    Kent:
    Larkins' Traditional 3.4%abv:Grainy.
    Goacher's-Special House Ale 3.8%abv.i)Delicious,profound depth.ii)Pretty fair.
    Goacher's-Best Dark Ale 4.1%abv. Even better now than in 1983 when this was a revolutionary dark bitter full of Tovil earthiness.

    My BOTW-Goacher's Special House ale, badged as Chimneys Ale ,iterattion i) taken at The Three Chimneys

    Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire.
    A steady week with only a couple of beers standing out from the pack.

    Castle Rock Harvest Pale
    Chadlington Oxford Blue
    St Austell Tribute
    Hogs Back TEA
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Ascot Gold Cup
    Elusive Spin Wizard*
    Milestone Colonial
    Hop Monster Mad Dog Mild*

    BOTW Elusive Spin Wizard Very hoppy, featuring Talus & Strata hops, soft and juicy in The Alfred.

    This week coming I'm expecting a much longer list with a two night stay in Norwich.

    Late entry for reasons but a good week with some more Northern exposure:

    Settle Elderflower
    Fell Volk
    Three Kings Apache*
    Mill Valley Chocolate Orange Stout*
    Phoenix Arizona*
    Redwillow Weightless*
    Saltaire Citra
    Mighty Medicine Pirate Juice
    Marble Berimbolo*
    Marble Lagonda*
    Marble Alf*
    Marble/North Riding Silly Point (keg)*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*

    Some very good beers there with the Chocolate Orange Stout, Apache and Weightless worth mentions.

    Marble beers on cask at the Marble Arch never fail to exceed expectations and they all did. Tricky to pick one out as they were all excellent but I’ll go for Marble Berimbolo as BOTW. Fresh, thirst quenching and very sessionable at 4.5%. Nigh on impossible to keep in the glass.

    Another late submission.

    Todmorden and Rochdale

    Settle -- Elderflower (3PT)
    Hawkeshead -- Pale*
    Three Kings -- Apache APA
    Mill Valley -- Chocolate Orange Stout *
    Titanic -- Raspberry Pale*
    RedWillow -- Weightless *
    Strata -- Strike
    Vocation -- Heart & Soul*

    A week shortened by injury but with a very worthy BOTW in Mill Valley Chocolate Orange Stout true to all those flavours and totally moorish in The Pub.

    Great to see ROBCamra and Ms Camra who were excellent guides in The Dale,a top drinking town.
