    A decent week.

    Hop Studio - Pale.
    Beespoke - Clocktower Porter.
    Rat - Ratchet Strap.
    Beatnikz Republic - Kentucky Riot.*
    Ilkley - Lotus IPA.*
    Roosters - Baby Faced Assassin.*
    North Riding - Citra.*
    3Bs - Stokers Slake.
    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.
    Reedley Hallows - Pendleside.

    Quite a close call, this week. However, the Lotus, an old favourite, made with plenty of American hops, takes the honours.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Just three pubs visited last week, but a couple of them several times.

    Black Sheep Twilighter*
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale*
    Flagship Sublime
    Great North Eastern Hopnicity*
    4Ts BPA (Blueberry Pale Ale)*

    Most of it good stuff and BOTW this week goes to the same brewer as last, this time it's Burning Sky Summertimein the reliable Antelope.

    A JDW onlt week for me :-

    Portobello VPA 4.0%
    Southwark Bermodnsey Best 4.4%
    Reunion Beardtongue 4.5%
    Portobello Market Porter 4.6%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Reunion Incredible Pale 5.0%
    Pheasantry Mikado Kild 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%

    I thought the Bermondsey Best was a good BBB although amber rather than brown but the winner is ELB Cowcatcher (£2.09) at the E11 Walnut Tree.

    BOTW ELB Cowcatcher

    Dipping for the tape:

    Dunham Massey Lyme IPA
    4Ts IPA
    Marble Manchester Bitter
    Abbeydale Voyager IPA*
    Hopstead Porteresque
    Moorhouses Nick O*
    North Pale
    Marble Berimbolo*
    Marble Earl Grey IPA*
    Marble Jonah’s Stout*
    Barshams Mr Franks
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Nobbys Plum Porter
    Woodfordes Nelsons Revenge*

    No competition for the Marble beers which were all excellent. BOTW Marble Berimbolo. No description as it flew out of the glass so fast that the memory’s a touch blurred. Superb and a BOTY contender.
