    Kent:

    Bedlam:Amagansett 5%abv. I've tended to be underwhelmed by Bedlam ales in the past,but this was a good serviceable APA.Wall fruits.

    Slim pickings but BOTW Hophurst Debonair was a pleasant 4.9% stout from a brewery new to me.

    Very little pub time, this week, unfortunately.

    Abbeydale - Reveller.*
    Titanic - Cherry Dark.*
    Rat - White Rat.

    All three were pretty good, but the Reveller, a session IPA made with Cascade, Summit and Simcoe hops, was pick of the bunch. Decent flavour for a 3.9% beer.

    Harlow,Hertford and Bloomsbury.

    Mc Mullens -- Oatmalt Stout
    Northern Monk -- Faith * (keg)
    New River -- Blind Poet
    Fullers -- ESB
    Twickenham -- Naked Ladies
    St Austell -- Tribute
    Dark Star -- Hophead
    London Beer Factory -- Tip Top * (keg)
    St Austell -- Proper Job
    Thornbridge -- Twin Peaks
    Loch Lomond -- Southern Summit *
    Loch Lomond -- Lost in Mosaic *
    Mc Mullens -- White Hart Ale

    There was a Loch Lomond tap takeover in this Craft Beer Co.,both were good with Loch Lomond Southern Summit just shading it.

    Next week short break in Porto where beer isn't the drink of choice,but footie later in the week will save the ale day.

    Pootling round Yorkshire again,

    North Riding - Marshmallow Mild
    Brew York - Toucan Play That Game
    Goose Eye - Over & Stout
    Daleside - Pride of England
    Anarchy - Flat Out IPA
    Kirkstall - Three Swords
    Kirkstall - Dissolution
    Vocation - Kelly's Enigma
    Kirkstall - Black Band Porter
    Saltaire - Triple Chocoholic
    Inveralmond - Bard
    Harrogate - Vanilla Porter
    Horsforth - Cascade
    Ilkley - Lotus IPA
    Hitachino - Yoroshiku
    Revolutions - Switch #19
    Loch Lomond - Silkie Stout
    Wiper & True - Plum Pudding Porter
    Taylors - Knowl Spring
    Vocation - Chop & Change
    Molson Coors/Sharps - Doombar
    Omnipollo - Aon Pecan Mud


    A very strong field with some excellent beers, the Omnipollo Pecan Mud was exceptional, and so it should be at 11% and £7 a third! The Hitachino Yoroshiku , a Japanese IPA was also very good but BOTW North Riding - Marshmallow Mild.

    Disappointing trip around Yarm and Stockton. A strange pint by Anarchy Brewing which started off excellently, but turned into being difficult to finish. Magic Rock - Unhuman Cannonball seemed the best of a mediocre bunch so maybe my taste was off this week.

    The main aim was to try Yarm's new micropub but even at 1pm it was so busy the doorway in was blocked.

    Fairly local Hampshire and Surrey.

    Edinbrew Luxury IPA
    Goffs Jester Brew 2 - American Red
    Potbelly Lager Brau
    4T's Stout
    Colchester Brass Monkey
    Beartown Glacier
    Flowerpots Cheriton Porter
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold
    Dark Star Session IPA
    Goddards Ale Of Wight
    Thornbridge/Roosters Fortress
    Fierce & Noble American Stout
    Snowdon Driftwood

    Two poor beers, the Luxury IPA was everything but, thin as water and the Driftwood was totally nondescript. BOTW Goes to Beartown Glacier impressively flavoursome for a 3.8% beer.

    A good week for me with most of these tried in Derby & Belper :-


    Brunswick Triple Hop 4.0%
    Heritage Massey Mild 4.0%
    Slater's Amarillo 4.0%
    Lincoln Green Archers 4.0%
    North Riding APA (Summit & Centennial) 4.3%
    Taylor's Landlord Dark 4.3%
    Falstaff Kojak 4.4%
    Nene Valley Pulping On Your Stereo Orange IPA 4.5%
    Revolutios Bete Noir 4.5%
    Brunswick Rocket 4.7%
    Lincoln Green Tuck 4.7%
    Gadds' She Sells Sea Shells 4.7%
    Quantock Plastered Pheasant 4.8%
    Salopian Elements Of Symmetry 4.8%
    Titanic Plum Porter 4.9%
    Castle Rock Columbian Stout 5.0%
    Slater's Haka 5.2%
    Small World Twin Falls 5.2%
    Abbeydale Absolution 5.3%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    Thornbridge Jaipur 5.9%
    Redwillow Shameless 5.9%
    Enefield London IPA 6.0%
    Brunswick Black Sabbath 6.0%
    Nene Valley Plan B 6.5%
    Flathead Da Ba Dee Reserve 7.2%
    Pentrich Daydreamer 8.0%

    There are two that stand out the Flathead Da Ba Dee Reserve which is described as a Blueberry Muffin Porter and the Brunswick Triple Hop which is a very tasty old school pale. At just £2.60 (discounted) in the Brunswick it's only 11p dearer than the guests in the Derby JDWs and better than most of them. However, the Da Ba Dee just shades it. It was on in the excellent Angels micropub in Belper and was the same price as everything else at £3.00 a pint.
