    As is my normal practice, I only post on these when I have come across an exceptional beer. And this week it is CrackleRock Dark Destroyer.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Kent;failing to find any Kent Green Hopped beers.

    Canterbury ales-The wife of Bath's Ale 3.9%abv.Slightly lacking its (or her ?) usual zest.

    On the can front,also available in keg form, Tonbridge-Easy Street Pale 3.9%abv,featuring plenty of Fuggles and Ernest.

    Short list but all quality:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Abbeydale Absolution*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*

    All were beautifully kept and all flew through the 3 pint test.

    BOTW Abbeydale Absolution. Haven't had it for a while and I'd forgotten quite how good it is.

    A cold over the weekend slowed progress

    Elusive Sabro Can I Get In The Sea
    Elusive/Siren Diversion Excursion
    Fierce & Noble Brizzle Haze
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale*
    Courage Best
    Cotswold Springs Rakau*
    Cotswold Springs Azacca* (3pt)
    Heritage Masseys Golden Bitter
    Beartown Creme Bearlee*
    Pamona Island Paedra* (keg)
    Ascot 5/4 Favourite*

    A few pleasant beers without being outstanding, but the Cotswold Springs Azacca was good enough to tempt me thrice and is BOTW.

    A pretty good week, with eight out of 13 sampled being new:

    Allsopp's - Pale Ale (c)
    Adnams - Ghost Ship (c)
    Beavertown - Neck Oil (k)
    Dark Star - Orbit (c)
    Gun - Project Babylon (c)
    ELB - Cowcatcher (c)
    Five Points - JUPA (k)
    Guiness - Guinness (k)
    Marble - Pint (c)
    Stonehenge - Danish Dynamite (c)
    Three Sods - Summery Amber Ale (c)
    Three Sods - Vapour Trail (c)
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord (c)
    .
    Both Three Sods were excellent, but BOTW goes to the ELB Cowcatcher, drunk at The Rochester Castle.
