    Trent & Mersey


    A mixed bag in Harlow,Hertford,Thames Path and Ham.

    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Cloudwater -- #www.oooooo.ddd * (key keg)
    Shepherd Neame -- Samuel Adams Blonde Ambition
    Fuller's -- London Pride (bottle)
    Windsor & Eton -- Rebuplika (keg)
    Meantime -- Pale (keg)
    Charles Wells -- Youngs Special
    Marston's -- Banks's Lock 16

    A clear BOTW in the strangely named Cloudwater #www.oooooo.ddd in the new micro in Hertford,a fine and pokey (7.2%) smoked beer with a very decent bitter finish.

    Next week completes the ticking off of obscure BCN locations ,to be rewarded by a trip to Wolverhampton and a visit to guess where !

    Very quiet, this week.

    North Riding - Citra.*
    Acorn - Darkness MILD.*
    Tigertops - Equality.
    Raw - Grey Ghost IPA.

    The Citra was superb, as usual, but as I've nominated it several times before, I'll plump for the Darkness instead. It's a lovely creamy, dark red, mild and a good advert for Mild Month.

    Ho hum in Kent.

    Cronx-Nektar 4.5%abv:hazy and unwelcoming,little to recommend it.Unsure whether to blame the brewery(new to me),or the pub.I'm minded to blame the pub.
    Angels and Demons-I spy Dragon Fly IPA:Very pale,reedy hops (appropiately).Pineapple.Light for its strength.My BOTW, by default.

    A quiet week for me too :-

    Titanic Classic Mild 3.5%
    ELB Orchid Mild 3.6%
    Southwark Bankside Blonde 3.8%
    Nethergate Copperhead 4.0%
    Truman's Lazarus 4.2%
    Hop Back Summer Lightning 5.0%
    Reunion Incredible Pale 5.0%
    Windsor & Eton Conqueror 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Southwark Harvard APA 5.5%

    The winner is the Windsor & Eton Conqueror Black IPA as tried for £2.09 in the E11 Walnut Tree. The closest contenders were the two milds, the Titanic one being a new one for me.

    Bit of variety:

    Blackpit Goshawk
    Blackpit Loosehead
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Salopian Darwins Origin*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening

    BOTW was Salopian Darwins Origin. Nettles, hint of citrus, gently bitter finish. If it appears a BBB it's a good one.

    down 'ere, from oop there


    The Tiny Rebel-DEYA NEIPA collaboration upstairs at the 'Craft' bar at Wigan's John Bull. Pleasant chat with the barman and I learned that NEIPA is New England IPA, this one has terrific nose and flavour, even if rather more murk than I care for. This in the middle of a 3-day endurance test around Doncaster, Stockport, Wigan, Manchester, during which I think the pint tally reached 35, now reminding me I ain't getting any younger...

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.



    Hook Norton Sundial
    Hook Norton Gold
    Slaughterhouse Three Little Pigs
    Marble Lagonda IPA
    Hollow Stone Blueberry And Mocha Stout
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Slaters Pale Ale
    Muirhouse Magnum Mild

    Wasn't sure the Blueberry and Mocha would work, but it did for me, close but BOTW has to be Marble Lagonda IPA , both were keg and both taken in the very good Baliffs Tap.
