    Managed to get a few beers in on another restrained week.

    Dark Star Hophead
    T.Taylors Landlord
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Big Smoke Solaris
    Hogs Back Hop Garden Gold
    Joules Pure Blonde*
    Manning Music Man*
    Revolutions Clash*
    Bakers Dozen Electric Landlady*

    BOTW is the Electric Landlady, stunningly good with The Alfred coming up with the goods yet again.

    Should be a decent list coming up this week as I'm in Bristol on Thursday and Friday.

    A couple of swifties in Huddersfield, before a gentle wander round Halifax was the basis of this week's bibbing.


    Mallinsons - Kiwi Calypso.
    Roosters - Gridiron.
    Shiny - Affinity.
    Church End - Goats Milk.
    Vocation - Bread & Butter.*
    Rat - Ratcher in the Rye.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Vocation - Life & Death.*
    Nightjar - Moloko.*
    Burning Sky - PLateau.
    Squawk - Aix.
    KIrkstall - Dissolution IPA.*
    Blackjack - Porter.
    Salopian - Kashmir.*
    Eagles Crag - Black Eagle.
    Fernandes - Black Voodoo.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.

    Quite a few contenders, this week. However, the Life & Death, a big hitting modern IPA (6.5%), really perked up a jaded mid-session palate. Sampled in the Square Chapel Bar, Halifax.

    Harlow and St Albans.

    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Mc Mullens -- IPA
    ABC -- Moose Springsteen Milkshake IPA (keg)
    Mad Squirrel -- Big Sea IPA *
    3 Brewers of St Albans -- English Golden Ale *
    St Austell -- Big Job
    Oakham -- Northern Pacific

    BOTW goes to Mad Squirrel Big Sea IPA,a chunky 6% but well balanced in the correctly named Mad Squirrel Tap in St Albans.

    Next week boating through Wolverhampton means a compulsory stop at the Great Western and then a Brum city centre adventure,before an end month session then footie so could be a big week.

    I’m in Wolverhampton on Friday or Saturday night if you fancy a drink, PM me. Probably Oakengates on Sunday.

    Meanwhile back at the thread, here's my list:

    Taylors - Hoptical Storm
    Bad Co - Pale Aura
    Theakstons - Avalanche
    Theakstons - XB
    Black Sheep - Twilighter
    Rat - King Rat
    Black Hole Brewery - Supernova
    Cobra - Lager
    Dark Star - Hophead
    Saltaire - No5
    Carling - Lager
    Carlsberg - Lager
    Saltaire - Blonde
    Leeds - Calypso
    Old Spot - OSB
    Taylors - Golden Best
    Kirkstall - Black Band Porter

    I drank quite a lot of Carling/Carlsberg while researching Keighley on behalf on Pubs Galore and a lot of Macallan partly to take the taste away, the Cobra was with a curry of course.

    A very slow week for me with just a few JDW outings :-

    Black Sheep Twilighter 3.9%
    Portobello Decca Supreme Session Ale 4.3%
    Lancaster Black 4.5%
    HHook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    Purple Moose Dark Side Of The Moose 4.6%
    Banks;s Yazoo Hop Perfect IPA 4.8%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%

    The two best were the Yazoo JDW International and the Black Sheep Twilighter. The Black Sheep gets it, a low abv hoppy Summer pale / golden ale. It was £2.15 in the Welling JDW. Also had various tins from Tesco the best of which was the Thornbridge Halcyon.
