    Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica (drinking it right now)
    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.

    Still just drinking at home.

    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA (c)
    BrewDog -- Elvis Juice (b&c)
    Vocation -- Life & Death (c)
    Titanic -- Stout (b)
    BrewDog/Evil Twin -- Roaster Coaster (c)

    BOTW goes again to the Roaster Coaster ,dangerously drinkable at 9% and the nitro widget does create a very smooth head.Good job I also enjoy strong coffee.Tesco offering.

    Next week back to boating but without the canalside pubs and curry houses.Bottles and can still to the fore.

    Very limited choice this week, need to place a big order, somewhere. Magic Rock? Vocation? Saltaire?

    Vocation - Life & Death. (c)
    Harbour - Antipodean IPA. (c)
    Bad Co. - Denver Milk Stout. (c)


    Drinking a lot of pale, hoppy beers, but need to get my hands on some dark ones, to act as a contrast. Tend to end a pub session with stouts and porters.

    Similar list to previous weeks so I won’t repeat it.

    BOTW by a long way was Marble Lagonda IPA from a 5l mini keg. Softer and less carbonated than the can which somehow allows more complexity of flavour to come through. The closest I’ve had to cask in weeks, the best thirst quencher and it flew down.

    Temperatures down to single figures by the end of the week too...

    As I'm mainly drinking outdoors, the beers I've been going for are 7 to 9% - less carrying weight, and fewer trips to the bushes.

    The first half of you question, I assumed you were in the garden. Then thought that you must have very tolerant neighbours before realising that you're out on the road!

    A delivery of tins from Siren Craft last friday has added a bit of change from the supermarket stuff.
    Salt IKAT (c)
    Oakham Citra (b)
    BrewDog Dead Pony Club (b)
    BrewDog Elvis Juice (b)
    North Brewing Lost Cosmonauts (c)
    Thornbridge Jaipur (b)
    Siren White Tips(c)
    Siren Calypso(c)
    Siren Santo(c)
    Siren/Green Cheek Every Second Matters (c)
    Siren Yu Lu (c)
    Siren A Tribe Called Zest (c)

    Nothing poor in the above list, name of the week goes to A Tribe Called Zest, but for BOTW I shall pick Salt IKAT . A murky extremely fruity Imperial Double IPA? Very easy drinking at 8.0%.
