    A final visit to the local Rose and Crown beer fest and a visit to the new JDW in Rainham Kent gave this :-

    Wild Beer Bibble 4.2%
    Westerham Family Stout 4.5%
    Summerskills Menacing Dennis 4.5%
    Purity UBU 4.5%
    Mad Squirrel De La Creme 4.5%
    Elland Ell And Back 4.6%
    Leeds Midnight Bell 4.8%
    Thornbridge Hacksaw 5.0%
    Pomoma Island APA 5.3%
    Five Points Brickfield Brown 5.4%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Westerham Audit Ale 6.0%
    Oakham Alpha Inception IPA (cans) 6.0%
    ELB Imperial Stout 9.0%


    I'm going for something different this week, the new JDW craft cans of Oakham Alpha Inception IPA which was £3.98 for two cans making it £3.43 a pint by my reckoning. I loved it and according to the Spiel on the can it has five American hops. If you're in a JDW with a rubbish cask choice then this is a good option.

    Next week may be a quiet week as I've got to have some tests done to see if I've any blood in my veins rather than just alcohol.

    What did you make of the Saddle Tank? I'd put it on a par with Doom Bore. Marston's seem to have completely lost the plot. I also have severe doubts about Purity. Their UBU in the local Rose & Crown was a classic example of a boring brown beer to avoid. The only one of their beers I've liked is a strong dark one of which I've forgotten the name.

    A very quiet week, but at least I actually made it to the bar, unlike last week.

    North Riding - Mosaic.*
    Stancill - Treason.

    The Treason sounded great from the description on the pump clip - 'Spiced Yorkshire Parkin Porter'. Unfortunately, all I got was a vague ginger taste on the palate. Disappointing.

    Just a gentle stroll from Chancery Lane to Covent Garden.


    Toast Ale -- Session IPA (bottle)
    Tiny Rebel -- Stay Puft *
    Navigation -- Rebel
    Higson's -- NZIPA
    Oakham -- JHB
    Sadlers -- Peaky Blinders Black IPA

    BOTW goes to Tiny Rebel Stay Puft in near perfect condition (NBSS 4.5) in Ye Olde Mitre ,on a revisit to an old haunt which impressed.I really enjoy this marshmallow porter,especially now the nights are drawing in.

    Engine troubles are curtailing my cruising,next week looks barren.
