    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 18th April 2021)

    Beer outside actual pubs.

    Vocation Pride & Joy just shades it from Brew York Jarsa both taken in The Baum.

    Back to the pub:

    Cask:
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Cans:
    Marble Earl Grey IPA*
    Marble Extra Special Marble
    Northern Monk Scafell*

    The cask beers were all fantastic and the Bishops took a bit of a beating but BOTW has to be Brancaster Oystercatcher as it was the first cask beer in four months and half a gallon just disappeared. Fantastic.

    I have had some excellent local beers in this first week of pub gardens opening:

    Tapped Mojo 3.6% brewed and drunk at (or just outside the front door of) the Sheffield Tap
    Kelham Island Best Bitter 3.8% brewed next door to and drunk in the garden of the Fat Cat
    Loxley Halliday Bitter 4.0% brewed just on the edge of Sheffield and drunk in the car park of the Raven Inn
    and not local but still excellent, Marble Bitter 4.0% drunk in the small back yard of the Beer House on Ecclesall Road, having made the journey over the Pennines from Manchester.

    Very hard to choose a favourite from those four. Marble has never been a favourite of mine, partly because of an early experience of a beer that tasted of lemon squash, so this Bitter was a bit of an eye-opener for me. It's not as bitter or as idiosyncratic as Boddingtons, which I think it is modelled on, but it was very good. However, for sheer quality and excellent condition, the Kelham Island Best is, by a nostril, my beer of the week.

    Kent

    Made one outdoor visit this week,with some trepidation, as I wasn't in the mood for faffing with apps and ordering blind, and had already passed several pubs before seeing the co-landlady of Larkins' Alehouse standing at the door. The back garden was full, but fortuitously the table on the street was available. The resulting glass of Kent Brewery-The Quiet American (abv 4.2%) was prime, and justified my decision not to take cask beer home in a plastic container during lockdown. My BOTW,though I rather enjoyed a can of Revolver Pale Ale (4%) from Good Things Brewing.

    I wondered if a cask beer would be able to get past some of the tin selections given my love of hop forward , and of late stronger beer but BOTW goes to a beer before tasting I wouldn't have put my money on but BOTW goes to Marble Manchester Bitter, an extremely well put together beer and extremely well kept in The Wonston Arms

    Not a huge amount of choice on my East Kent foray, but the fresh Whitstable Bay Pale Ale from Shepherd Neame suited the sunny beer gardens very well.
