Pale Ale 5%abv.Unfined,not murky.Juicy,fir tree hops.
    Firebird-Parody Session IPA 4.5%abv.Hazy gold,blackcurrants,moreish.
    Harveys- Sussex XXXX Old Ale 4.3%abv.First sighting for this year.Silky,hedgerow berries, superb.
    Bedlam- Hibernation 4.8%.Just a taster:a wheat beer with orange peel and coriander. Better than it sounded.

    First three equally appreciated, but my BOTW is Firebird-Parody .

    Saltaire - Ekuanot.*
    Northern Monk - Mocha Porter.*
    Horbury - Sundown.
    Ossett - Excelsior.
    Great Heck - Voodoo Mild.*
    North Riding - US Session Pale v42.*
    Tempest - Vermont Sessions.*
    Thornbridge - AM:PM.
    Oakham - Tranquility.
    Kelham Island - Night Rider.
    Kelham Island - Licence to Chill.

    One of those weeks where the general standard was very high. I'm plumping for the Vermont Sessions, an IPA made with Simcoe and Mosaic. I've never come across Tempest Brewery before, but I'll be keeping an eye out in future. Sampled in Harry's Bar, Wakefield.

    A quiet week without even any Bishops Farewell saved by a visit to the Bald Buzzard in Leighton Buzzard which provided the immaculately kept BOTW Chiltern 3 Thread Stout.
