    Weald of Kent



    Pig and Porter-Slave to the Money:4.1%abv.Drinkable,but Dr Sarson was on his way.
    Cellar Head-Festival Pale:4.85abv.Hazy,stone fruits.From Keg dispense.OK
    Cellar Head-Hop Project #004West Kent IPA:6.2%abv.Pale,hazy,luscious,resinous hops.Raspberries on the finish.Stunning beer.
    Harveys-Sussex Best Bitter:4%abv.The Morris dancers were downing this with gusto, so I thought I should too. Fine, but a bit green.
    Titsey Brewing-Gresham Hopper:3.7%.Pale, watery.Certainly not the hop bomb promised on the pump clip.A new brewery for me.
    Larkins-Traditional:3.4%.Lovely toffeish session beer.

    My BOTW, and on the list for BOTY is Cellar Head-Hop Project #004 West Kent IPA, taken at Larkins' Alehouse

    A very quiet week after last week;

    Thornbridge - Tropical Swan
    Tapped - Station Porter
    Brew York - Tonkoko
    Bad Seed - Judgement Hill
    Salt - Bonneville
    Thornbridge - Jaipur
    Acorn - Gorlovka

    Actually an easy choice in spite of several big hitters, BOTW Brew York - Tonkoko

    Moderate week featuring some old faves:

    Everards Tiger
    Abbeydale Moonshine*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Infinity*

    BOTW Blue Monkey Infinity. Splendid and led me to conclude that not nearly enough Blue Monkey beer finds its way down my screech.

    A few days in Wolverhampton where the rare occurrence of below par guest pints in the Great Western happened. Nothing was bad enough to send back but I wondered if someone was on holiday.

    Titanic Classic Mild 3.5%
    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.9%
    Sadler's Peaky Blinder Pale 4.3%
    Titanic Stout 4.5%
    Blindman's Icarus 4.5%
    Castle Rock Elsie Mo 4.7%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Oakham Green Devil 6.0%
    Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild 6.0%

    The winner is the Kelham Island Pale Rider (£3.40) which was one GW guest in first class nick. I seem to have nominated this a few times this year.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Localish and Reading (which is fairly localish)

    Southwark Mango IPA
    Cross Bay Omega
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold
    Clearwater Riff IPA
    BrewDog Zombie Cake
    Elusive Spectrum
    71 Brewing Pale and Significant
    Kirksall Single Hop Mosaic
    Vibrant Forest Rubus
    Amundsen Apocalyptic Thunder
    Wantsum Amarillo
    Three Castles Sand Castles
    Revolutions Switch #16
    Revolutions Chocolate Fudge Milk Stout
    Ascot Mango Milkshake IPA
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA (Bottle)

    I expected BOTW to come from the Nags but have to go with the Chocolate Fudge Milk Stout , yet again The Alfred comes up trumps.
    Working all next weekend so expecting a shorter list but a trip on Tuesday evening to The Wonston Arms should provide some decent beer.

    A very frustrating week, with just the three sampled.

    Marble - Pint.
    Kirkstall - Black Band Porter.
    Abbeydale - Heathen.

    No obvious winner, so I'll give it to the Pint, as the other two weren't in great condition. Sampled in Friends of Ham, Leeds
