    Some interesting and very good beers this week.

    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Long Man Long Blonde
    Sambrooks Young Harvey*
    Pomona Island Pale*
    Siren Suspended In Chinook*
    Vibrant Forest Mantra*
    Cloudwater AW18 Bitter*
    Neepsend Erato
    Double Barrelled Parka*
    Double Barrelled Wiffle Ball*
    Double Barrelled /Elusive Too Much Excitement*
    Wylam/To Ol Warning The Curious*
    Thornbridge Hacksaw*
    Westgate Blonde
    Muirhouse The Greedy King*

    Despite many well conditioned beers one stands out, surprising and out of character for me choosing a Best Bitter, not surprising is the brewer. BOTW Cloudwater AW18 Bitter, fantastic stuff.

    Another poor week for me with just two visits to two local Spoons :-



    Banks's Mild 3.5%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    Enefield Speculation 4.8%
    Sambrook's Powerhouse Porter 4.9%
    Summerskill Plymouth Porter 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%



    Summerskill is a brewery that's been around for a while but I've never really rated but their Plymouth Porter was in first class condition at the Wanstead George. I was offered the Punk IPA as the "free" drink with food but it's not listed on the menus.
    Next week sees a few days in Wales so hopefully a longer list.

    We must be up the road from them, but I hadn't heard of them until this weekend : Google didn't help. Apparently they are french.

    Three Legs-Pale 3.7%abv. These chaps are popular in the region now.Pale haze, nettley hops.Unfortunately, the glass wasn't 100%, but still my BOTW.

    Quiet week with three old favourites: Oakham Bishops Farewell, Adnams Ghost Ship and a particularly fresh barrel of BOTW Brancaster Oystercatcher going down very well. Not the whole barrel sadly.

    A very thin week, the best beer was a bottle of St Bernardus Abt but draught wise Moor Stout was rather good and head & shoulders above almost everything else I had (which wasn't
    much )

    According to a friend they are based in an industrial unit near to the small aerodrome at Headcorn.They have been brewing beer in their brewpub for 8 years at Le Touquet.The owners fly between the 2 places. Very small scale ,polypins and bottles.cheers

    Small world! I know the people at the airfield-she is our vet. Even closer to us than Old Dairy.
