    Tower Hill,Charing Cross and Croydon.


    Salopian -- Golden Thread
    Dark Star -- Hophead
    Brew Dog -- 99 Problems * (keg)
    Pin -Up -- Gold Rush
    Sam Smiths -- Yorkshire Stingo *
    Burning Sky -- Aurora * (>3PT)

    The Yorkshire Stingo on cask was interesting but BOTW goes to Burning Sky Aurora ,on top form (NBSS 4.5) and a welcome return to The George.With Thornbridge Jaipur and Titanic Plum Porter also on,maybe they are back in the game,but I will wait for more confirmation before increasing the rating.

    Next week end month sessions inclding the annual pilgrimage to The Southampton Arms.

    Quite a decent selection, a lot taken at the always excellent Otley Beer Festival,

    Shadow - 100k
    Mill Valley - Big Panther
    Bone Machine - aegisdrekka
    Bridgehouse - Damien
    Five Towns - Panic in Detroit
    Darkland - ISA (ee-saw)
    Mill Valley - Xtra Fudge
    Nightjar - Moloko
    Nailmaker - Wapentake
    Castle Rock - Screech Owl
    Tapped - Sheaf St Pale
    Saints Row - The Moth Blonde
    Two by Two - NE Simcoe Amarillo DDH
    Elland - 1872 Porter
    Harrogate - Plum Porter
    Theakstons - Best Bitter


    BOTW from a brewery I don't normally rate, Bridgehouse Damien , a 6.2% black IPA from the wood.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Plenty of variety this week, on a Sunday afternoon crawl, but mostly an underwhelming bunch.


    Acorn - Powder Plot.
    Saltaire - Topaz.
    Ossett - Ernest.
    Wilde Child - Brownie Hunter.*
    Great Western - Old Higby.
    Old Mill - La Bolsa.*
    Westgate - Witch is Which.
    Parkway - Swamp Rat.
    Tiny Rebel - Dutty.*
    Stancill - Black.
    Great Heck - Dave.
    Great Heck - Chopper.
    Nailmaker - Anvil.
    Fernandes - Hophead Pixie.
    Mill Valley - Mill Blonde.
    Fernandes - Black Voodoo.

    I don't see many Tiny Rebel beers on my travels, but I rather enjoyed this unfiltered IPA, made with American hops.

    More excellent beer in the past week.

    Hop Kettle Home Grown
    Navigation Black IPA
    Deeply Vale Citra Storm
    Muirhouse Tick Tock
    Revolutions Tinderbox
    Slaters Western
    Acorn Mystic IPA
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    West Berks Maharaja IPA

    This weeks BOTW is the Maharaja despite some very good opposition. I hadn't particularly rated this beer when tried in the past but the latest offering was excellent in condition and taste.

    No BOTW for me. I've been diagnosed as anaemic and also told that if I carry on drinking at the sane level my liver will explode.
    No plans for any drink until Saturday and that's beginning to look unlikely.
