    Quite a lot of indifferent ale early in the week,which got better later on with BOTW,not for the first time,Saltaire Triple Chocoholic on top form in The George.

    Next week boating from the Chilterns into Northamptonshire visiting some usual haunts known for decent ale.

    Quiet week for me.

    Ossett - Yorkshire Brunette.
    Saltaire - Cascade.
    Westgate - Ruby Rouge.
    Rat - White Rat.
    Hadrian Border - Tyneside Blonde.
    Oakham - Scarlet Macaw.*
    Five Towns - V2 Feige.
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Stancill - Black.

    All a bit 'meh', for one reason, or another, apart from the Scarlet and the Mosaic, with the latter being the easy winner.

    Very quiet but perked up by BOTW Blue Monkey Chimpagne (bottle).
    Brewed with champagne yeast and at 10% ideal for a small celebration.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Hampshire ,Surrey, That London.

    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Harveys Sussex Best Bitter
    ELB Peacock
    Five Points XPA
    Oakham JHB
    Beavertown Gamma Ray
    Pressure Drop Tambourine Mountain
    Amundsen Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Imperial Stout
    Slaters Amarillo
    Muirhouse Pirates Gold
    Hammerpot Australian Pale.

    All good except for the Harvey's , not in great condition, keg wins the day,hard to choose between the Pressure Drop and Amundsen beers both thoroughly enjoyed in The Kings Arms,a great beer pub, Tambourine Mountain takes the prize just, a fine example of craft keg murk.

    Mine for last week, most of which were from a small crawl in Stockport:

    Boltmaker - Timothy Taylor's (not new to me but included for completeness)
    Queen of Diamonds - Wild Card
    Riptide - Fool Hardy Ales
    Ragabash - Fool Hardy Ales (taster)
    Baby Barleywine - Marble
    Velvet Mild - Naylor's
    Celtic Warrior - Pictish (taster)
    1924 - Mobberley Brewhouse
    Taking The Pith - Mobberley Brewhouse (taster)
    Hexenahus Gingerbread Stout - Thirst Class Ale
    Dry Stout - Cloudwater x Green Cheek collab
    Made in the Shade - Track

    I think it's joint first place for the Dry Stout, a Cloudwater / Green Cheek collaboration, 5.9% on cask at The Petersgate Tap and the Made in the Shade by Track, a 5.6% porter and also on cask at The Font. I enjoyed the Fool Hardy Ales ones too, to be fair.
