    A very modest week in Petersham and Krakow.

    Heineken -- Lager (keg)
    Zywiec -- Porter * (keg)
    Ksiazece -- Wheat Beer (keg)
    Okocim -- Lager (keg)

    BOTW goes to a very tasty and pokey (9.5%) Zywiec Porter on draught in Ulica Krokodyli,Szeroka 30,a pub like bar in the Jewish Quarter.

    Next week gentle boating through Stone to Etruria.

    Weald of Kent



    Parkway-Big Ben's APA 4.3%abv:Sweetish,not very exciting.
    Tring-Side Pocket for a Toad 3.6%abv: Nettley,reliable Bitter.I'm surprised I hadn't tried this before.
    Kent -Prohibition 4.8%abv:Thundering APA.

    As Prohibition has been lauded frequently,my BOTW is Side Pocket for a Toad, taken at The Brocket Arms

    This week:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Severn Valley Golden IPA
    Purity Longhorn IPA (keg)*
    Mill Valley Fudge*
    Titanic Plum Porter*

    BOTW Mill Valley Brewery Fudge. A fudgy stout but with enough roasted bitterness to offset the sweetness.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Mixed quality this week,

    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Three Castles Mocha Mild
    Wantsum Olicana
    Milestone Loxley
    Hogs Back TEA
    Oakham Citra
    Surrey Hills Shere Drop
    Surrey Hills Collusion X111
    Bowmans Eldorado
    Downton Quadhop
    Fyne Ales Vital Spark
    Allendale Wagtail
    Peerless Full Wack
    Firebird Work Ethic
    Phoenix Arizona
    Cloudwater Take It From The Top
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puffed
    Kent Key Lime Rye

    The last three beers in the list were all enjoyed in The Albion, and all spot on, however BOTW is Surrey Hills Collusion X111 lovely beer taken at the Kingston Beer Festival, unfortunately five of the eight beers tried there were flat and listless, not a good advert for cask beer at all, the three good ones were though very good, (all the highest ABV).

    Just the two E11 JDWs for me this week. Mostly London beers with ELB probably being the best :-

    ELB Pale 4.0%
    ELB Foundation Bitter 4.2%
    Windsor & Eton Eton Boatman 4.3%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    Reunion Beardtongue 4.5%
    Redemption Urban Dusk 4.6%
    ELB Jamboree 4.8%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Portobello APA 5.0%
    Enefield London Pale 5.0%
    Dorset Midnight Blinder 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%

    My favourite of these was the ELB Cowcatcher for £2.09 in the E11 Walnut Tree.
