    With no pub visits, last week, I certainly enjoyed my beer, this week.


    Roosters - Rude Boy.
    Ilkley - Alpha Beta.*
    Arbor - I Speak For The Trees.
    Wild Beer - Bibble.
    Roosters - Fort Smith.
    Five Points - Railway Porter.*
    Abbeydale - Grafter.
    Rat - Shamrats.*
    Magic Rock - Dark Arts.
    Wilde Child - Columbus.*
    Great Newsome - Holderness Dark.
    Kelham Island - Tiger Cub.
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Blackjack - Rotating Hop West Coast IPA.*

    All the asterisked beers were pretty good, but the West Coast IPA just pipped the Alpha Beta.

    All decent beer this week:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Moongazer Ruby Ale*
    Moongazer Wild One*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    BOTW Moongazer Wild One. A seasonal from the Norfolk Brewhouse. 4.3% and initially very bitter which quickly becomes moorish making it easily sessionable.

    I'd forgotten that one. If I remember rightly the imagery is or was a scantily dressed woman but the name is nothing more than a play on words for a style of beer. If the brewery did change the clip would they be within their rights to order tenancies to change it if they refused to do so?

    That's the one.

    Now, I stand corrected, as it seems that Robinsons may have released a new pump clip for Dizzy Blonde:

    https://www.robinsonsbrewery.com/sto...nde/c-24/p-833

    But this page still shows the bottles with the original design:

    https://www.robinsonsbrewery.com/sto...nde/c-24/p-154

    In addition to selling merchandise (keyrings and t-shirts) with that same logo on.

    I haven't seen the new pump clip in use yet, so it's either a very recent change or they aren't pushing it too hard yet. Call me cynical, but perhaps they have a big stock of old merchandise they want to shift first...?

    4.4% in the bottle but 3.8% on cask?
    I thought the Zs used to be reversed (as in mirror image), I don't se that here...

    I hadn't spotted the difference in ABV.

    I don't ever recall the Zs being reversed, but then there is no guarantee I would have noticed anyway. Nothing to back that up shows on Goggle image search, but it did lead me to this...

    Could that be what you are thinking of?

    This is a common practice for beers that are bottled as well as cask. I think the idea is to retrieve any flavour lost with pasteurisation.
