    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.

    Only beer of the week:

    Two bottles of Proper Job consumed yesterday. A much favoured beer on cask though never before sampled from bottle, but the puzzling increase in ABV from 4.5% (cask) to 5.5% (bottle) gave the beer a rather harsh quality which I really didn't like; I won't be buying it in bottle again.

    Finally, after fifteen long months, I managed to get to the pub this weekend. Not only that, it was in the fine company of Cap'n Bucking Fastard, Thuck Phat and the rest of the crew. Several of Wakefield's finest were visited.

    Cask:

    Fernandes - Malt Shovel MILD.*
    Wishbone - Abyss.
    4Ts - English Stout.
    North Riding - Harry's Cascade.*
    Darkland - Jera.
    Great Northern - Holderness Dark.
    Alechemy - Bad Day At the Office.*

    MSM is one of my favourite beers and it was my first pint after lockdown. Although it wasn't quite at the top of its game, that first mouthful was a pretty special moment. Taken, appropriately, in the Fernandes Brewery Tap.

    Kent,East Sussex:

    Seems a long time ago, but...

    Harveys Sussex Best Bitter 4%abv. The sole cask beer in The Milk House in these uncertain times, but in cracking form. I contrasted this with the "bright" version at a wedding. More was drunk of the latter, but the pub version was superior.
    Long Man Best Bitter 4%abv. A reassuringly old school stalwart. After- note of almonds. My BOTW,taken at The Ram Inn

    Cracking week finishing in the fabulous North and a beer or two in A & H's convivial company:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Wishbone Abyss
    Rat White Rat*
    Five Towns Algorithm Dodger*
    Harry's Cascade*
    TT Landlord*
    Rat King Rat
    Marble Pint
    Briggs Dirty Electro*
    Brass Castle Bad Kitty*
    Oakham Green Devil IPA*
    Cross Bay Hops Be Trippin
    Three Kings Silver Darling*
    Vocation Heart & Soul
    Roosters Strength in Numbers*
    Vocation Hop Skip Juice* (keg)

    Some fine beers there with the White Rat, Strength in Numbers and Bad Kitty worth a mention.
    BOTW was Five Towns Algorithm Dodger a blueberry DIPA brewed locally and in very good nick. The blueberries were definitely there but not overwhelming and the initial gentle sweetness gave way to a moreish bitterness which made this one dangerous at 9%.

    Late on parade.................................better late than never.

    Petersham,Hertford,Wakefield,Huddersfield and Hebden Bridge.

    BrewDog -- Dead Pony Club (c)
    Vocation -- Tr-Hop-Ical (c)
    Twickenham -- Grandstand
    Oakham -- Bishops Farewell *(3PT)
    Rat -- White Rat *(Taken in several pubs,always terrific)
    Durham -- Liquid Amber
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA *
    Five Towns -- Algorithm Dodger *
    North Riding -- Harry's Cascade *
    Rat -- King Rat
    Marble -- Pint
    Briggs Signature Brew -- Dirty Electro *
    Amundsen -- Chocolate Toffee Peppermint Cookie Imperial Stout * (keg)
    Cross Bay -- Hops be Tripping*
    Three Kings -- Silver Darling *
    Saltaire -- Cascade
    Vocation -- Heart & Soul *
    RedWillow -- Breakfast Stout *

    Some outstanding ale,many which would normally win BOTW easily but there can only be one winner so another nomination for Five Towns Algorithm Dodger on top nick in Henry Boons.The blueberry hit was perfectly balanced,unlike some of the crew who got unhinged by this deceptive brew.

    Great to also catch up with a&h ,also on very good form.

    Always a pleasure to meet up with you, TP, 'C' and 'N'. Was an absolute tonic.
