    Modest week for variety:

    Barsham Golden Close
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Castle Rock Elsie Mo*

    Several Bishops helped ease the pain and tension of the Lions match but BOTW goes to Castle Rock Elsie Mo. A classic which went down well with Sunday lunch.

    I think it'll have to be the Bass I had in the Sun Inn here in Stockton on Saturday morning.

    A mini crawl took me on to Hope&Union then Top of the Hops.

    Blackburn and Preston next weekend...

    A lot of good beers and nothing that was dissapointing

    Cask
    Triple fff Hallelujah
    Church End Goats Milk*
    Dark Star APA*
    Tring Side Pocket For A Toad*
    Northern Monk Eternal*
    Abbeydale Speculation*
    Wantsum Ekuanot
    Slaughterhouse Boar D'eau*
    Brentwood Falcon Punch*
    Brentwood Marvelous Maple Mild*
    Elusive Spellbinder*
    Three Castles Tropic'ale
    Tomos And Lilford Gwenith Aur
    Stockport Chinook
    Ascot Front Runner*
    Saltaire Citra


    Keg
    Big Hand Spectre*
    8 Arch Corbel*
    Verdant Lucky Slurps*
    Elusive Spellbinder*
    Deya Steady Rolling Man*

    The eagle eyed among you will notice I had Elusive Spellbinder in both formats in the same pub, both were good but the cask was superior to my taste Cask £5.00 a pint, keg £7.00, Aqualung will be spinning! But neither made BOTW , that goes to Verdant Lucky Slurps a 6.5 % IPA on keg and suitabley murky as well as very tasty in Altons Ten Tun Taphouse.

    Christchurch and Farnborough over the weekend:

    Cask
    Animal (XT) Firefly
    Ascot Princely Porter
    Big Smoke Underworld*
    Sharp's Doom Bar*
    XT 3
    XT APA

    Keg
    Vibrant Forest Mantra
    Vibrant Forest Kaleidoscope
    Barefaced Petrichor
    Dark Revolution Orbital

    Some interesting, murky ones sampled and taken away from Christchurch's Crafty Tap.

    BOTW was from Farnborough's excellent Prince of Wales where I got done by not realising the guest beers on in the hidden snug, where I found my BOTW, but could have potentially found a couple of rivals, but hey-ho; something to remember next time we visit the in-laws.

    BOTW: Big Smoke Underworld

    Moby's heralded Ten Tuns Taphouse isn't a million miles away from the other half's folks' house, so hoping to get a visit in before the end of the year.
