    Not a bad week for quantity if a little lacking in variation:

    North Cotswold Shagweaver
    XT M*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Abbeydale Moonshine*

    Another vote for BOTW XT M. Delightful and a shame that it ran out.

    Not a particularly inspiring week for me, but Beer of the Week would be Love & Hate by Vocation Brewery, with Red Shift by Thirst Class Ale & Torrside a respectable second place.

    The Love & Hate is one I have had before, and think I enjoyed it even more the second time round. The Red Shift was new to me, a red ale with coffee.
