    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.

    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    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.
