    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    More very good stuff this past week.

    Exmoor Exile Barista
    Three Brothers Hopical Storm
    Manning Music Man
    Slaters Columbia Coffee Stout
    Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale
    Hop Kettle Lode Star
    Great Heck Trafalgar
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Fullers Fresh Tracks
    Mallisons Percalla
    Dark Star American Pale Ale
    71 Brewing Apres Apricot
    Vibrant Forest Betula
    Vibrant Forest Loral
    Fell Cask O'Joe

    Vibrant Forest are undoubtedly my brewery of the year, both examples above were top notch but I'm giving BOTW this week to a Coffee Stout, of the three of that style I've tried this week, all were good, but the Slaters Columbia was beyond good and takes the prize, yet again BOTW is found in in The Alfred.

    No idea what next week may bring.

    A few days spent in Wolverhampton gave this :-

    Holden's Black Country Mild 3.7%
    Pershore Solstice Gold 3.8%
    Holden's Black Country Bitter 3.9%
    Blue Monkey Primate 4.0%
    Oakham Below Zero 4.1%
    Grafton Sozzled Santa 4.3%
    BCA Plum Pig 4.3%
    Mumbles Oystermouth Stout 4.4%
    Izaak Walton's Merry Maggot 4.4%
    Reunion Talwar 4.5%
    Titanic Last Porter Call 4.9%
    Purple Moose X-Moose 5.0%
    Hplden's Special 5.1%
    Abbeydale Absolution 5.3%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Hook Norton Twelve Days 5.5%
    Fixed Wheel No Brakes IPA 5.5%
    Froth Blowers Old Pals Ale 5.7%
    Marston Old Empire 5.7%

    Of the Xmas beers the only real dud was the Sozzled Santa and the Blue Monkey Primate is further proof that brown beers don't have to be boring. However, the clear winner is the Fixed Wheel No Brakes IPA (£3.50) which was superb in the Great Western.
    Not much action between now and January.

    Kent: only one beer this week,but wisely chosen.

    Angels and Demons-Goldilocks is Dead:5.3%abv.A grand pale ale,oaty oiliness and determined hops.

    This week including a short Norfolk jaunt:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Panther American Pale Ale
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Blue Monkey Guerilla Plum Stout*
    Brancaster Brewdolph*

    Brancaster are small and their output seems to range from very good to decidedly average but BOTW Brrancaster Brewdolph, a rich, malty 5%er with a moreish, bitter finish, hit the spot.
