    A trip to Hebden Bridge on Saturday led to a very good Thornbridge Jaipur at the Old Gate.

    Just a single pub visit so by default BOTW was Purple Moose Black Cherry Porter* in top form in the Old Cross Tavern .Not overpowering cherry,some vanilla and well balanced by good bitterness ,a very enjoyable quaff.

    Next week looks equally bleak.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    A day off last Tuesday with a short trip to Reading helped make the list even more interesting.

    Vibrant Forest Summerlands
    Vibrant Forest Cambrian Root*
    Vibrant Forest Barbarella*
    Three Blind Mice Milk Worm*
    Wild Weather/New Lion War Against Reality*
    Goffs Jester Brew 10*
    Goffs Jester Brew 11
    Beavertown Neck Oil
    Navigation New Dawn*
    Acorn Powder Plot*
    Dent Dales Way
    Red Cat Art Of T*
    Test Brewing Dun Stout
    Hop Back Entire Stout*
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold*
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale*
    West Berks Maharaja IPA*

    There are 4 or 5 top contenders here but BOTW is Three Blind Mice Milk Worm,described as a Milk Porter it scored a rare NBSS 4.5 for me in The Nags Head,narrowly edging out the Barbarella, a Rhubarb IPA in the same venue.

    Another quiet week, unfortunately.

    Whitstable - Oyster Stout.
    Fernandes - Half Nelson.
    Tigertops - Little Mac.*
    North Riding - Cascade.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Phoenix - Monkeytown Mild.

    A two horse race between the porter and the Little Mac, both on superb form. As mentioned on previous BOTWs, I've found Tigertops beers a little variable of late, but when The Axeman gets it right, he definitely gets it right. As always, it's difficult to find much info on Tigertops brews, but according to Untappd it's triple hopped and dry hopped. It certainly had fantastic flavour for a 3.7% beer, with a cumulative, lingering bitterness.
