    BOTW goes to Marble Cross Collar,a very fine 5.2% West Coast Pale with a light caramel malt base balanced by classic (but un-named ) hops.Classy.

    Next week having worked through a good amount of my Xmas present stash,awaiting a refill from Marble.

    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Takeaway Cask, cans and a bottle.

    Disruption Chaos More Chaos
    Disruption How To Dress For The Apocalypse

    North Brew Lost Cosmonauts
    Magic Rock Dark Arts
    Magic Rock What Are The Odds
    Vocation Life & Death
    Thornbridge Jaipur

    BrewDog Elvis Juice

    I'm going to stick with cask for BOTW and give it to How To Dress For The Apocalypse. A 5.5% Black IPA, a style I sometimes struggle with but this hit the spot.

    Back to cans and bottles for the foreseeable :


    Oakham Citra
    Oakham Green Devil IPA
    Titanic Plum Porter


    Oakham Green Devil T90
    Marble Berimbolo
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA
    Marble Uppe Halen Natten
    Marble Rufus
    Oakham Citra T90
    Marble Extra Special Marble
    Marble Lagonda
    Northern Monk New World IPA
    Marble Cross Collar

    No stars as they were all good and I enjoyed the Rufus and Extra Special from Marble.
    BOTW goes to Oakham Citra T90 followed closely by the Green Devil T90. Both the unfiltered versions so slightly cloudier and more expensive that the originals but they're softer and more akin to cask so worth the extra. The difference is slightly more marked with the Citra so it gets the nod.

    XT 8 Porter (4.5%) *

    Rebellion Winter Royal (5.4%) *
    Hook Norton Twelve Days (5.5%) *
    Rebellion Roasted Nuts Extra (5.8%) *

    BrewDog Clockwork (4.5%)
    Magic Rock High Wire Grapefruit (5.5%)
    Thornbridge Jaipur (5.9%)
    Vocation Life & Death (6.5%)
    London Beer Factory Zia (9.2%) *

    The BOTW and Pubs Galore Bar threads continue to be must-reads for me as I've read about, sought out and sampled so many fantastic beers thanks to the writings of the contributors on this forum, so thank you to those who have written about this gorgeous tiramisu-flavoured pastry stout, which I was fortunate to source in one of large Tesco stores in Aylesbury, before it moved to Tier 4. I can now see what all the fuss was about :
