    Kent;one welcome,if unplanned visit.

    Welton's:Topper Mild 4%abv. I've always avoided Welton's beers as I thought they were iffy.However, recourse to my records shows that I'd never tried them.Institutional prejudice or what? A so-so Dark Mild with some rough edges.

    A few decent beers with a trip to a rather warm London on Saturday, but BOTW was found yesterday lunchtime in The Wonston Arms, Flowerpots Spring Loaded 4.2%, a new for me, and very nice beer.

    Harlow,Hertford,Shoreditch and Pimlico.

    Mc Mullens -- Mak Black
    Mighty Oak -- Simply Citra *
    Strathaven -- Golden Summer Glow
    Mighty Oak -- Charcoal Burner *
    Tring -- Sidepocket for a Toad *
    Buxton -- Downfall Ekuanot
    Harbour -- Cornish Bitter *
    Black Iris -- Better the Devil You Know * (3PT)
    Magic Rock -- Cannonball *(keg)
    Bira 91 -- IPA (keg)
    Bad Seed --Bright Light Big City
    Bad Seed -- Rhubarborous

    The Magic Rock Cannonball 7.4% was an unbelievable hop bomb,but BOTW goes to Black Iris Better the Devil You Know on very fine form in The Commercial Tavern..A pale IPA,dangerous at 5.5% it flew down on a hot evening.

    Next week Leek and the Staffordshire Moorlands.

    Just two visits to the E11 JDWs this week :-


    ELB Orchid Mild 3.6%
    Naylor's Velvet 4.0%
    Enefield EB 4.0%
    Signal Absolutely Fuggled 4.0%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    Orkney Dark Island 4.5%
    Stonehenge Great Bustard 4.8%
    Southwark Barbe Rouge Single Hop 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%
    Nelson Nelsons Blood 6.0%
    Enefield London IPA 6.0%


    The Signal beer came out of the blue in the Wanstead George. According to the GBG Signal do not produce real ale but this was served from a clipped hand pump at the regular price. It was quite unexceptional.
    The best was the Oakham Citra at £2.09 in the Walnut Tree JDW.


    BOTW Oakham Citra

    BOTW Oakham Citra
    One of my favourite beers, It does seem to be becoming a bit ubiquitous of late but its quality is holding up thus far.

    Agreed, it might be my BOTW again unless I find something on Saturday!
