    Working through a collection of cans.

    Marble -- Uppe Hela Natten (c)
    Elusive -- Spellbinder (c)
    Elusive -- Level Up * (c)
    Elusive/Siren -- Overflow (c)
    Salt -- Bowline * (c)
    Elusive -- Bee Strong *(c)
    Marble --Sky High Mountain IPA * (c)
    Elusive -- Plasma (c)
    BrewDog -- Hazy Jane (c)
    Salt -- The Hexagon Project #1 * (c)
    Marble -- North South Petite IPA * (c)

    The standout BOTW was Salt The Hexagon Project #1,a great Baltic Porter aged in Bordeaux casks with a smooth richness and multiple flavours.

    Next week sufficient supplies but need to plan the next delivery,might try Siren for something new and unusual.

    Some good gear:

    Bottles:
    Titanic Plum Porter
    Marble Decadence Ruby Port Barrel Aged 2020
    Oakham Citra
    Oakham Green Devil IPA

    Cans:
    Marble Lagonda
    Marble Extra Special Marble
    Marble Cross Collar
    Northern Monk Tropical World
    Marble Berimbolo
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA
    Marble Chocolate
    Marble Trials #2
    Marble Cubbio Damage
    Northern Monk New World IPA

    Enjoyed finishing off some older Marble stock but BOTW has to be Marble Decadence Ruby Port Barrel Aged 2020. A 10.5% Imperial Stout bought as a treat to help endure these tricky times. Works very well as an after dinner drink with noticeable port sweetness. That along with the strength meant that it had to be tackled bit by bit and 660ml in one hit didn't seem wise.

    Bottles

    Theakston Pale Ale
    BrewDog Elvis Juice*

    Cans
    BrewDog Layer Cake*
    Salt /Pomona Island Shoop*
    Salt Crash*
    Wold Top Golden Summer
    Wiper And True Kaleidoscope*
    Wiper And True Sundance*
    Crafty Brewing Hop Tipple

    A steady week , both the Wiper & True beers were outstanding, I'm going to have to give them a serious go in the next week or three, BOTW [B]Wiper And True Sundance.jpg/B] a 5.6% IPA , great quality, clean drinking with distinct flavours, excellent.
    In the coming week I have a few top end strength cans from Gipsy hill and awaiting delivery from Vibrant Forest later this week.

    Not managing many beers, I think only 4 last week,
    Bottles: McEwans Champion, Brewdog Elvis Juice
    Cans: Clockwork Tangerine and Brewdog vs Cloudwater NEIPA
    I don't like the aesthetics of murk (or lack of) but will give it to the latter botw.jpg for the nose and flavour, I'll just have to sup blindfold, but difficult when the match is on...

    It's not really new - just an Ossett Brewing brand?

    Wasn't aware of that? I know Rat are owned by Ossett.
    It appears Salts Director (appointed 2019) is a former Ossett director(resigned 2016), registered office is the same for both.

    If you look at its Website T&Cs, you will see it stated that: "The SALT Beer Factory brand is owned by Ossett Brewing Company Limited, Kings Yard, Low Mill Road, Ossett, West Yorkshire, WF5 8ND, company registration number: 03304094."
