    More Thames Path,Wolverhampton,Penkridge and Croydon.

    Adnams -- Mosaic Pale (keg)
    Fullers -- London Pride
    St Austell --Proper Job *
    Sharp's -- Doom Bar
    Redemption -- Pale
    Bathams -- Bitter *
    Kelham Island -- Pale Rider *
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA *
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord
    Jennings -- Cocker Hoop
    Sarah Hughes -- Surprise *
    Saltaire -- New World Red
    Burning Sky -- Aurora

    BOTW goes to Thornbridge Jaipur IPA in superb condition in the Pubsgalore favourite Great Western.When kept this well,it doesn't drink like a 5.9% and the American led six hop combination made it complex yet balanced.It flew down.

    Next week a short break in Poland,a voyage of discovery into an unknow (to me) beer culture.

    When were you there? I was there early Thursday evening and Friday evening. I reckon it was before me as I'm sure you would have tried my BOTW which follows. The only reason I didn't go there Wednesday was because the Premier Inn was more expensive that day. The Jaipur was a good price there at £3.50.

    A 2 pub visit to Lichfield and a short stay in Wolverhampton produced this :-

    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.9%
    Joules Pale 4.1%
    Joules Muffin To Declare Mild 4.3%
    Mad Dog Stouty McStoutface 4.5%
    St Austell Proper Job 4.5%
    Green Duck Paradise 4.5%
    Joules No Stout About It 4.8%
    Oakham Helter Skelter 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Nottungham Supreme Bitter 5.2%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Conwy San Franxisco 5.5%
    Brewhouse & Kitchen (Lichfield) Handyman 5.5%
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA 5.9%
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild 6.0%


    The winner is an Oakham beer that I don't recall seeing before called Helter Skelter. It's the usual pale hoppy thing but I suspect they've used wheat to make it lighter. It was superb for £3.30 at the Great Western mentioned above. The Joules Mild deserves a mention, it's a stronger one with vanilla and the hint of blueberries. That and their stout are both described as "small batch brews".


    BOTW Oakham Helter Skelter

    I was in there on Wednesday evening ,so we just missed each other.I was deeply impressed by ale conditioning in the GW and everything we tried was on top form.Your Oakham BOTW wasn't on sadly .

    It must have gone really quickly as it had finished on Friday evening to be replaced by Sarah Hughes Ruby which was really heavy in comparison! The fastest I ever saw a cask go was a nine of King and Barnes Old Ale that lasted less than an hour one evening in the Leyton Drum.

    Did have to drink a couple of uncharacteristic beers due to location on Bank Holiday Monday, but a trip to Caversham and Reading yesterday in the company of Quinno for an hour or so helped readdress the balance.

    Wadworth 6X
    Flack Manor Double Drop
    Timothy Taylor Landlord
    Dark Star Hophead
    Purity Bunny Hop
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Crafty Brewing Hop Tipple
    Oakham JHB
    Dark Star American Dry
    Chorlton Bluberry Sour
    Atom Shrodingers Cat
    Siren Futurist
    Siren Suspended in Sabro
    Wild Weather Damn Dead Cucumber

    BOTW Dark Star American Dry, enjoyed in The Fox & Hounds

    Next week a visit to the Kingston Beer Festival on Saturday should give me something decent if there's anything left.
