    A quiet week.

    Oakham JHB
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Roosters Scrambler
    Bakers Dozen Magic Potion No.13

    Just the four different beers but several of each, Magic Potion ,in The Alfred, edges out the Scrambler, both easy three pinters. Next week is looking rather barren.

    Knebworth,Alpraham and Market Drayton.

    Churchend -- Gravediggers
    Farr Brewing -- Wild Side
    Brancaster -- Gate !8 (House beer for Lytton Arms)
    Abbeydale/Thornbridge -- Black IPA *
    Robinsons -- Cascade IPA
    Weetwood -- Eastgate Bitter
    Plan B -- Newport Pale *
    Adnam's -- Ghostship
    Salopian -- Oracle *

    BOTW goes to a collaberation between Abbeydale & Thornbridge,Black IPA on very fine form in the Lytton Arms. It didn't drink like a 6% and flew down ,I get confused with the Black IPA description and felt it was more a strong porter,a very fine couple of pints and knocking on the BOTY door.

    Next week looks thin.

    A poor week :0

    Banks's Sunbeam 4.2%
    Portovello Star 4.3%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Portobello APA 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Marston Old Empire 5.7%

    The cowcatcher was rather flat and the Sunbeam seemed very pedestrian to what I've had in the past.
    The winner is the Marston Old Empire gor £2.09 in the Leytonstone Walnut Tree, The coming week looks thin as well.

    BOTW Marston Old Empire

    A n extremely ordinary week:

    Taylors - Knowle Spring
    Taylors - Boltmaker
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild
    Roosters - Baby Faced Assasin
    Black Sheep - Best Bitter
    Rudgate - Jorvick
    Theakstons - Best Bitter
    Taylors - Landlord
    Abbeydale - Moonlight
    Beer Monkey - Stepping Stone
    Rat - King Rat

    Although Abbeydale beers seem to have improved it was a battle of the big IPAs with BFA on top: Roosters - Baby Faced Assasin

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Quiet week on the cask front although bottles of French Kronenburg did a decent job of re-hydration.

    BOTW Church End Goat's Milk. A decent thirst quencher on a warm afternoon but I'm still scratching my head a little over the Champion Beer of Britain award.
