    Just finished for the week so here we go:

    Durham - Magus
    Ilkley - Pale
    Roosters - Yankee
    Roosters - Baby Faced Assassin
    Leffe - Bruin
    Augustiner - Helles
    Thornbridge - Bison
    Tiny Rebel - Dutty (too much bloody Mosaic)
    Brewdog - Clockwork Tangerine
    Siren - Soundwave IPA
    Siren - Broken Dream
    Augustiner - Edelstoff
    Brew York - Galaga
    Brew York - Imperial Tonkoko

    All bottles and cans as I can't get to a town with decent pubs. BOTW obviously Brew York Imperial Tonkoko with Edelstoff a very close second. Hopefully I can swap a Dutty for a Beavertown Gammaray with my son and not have to suffer bloody Mosaic again.

    Fleeting outdoor visit to a pub afforded my cask BOTW:

    Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv. I've enjoyed the canned esoterica I've been drinking this past few months, but cask beer swings it (nearly) every time.

    A couple of pub visits and the remains of a bottle delivery.

    Titanic -- Anchor (b)
    Titanic -- Captain Smiths Bitter (b)
    Hornes -- Triple Goat IPA
    Hornes -- Triple Goat Pale
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord (>3PT)
    Hirsch -- Hefe Weisse (b)
    Titanic -- Stout (b)

    BOTW goes to Timothy Taylor Landlord liberally consumed at The Blue Anchor.Served in a plastic mug,southern style without a tight sparkler but that didn't matter as it was such a delight to get back to a Friday evening session with friends,lots of banter and a great sunset over the River Thames.

    Next week boat painting again in the quiet Warwickshire countryside with a couple of local pubs to have a crack at.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Though I still have back up in the fridge , all pub stuff this past week, my natural habitat.
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Flowerpots Goodens Gold
    Binghams Vanilla Stout
    Windsor & Eton Knights Of The Garter
    Wantsum Yellow Tail
    Wantsum Hurricane
    North Cotswolds Green Man IPA
    Disruption Is Brewing (Ascot) Chaos More Chaos
    Three Castles Stoned

    The Vanilla Stout was good but in the same house the Windsor & Eton Knights Of The Garter was spot on and BOTW.

    Just two beers drunk in pubs this week, in fact only one pub but I went there twice and had the same beers both times.

    I described my vbisit in the How was it for you? thread, but to save you looking for it, this is what I wrote:

    "I called in at the Crow Inn soon after 4pm opening (it'll be 12 noon from Thursday). Fairly quiet, with several staff members adding to the atmosphere rather than working. Lovely beer though.

    Atom Retrograde Motion Stout 6% on cask – so good I had it twice – and Wander Beyond Dark Drift Barrel Aged Dark Ale (is that even a name?) 9.7% on keg at just £8.70 a pint (a third was enough for me). It was absolutely gorgeous – like mixing the dregs of red wine and Guinness the morning after a student party, but in a good way."

    This is what the brewers apparently said about the latter: Dark Drift is a special small batch dark ale. We combined the flavours of three barrel aged beers to produce a balanced, complex beer with flavours of oak, raspberries, vanilla, toffee and chocolate with a warming clean finish.

    If that's the case, then there was obviously something wrong with the one that I had , so that means the Atom Retrograde Motion is my beer of the week.

    More cask to supplement the cans:

    Marble Berimbolo*
    Marble Lagonda IPA*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell (cask)*
    Brancaster Lucky Lobster (keg)
    Brancaster Oystercatcher (cask)*
    Marble/Track DIPA*
    Marble Alf*
    Marble Trials #2*
    Beavertown Neck Oil (keg)

    Struggling to find cask in Norfolk as the local boozers are only offering a limited selection, if any, for the moment so gone for keg as a fall back.
    Having said that BOTW Brancaster Oystercatcher was excellent and flew through the three pint test. Until it ran out.
