    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.
