    A couple of days back, four teenager-sized cans of Ghost Ship slipped down very nicely!

    The two pints of fresh Harvey's to take away obtained from The Plough in Cock Marling (yes, that's a real place) whilst passing.

    I had two pints of Harveys Sussex as a take away from the Express Brentford and although it was the best selling beer of the day it was very poor.Do you think Harveys are back brewing ?

    Yes, they have been brewing at a reduced scale throughout the pandemic in order to keep their yeast strain alive and service some takeaway outlets in addition to a limited selection from the online shop. So, unfortunately, I sounds like you got the end of an old barrel to me.

    A more interesting week than of late, thanks partly to the Beerhawk fathers day gift box from my son,

    Roosters - Yankee
    Augustiner - Helles
    Harveys - Imperial Extra Double Stout
    Roosters - One Trick Pony
    Bad Co - Love Over Gold
    Bad Co - Lager
    Roosters - Twenty Four Seven
    Turning Point - Rare Candy
    Harrogate - Plum Porter
    Magic Rock - Saucery
    Wild Beer - Pogo
    Camden - Hells Lager
    Tiny Rebel - Clwb Tropica
    Vocation - Yakima Pilsner

    A fair number of citrus/fruity IPAs but once again Munich wins, Augustiner - Helles
    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.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    A very enjoyable week

    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA (c)
    Vocation -- Life & Death (c)
    Blue Monkey -- Geurilla Plum Stout (b)
    Marble/Brouwerij Krees -- Caramel Vanilla imperial Milkshake Stout (b)
    Marble -- Lagonda IPA (c)
    Marble -- Earl Grey IPA (c)

    Some great tasting beers and a standout BOTW from Marble/Krees Caramel Vanilla Imperial Milkshake Stout ,a 12.5% father's day present and imparting all those flavours during a leisurely post footie retrospective on a strange season so far.

    Next week expecting a late Titanic delivery .

    Almost smelling the cask:

    Marble Berimbolo*
    Northern Monk New World IPA*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA
    Marble Lagonda IPA*
    Roosters Baby Faced Assassin*
    Marble Manchester Bitter (mini keg)*
    BrewDog Elvis Juice*
    Marble Cubbio Damage*
    Marble Cross Collar
    BrewDog Dead Pony Club*

    A good week which would normally have been won by the Cubbio Damage but the mini keg dispense means that BOTW goes to Marble Manchester Bitter. Prefer the Lagonda generally but the Manchester was an ideal quaffing ale on a warm afternoon.

    Polished off the Firebrand delivery and made a sizeable dent in the Saltaire one. Topped up with more supermarket cans.

    Saltaire - Amarillo. (b)
    Saltaire - Citra. (b)
    Saltaire - South Island. (b)
    Saltaire - Imperial Triple Choc. (b)
    Firebrand - Patchwork Rocket Pale. (c)
    Firebrand - West Coast Session IPA. (c)
    Firebrand - Graffiti IPA. (c)
    Firebrand - Coffee Stout. (c)
    Purity - Longhorn IPA. (c)
    Bad Co. - Wild Gravity. (c)
    Bad Co - Dark Necessities. (c)
    Bad Co - Boston Tea Party. (c)
    Brewdog - Punk IPA. (c)

    Hard to look beyond the ITC, for the second week running, although the Graffiti deserves an honorable mention.
