    Back from today's sesh so I can nominate my BOTW from this short list:

    Roosters - First World Problems
    Theakston - Old Peculier
    Black Sheep Best Bitter
    Slaters - 1 Hop (used to be Top Totty?)
    Hambleton - Nightmare Porter
    Durham - Pacific Fusion
    Live Brew - Pale (Oat & Chinook)

    The Top Totty was excellent but just in front Hambleton - Nightmare Porter, the only decent beer they brew for my money.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    A mixed bunch this week

    Butcombe Rare Breed
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Brunning & Price Traditional Bitter
    Sherfield Lockdown
    Longdog Bunny Chaser
    Timothy Taylor Landlord
    Milestone Shine On
    Milestone Honey Porter
    Tomos & Lilford Stout Point
    Triple fff We'll Meet Again
    Front Row Sin Bin
    Piddle Cocky
    Ascot Grumpy Landlord

    The best of the bunch was Tomos & Lilford Stout Point, despite its name it's actually a Vanilla Porter, quite sweet but smooth and rather nice.

    Goachers -Special House Ale 3.9%abv.Full of transcendental Tovil goodness.
    Iron Pier-Long Ferry 3.8%abv.Chewy malt,spicy hops.
    Papworth-The Whitfield Citrabolt 3.8%abv. Long bitter finish, a golden ale.
    Adnams-Ghost Ship 4.5%abv.Pretty epic.

    My BOTW-Iron Pier Long Ferry. New to me, from a brewery I respect.
