    For what it's worth, by BOTW is Dark Star APA, which just gets my vote ahead of the ever reliable Brew Dog Trashy Blonde.
    Requires me to remember to start and stick the thread, oooooooops.

    My beer of the week has got to be Brewdog "PUNK" followed by Thornbridge "JAIPUR" be very careful how much you drink if alternating the two on the same day!!!

    I was searching all over the place for last weeks thread. Thought I was going mad.

    Anyway, not a great selection this week. Most of my local pubs hadn't had a very good turnover so iit was largely the same beers as last week. I could have gone with the Westerham Grasshopper again but I refuse to have repeat BofW's. I had a couple of decent bottles at home including a Badger Dandelion which was interesting to say the least. In a deviation from normal drinking habits I have opted for a few ciders this week with Westons cider with Raspberry being the pick, not too sickly and not too strong either. I think overall I will go for the Exmoor Gold at the Metropolitan Bar in Baker Street prior to the England match on Wednesday. I needed a good drink before heading off to watch that crock of overpaid divas!

    Found myself back at Croydon's George on friday after a meeting re Sage line50 course (which I can't afford), and have to go for Thornbridge Jaipur IPA.
    As usual these days they had a decent selection which included Hophead from the excellent Brewster's Brewery, but that was fighting a losing battle in the aftermath of Jaipur (great value at £1.40 with a voucher!).

    After a couple of lean weeks I'm a bit spoiled for choice this week after a splendid time crawling round Leeds - only one poor pint the rest excellent. The top three were Mallinsons Paddock Reflection (No 5 in a series of ?) Riverhead Deer Hill Porter and the winner by a short head Wylam Angel

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Started sensibley on Thornbridge Hopton then Saltaire Amarillo Gold before moving on to a few pints of Salamander Showdown(5.3%) which would have been BOTW but one of the other beers ran out and was replaced by Thornbridge Jaipur , very dangerous , beer that strong should`nt be that easy to drink
    BOTW Thornbridge Jaipur

    Just got back from our summer break in Cornwall. Had a much better time on the beer front down there this year, compared to last. Loved St Austell's 'Proper Job', but thought their 'Black Prince' was even better. A fabulous mild. My BOTW: St Austell 'Black Prince'.
