    Decent week for me.

    Hilltop - Golden Ale.
    Jolly Boys - Jolly Collier Porter.
    Hop Studio - Vanilla Porter.
    Bingley - Seven Dials.*
    Ashover - Alton.
    Roosters - Capability Brown.
    Thornbridge - Cocoa Wonderland.
    Abbeydale / Box - Sterile Tears.*
    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Empire - Chocolate & Cherry Mild.*
    Chin Chin - Dead Disco.*
    Magpie - Thieving Rogue.
    Fernandes - Float Your Boat.
    Fernandes - Polaris.
    Fernandes - Black Voodoo.
    Salt - Alpaca.

    The Mosaic was excellent, as usual, but as I've nominated it several times before, I shall give the honours to the Seven Dials. It's a cockle warming 6.5% Black IPA and was just the job on a dank Yorkshire afternoon. Sampled in The Black Rock, Wakefield.

    Poor session in Durham...
    Thornbridge Am/Pm in the Victoria was the only decent one.

    A quiet week :-

    ELB Pale 4.0%
    Southwark Routemaster Red 4.2%
    Vale Of Glamorgan South Island 4.2%
    Sambrooks APA 4.55
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    ELB Cowcatcher 4.8%
    Nethergate Old Growler 5.0%
    Southwark Eureka! 5.0%
    Goff's Black Knight 5.3%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%

    While none of these were offensive there is little outstanding. Normally the Cowcatcher would be the one but I caught the end of the cask. I'll go for something different the Routemaster Red which is a pleasant enough old school red ale and was £2.19 in the Wanstead George. Hopefully a visit to the N Wales coast will see something better next week.

    Harlow,Victoria Park and W1.Quite a bit of indifferent beer,often decent brews badly kept.

    Mc Mullens -- Harvest Pale
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    St Austell -- Proper Job *
    Titanic -- Plum Porter
    Dark Star -- American Pale Ale
    Wild Beer -- Belgium Pale
    St Austell -- Tribute
    St Austell -- Mandarin Bavaria

    BOTW goes to St Austell Proper Job,sampled into two pub and thankfully a regular guest in Youngs tied houses with The Crown serving the best.

    Next week lock free cruising up the Ashby Canal,hoping Market Bosworth or Hinckley can produce the goods.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Vale Of Glamorgan Speak Easy
    Brunswick Triple Hop
    3 Piers Old Station Porter
    Cobra Lager
    Rat White Rat
    Cloudwater Open Door
    Arbor Shangri-La
    Arbor Mosaic

    A short list but with some quality, but nothing came close to the Cloudwater Open Doorin sensational shape in The Antelope.

    Not the worst week:

    Castle Rock Elsie Mo
    Grain Store 1050*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Junior Ape
    Wantsum Ravening Wolf*
    Titanic Plum Porter*

    A bit disappointed by the Junior Ape which, whilst clearly from the Ape Ale stable, didn't have a shadow of the depth or complexity of flavour of the original. Probably more a reflection of just how good Ape Ale is.
    BOTW was Wantsum Ravening Wolf. A 5.9% New Zealand Pale which was in top condition in the Seven Stars, Rugby and whistled through the 3 pint test.
