    Stumbled across another for my occasional series of outstanding beers this week:

    Mad Scientist Absence of Light Stout.

    Worth going to Darlington for, and there's not many things in that category!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Nothing offensive here though the Cotleigh Osprey was close but little outstanding.

    ELB Orchid Mild 3.6%
    Peerless Curve Ball Blond 3.7%
    Southwark Routemaster Red 4.2%
    Wily Fox The Fox That 4.2%
    Oakham Citra 4.2%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Red Star Samba 4.7%
    Hawkshead Brodies Prime Porter 4.9%
    Cotleigh Osprey 5.0%
    North Riding Amaretto Porter 5.0%
    Phoenix Double Gold 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Big Bog Bourbier 6.0%

    The best was probably the Oakhm Citra but that's so last week I'll go for the low abv Peerless Curve Ball Pale which was £2.49 in the Richard John Blacker JDW in Liverpool. It may be weak but had a great taste.

    BOTW Peerless Curve Ball Blond

    Leek,Stanley,Consall and Kew.

    Vocation -- Life and Death *
    Facers -- North Star Porter
    Titanic -- Plum Porter *
    Heritage Brewing -- St Modwen Golden Ale (badged as Black Lion Gold)
    Peakstones Rock -- Black Hole
    Marston's -- Draught Bass (3PT)
    Twickenham -- Naked Ladies

    BOTW goes to Vocation Life & Death,a great IPA which didn't drink like a 6.5% in top form in the fabulous Earl Grey Inn as part of a brief tour around the great drinking town that is Leek.

    Next week more Thames Path.

    Interesting week:

    Vocation Life and Death*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA*
    Titanic White Star*
    Heritage Black Lion Gold
    Alton Black Hole*
    Marstons Bass*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Another vote for the Vocation Life & Death as BOTW against some stiff competition. Couldn't avoid a second despite the excellent choice available.

    Another quiet week, although slightly better than last week. At least I managed to tick a couple of new breweries. Also, an early Father's Day present let me sample four beers from various Bristol breweries.

    Oakham - Citra.*
    Bingley - Lock Keeper.
    Mad Crafty - Bubblegum Blonde.
    Blue Bee - Cream Soda Pale.
    Salt - West Coast Special.*
    Ridgeside - Milky Joe.
    4Ts - Old Skool Mild.
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Pentrich - Little Fury.
    North Riding - (Hazelnut?) Porter.

    Incredible Brewing - IPA.* (bottle)
    Wiper & True - Mosaic. (bottle)
    Bristol Beer Factory - El Choco. (bottle)
    New Bristol - Joy of Sesh. (bottle)

    Of the draught beers, the Citra and Mosaic were the pick. Having not had the former for a while, I'll give it the nod. No problems with quality, that I could discern. Tried at The Black Rock, Wakefield. Although not a huge fan of bottled beer, I was very impressed with the Incredible Brewing IPA. Will definitely be trying some more of their beers in the future.
