    Kent (Cranbrook again):

    McCanns (sub brand of Angels and Demons)-The Troubadour 4.5%abv. 21st Century Best Bitter. Skilfull use of hops mitigates the malt sweetness.Full bodied.A new beer for me from a respected local brewery. I'll forgive 'em their woeful online shopping experience.

    Plenty of pub visits so limiting the list to cask and keg this week:

    Cask:
    Vocation Bread & Butter*
    Neepsend Jotun*
    Fernandes Octohop
    North Riding Harry's Cascade*
    Darkland Jera
    Windswept Wolf

    Keg:
    Vault City Sloe Gin Sour*
    Redwillow Contactless*
    Brew York The Dream Child

    A wide variety and some good beers with BOTW going to Neepsend Jotun. A Sheffield brewery which is new to me and this was a refreshing 6% pale with plenty of hops sliding down nicely on a warm evening.

    Doncaster,Wakefield and Hertford.


    BrewDog -- Dead Pony Club (c)
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA * (c)
    Oakham -- Green Devil IPA *(b)
    Vocation -- Bread & Butter
    Neepsend -- Jotun *
    Vault City -- Sloe Gin Sour* (keg)
    BrewYork -- Rubarbara Streisand *(keg)
    Shiny -- Afterglow
    BrewYork -- The Dream Child (rocky roads icecream pastry stout) 14% (keg)
    Vocation -- Life & Death * (c)
    Vibrant Forest -- Precipice of Light (c)
    Fernandes -- Octohop
    Fernandes -- Malt Shovel MILD *
    North Riding -- Harry's Cascade *
    Darkland -- Jera
    Windswept -- Wolf
    Crouch Vale -- Amarillo *
    New River -- Twin Spring
    Tring -- Mansion MILD *

    The Dream Child was strong and rich and I could taste all the flavours in the description and several more but BOTW goes to Vault City Sloe Gin Sour in the Draughtsman's Alehouse. Maybe a pint at 8% was a little rash,but the sourness wasn't extreme and it did slip down.There was some weaving later in the evening.

    Next week trying to keep calm before the week's booze cruise across the Pennines,which promises some first class ale .

    Just a combination of the usual suspects, mostly.

    Thornbridge - Jaipur. (c)
    Vocation - Divide & Conquer. (c)
    Ossett - Silver King. (b)
    Kirkstall - Dissolution IPA. (b)
    BrewDog - Hazy Jane. (c)
    Thornbridge - Green Mountain.

    Been a while since I've had any Dissolution, so that made a nice change.

    A trip to Manchester, where four out of the five pubs visited were disappointing for one reason or another. The exception was the Hare & Hounds on Shudehill, where the Holts Bitter was drinking very well. What a superb beer, and an excellent pub too.
