    Hoxton.

    Moor -- Nor' Hop
    Five Points -- Railway Porter *
    Crouch Vale -- Ten 46
    Mighty Oak --Cascade IPA *

    BOTW goes to Mighty Oak Cascade IPA,a magnificent 6.4% quaffable gem in NBSS 5 condition in The Wenlock Arms.BOTY so far.

    Next week boating north on the Grand Union while it is still possible to travel around,some old haunts with hopefully top quality real ale.

    Kent,East Sussex:

    Larkins-Porter 5.2%abv:A cheering sight, and probably good physic.Dried fruit, bitter chocolate.
    Long Man-American Pale Ale 4.8%abv:Bit tired,perhaps,but mellow.
    Burning Sky-Arise 4.4%abv: From keg,but a delicious session pale.Wall fruit.Hazy.

    Much as I relished the Arise,my BOTW, inevitably, is Larkins Porter, a beer that I thought I'd missed for the season.

    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.

    VOG New Tricks#17- Hefeweizen
    Edinbrew Mid Atlantic
    Edinbrew Super Stout
    Tollgate Hackney Blonde
    Colchester Metropolis
    Keppels Golden Crow
    North Yorkshire White Lady
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale

    A toss up between two beers, the styles not normally my thing, VOG New Tricks and North Yorkshire White Lady, the former a wheat beer and the latter billed as a cask lager, I'm going with the lager, soft on the pallet and a subtle Orangey taste. BOTW is North Yorkshire White Lady.

    Just a Sunday afternoon session, this week. (Probably the last for a good while).


    Rat - Ratched.
    Great Heck - Nepa.
    Ridgeside - Plato.
    Magic Rock - Dark Arts.*
    Rat - Mutant Rat.*
    Elland - Amnesia.
    Empire - Moonraker.
    Wily Fox - Blonde Vixen.
    Five Towns - Peculiar Blue.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Stancill - Appraisal.
    Parkway - Ruffled Feathers.

    A two horse race this week, between the Dark Arts and the Mutant Rat. The latter, a premium strength (5%) version of White Rat, wins by a nose. Tried in the rapidly improving Henry Boons, Wakefield.

    Best week for a while I suspect:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Marstons Pedigree
    Pardoe's Netherton Pale Ale*
    Abbeydale Deception*
    Abbeydale Hopback Southern Cross

    Easy winner of BOTW was Pardoe's Netherton Pale Ale. Typical black country beer with a sweetish, malty start which takes a half or so to adjust to followed by a lovely dry finish. Reminded me of Bathams Best, difficult to put down.
