    Some good stuff this past week,

    Acorn Mystic IPA
    Cross Bay The Blonde Sunset
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Deeply Vale DV8
    Rat White Rat
    Bedlam Benchmark
    St Austell Tribute
    Burning Sky Plateau
    Burning Sky Porter
    Salopian Sessionista
    Track Sonoma
    Mikkler No Cow On The Ice
    White Horse Village Idiot
    Hop Kettle Do You Come Here Often
    Three Castles Rare Gold
    Three Brothers NEIPA
    Goffs Black Knight

    Mostly good but the standout and BOTW is the Burning Sky Porter taken in The Nags Head.

    Kent,Surrey.

    Iron Pier-Perry Street Pale:3.7%abv.Aneamic-looking as my neighbouring quaffer said,but some good spicy and muted lemon flavours.
    Surrey Hills-Ranmore Ale:Pale gold,grapefruit.Assertive,metallic finish.

    My BOTW-Iron Pier Perry Street Pale,taken,unsurprisingly at Larkins' Alehouse

    Next week, a visit to The Ram Inn has the potential for some Burningsky beers.

    Quiet week with three quality stalwarts:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    All on good form but BOTW Hop Back Summer Lightening just shades it.

    Two piss-ups in breweries this week followed by a crawl of the northern part of Leeds city centre,

    Toolmakers - Lynch Pin
    Toolmakers - Black Edge
    Toolmakers - Slide Hammer
    Thornbridge - Green Mountain (keykeg)
    Nethergate - Umble
    Bad Seed - Cake Hole
    Nomadic - Sister Dris
    Nomadic - Ivor
    Five Points - Railway Porter
    Red Willow - Breakfast Stout
    Brewdog - Tsar Struck (keg)
    Nightjar - Big fish little fish
    De Molen - Gekken & Dwazen BA (Bottle)


    Other than the De Molen which was also the most expensive beer of the week the draught BOTW is Toolmakers - Lynch Pin almost a classic bitter.

    Hertford,Gospel Oak,Potters Bar and Mugswell.

    Exeter -- Falls Over
    Adnams -- Mosaic Pale (keg)
    Howling Hops -- Pale XX * (3PT)
    Marble -- Pint *
    Five Points -- XPA *
    Kelham Island -- Pale Rider *
    Surrey Hills -- Shere Drop *

    A very good run of some top quality ale ,so a difficult choice with BOTW going to Surrey Hills Shere Drop ,NBSS 4.5 in The Well House Inn.I can now see how this ale got to be CAMRA CBOB when this well presented.

    Next week footie will be the main provider.

    I went for a Sunday Roast in the local Bell yesterday and managed to sneak in a couple of pints afterwards :-


    Burton Bridge Mild 4.0%
    Kent Black Gold 4.0%

    Both were excellent and discounted to £3.60. The Burton Bridge is a proper mild, maybe a bit strong for the purist. The Black Gold isn't a mild. I suspect it's a golden ale with burnt malt added to give it the colour. It was more refreshing than the mild so wins it.


    BOTW Kent Black Gold
