    Sole pub beer of the week- Wantsum Single Green Hop Ernest 4.2%abv.I'm usually a bit wary of single hop beers, as the base beer seems to be rather one dimensional in order to show off the hop.As I hadn't seen any Kent Green Hop beers this season, and as I've enjoyed Ernest hops in the past,I tried it. OK, but have had better.

    Digbeth,Preston Bagot and Belgravia.

    Salopian -- Light Fantastic * (3PT)
    Siren -- Soundwave IPA * (keg)
    St Austell (for Brunning & Price) -- Traditional
    Timothy Taylor -- Boltmaker *
    Church House --IPA (keg)
    Harvey's -- Sussex Best
    Adnam's -- Ghost Ship *
    Greene King -- IPA

    BOTW goes to Salopian Light Fantastic,a perfect session ale in the very friendly Spotted Dog

    Next week looking barren.

    A bit of overlap with Mr. F's list:

    Salopian Light Fantastic
    Siren Soundwave IPA* (keg)
    Timothy Taylor Boltmaker *
    Church House IPA* (keg)
    Blue Monkey Infinity*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Infinity which, as ever, whistled through the 3 pint test but BOTW goes to Timothy Taylor Boltmaker which I rarely encounter and which really hit the spot.

    Could be better;

    Bad Seed - Session IPA
    Bristol Beer Factory - 12 Apostles
    Theakston - Best Bitter
    Marstons - Razorback
    Hambleton - Nightmare Porter
    Saltaire - Triple Chocoholic
    Rat - White Rat
    Camerons - Motorhead Roadcrew
    Elgood - Plum Porter
    Northern Lights - Blonde

    I suppose having lost count of how many pints of it I had last week BOTW is Hambleton - Nightmare Porter (again), taken in what appears to have become my new local.

    Mixed bag of new beers order online and a couple of beers out and about:

    Fuller's London Pride (cask, premium ale) (4.1%)
    Tiny Rebel Stay Puft (can, marshmallow porter) (5.2%)
    Mad Squirrel Big Sea (keg, West Coast IPA) (5.5%)
    Wiper & True Narrow Sea (can, saison) (5.6%)
    Vocation x Marble Hop, Skip & Juice (can, pale ale)(5.7%)

    Salt n Pomona Island Shoop (can, NE IPA) (6.4%)
    Deya Meet Me in the City (can, IPA) (6.5%)
    Ridgeside Muffin Compares 2 U (can, milk stout) (6.5%)
