    Hobsons Mild 3.2 at the Moderation in Reading was cracking on Sunday during the quiz...

    Hopefully a few more to come this week especially as I am off to the Egham USC beer fest on Thursday...looking forward to Ascot's Triple Trouble, Blackaddlers Lemme Oat! and the potential star of the fest in Pitstops Celebration - a Belgian Chocolate Stout.

    mmm...

    Anything by Woodforde's! Lovely beers, but the Nog is future of dark beers! Many a pint quaffed during my Norfolk sojourn.

    Also, had a couple of cracking pints of Moorhouse's Black Cat in the Nottingham Arms in Tewkesbury yesterday. Another quality dark beer!

    A day in Dundee and Arbroath yesterday and if I liked lime it would be Caledonian Mexican Bandit which really screwed my taste buds up it was so limey.

    As I don't like lime, my BOTW is Wood Wonderful 4.8%

    Beer of the week so far is the first pint I had in the Baum last night after 2 weeks on the dreaded fizz.

    As it happens it was Greenfield Summer Ice, but it wouldn't have mattered what it was really.

    A couple of pints of Kelham Island Pale Rider followed.

    Just to be ironic I finished off with a cask lager, Hawkshead Lakeland Lager, pretty good it was as well.

    Twickenham Summer Gold is a front runner for me this week. Haven't seen what my local 'Spoons have in this week yet and I have a day in Farnborough on Saturday so time for it to be usurped.

    My BOTW thus far is, err, Doom Bar. I seem to be consuming this pint more than any other at the moment - it's everywhere I bloody go! It started out as the occasional pint, but now it feels like I'm being stalked!

    Not out today and tomorrow we will be travelling from Forfar to Balado Park, Kinross. It is Camping and Caravanning Club Feast of Lanterns and a big do, and won't be sure till we get there if it is easy to get public transport.

    Had planned to do Edinburgh from there on Saturday if we can get out. I did mean to declare Wood Wonderful as BOTW so far. Will wait and see if we can get off site and away without the car.

    First beers of the week last night.( I think I was sub-consciously giving my liver a rest after the excesses of Cornwall.) Tried Barngates 'Catnap', Fernandes 'Copperpot' & 'Barge Blonde' and Leeds' 'Midnight Bell' - which is in the lead at the moment. However, the Copperpot was also very enjoyable.
