    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Magic Rock Saucery (c)
    Magic Rock Dark Arts (c)
    Morrisons (Oakham) The Best American Pale Ale (b)
    BrewDog Pale Ale (b)
    BrewDog Elvis Juice (b)
    BrewDog Punk AF (b)
    Thornbridge Jaipur (b)
    Vocation Life & Death (c)
    Northern Monk Faith (c)
    Northern Monk Neopolitan (c)
    Allendale Wanderlust (c)

    Some really enjoyable stuff in that list, the Punk AF was brought by mistake but you have to drink your mistakes, I didn't
    reckon much of the last two in the list, everything else was pretty good, the Magic Rock Dark Arts tried this evening was very good and BOTW.

    I've mostly had Vocation Life & Death, Jaipur & Punk this week. I thought the Punk IPA may have been thinner than the JDW keg but I'm really not sure. The easy winner is the Jaipur which is just as good in a can but better than some pubs cask and keg.

    BOTW Thornbridge Jaipur (can)

    Mostly Rudgate and Roosters this week, children's sized cans for the Roosters and mini-keg for Rudgate. I also had a couple of bottles and I'd forgotten how good Rochfort is so BOTW Rochfort 10

    Guess where ?

    Jennings -- Cumberland Ale (b)
    Camden -- Pale (b)
    Marston's -- Pedigree (bottle conditioned)
    Weird Beard -- Sweet Child O'Pine (b)
    Tiny Rebel -- Clwb Tropica (c)
    Magic Rock -- Common Grounds (c)
    Banks's -- Lancaster Bomber (b)

    Pleasantly surprised how some bottled nationally available brands (Cumberland,Lancaster Bomber) are so much better in that form than when I've drunk them on cask in a pub.However BOTW goes to Magic Rock Common Grounds,a proper porter with an inviting bitter dry finish.Shame I only had the one tin.

    Next week much the same.

    Seem to drinking a more varied selection when at home but I'm missing cask badly:

    Marble Berimbolo*
    Marble Earl Grey IPA*
    Northern Monk New World IPA
    Oakham Citra IPA*
    Roosters Baby Faced Assassin
    Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica
    Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta*
    Blue Monkey Guerilla Stout
    Blue Monkey Infinity +1
    Blue Monkey Plum Porter

    No negative reflection on the unstarred choices as I've been mine sweeping some older stock. BOTW was Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta a nicely subtle earl grey IPA which hit the spot with two 330 cans in a row.

    Very little to go at, this week.

    Saltaire - Citra. (b)
    Ilkley - Blonde. (b)
    Saltaire - Cascade. (b)

    The cellar's looking very bare, but getting a couple of bag-in-the-box beers, from Nomadic, delivered soon. Should make the weekend more interesting.
