    This week:

    Wander Beyond Mini Strawberry Shake (keg)*
    The Kernel IPA Citra (keg)*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*
    Stella Artois

    Mostly good and whilst the IPA Citra went down well BOTW goes to Wander Beyond Mini Strawberry Shake. As described by my daughter as a beery strawberry milkshake which at 3% was ideal for a raging thirst.

    Harlow and Croydon.

    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Mc Mullens -- IPA
    Saltaire -- Cascade *
    Oakham -- Inferno *
    Arbor -- C Bomb (keg)

    BOTW from a limited range goes to Saltaire Cascade on fine form until the top bar in The George ran out of staff.

    Next week heading south on the Shropshire Union after a session in rural Hertfordshire.

    I see you are still on a gentle upslope Mick, keep up the softly softly approach and you'll be firing on all cylinders soon enough...

    That's scandalous, and the top bar was closed completely on my last visit - I presume the pub as changed management for this sort of chaos to now be happening.
    Saltaire Cascade, though, was my beer of choice this year to send ahead in the car for holiday refreshment. I am now reunited with it in Faucon, and shall be opening a bottle, well, now...

    I hope it's a case of a holiday relief manager not up to scratch,as I didn't notice any of the regular (and long standing) team anywhere inside.

    However if there has been a permanent change of management and this sort of malarky continues,any closure of the top bar will see a sudden decamp elsewhere,unless there is something decent on at the lower bar.

    I've been to the George early doors and the top bar didn't open until midday (I think).
