    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 31st October 2021)

    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

  2. #2


    This week:

    Woodforde's Nelson's Revenge*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Woodforde's Once Bittern
    Moongazer Whiteface
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    All were decent but BOTW Brancaster Oystercatcher was on top form on the several occasions I found it.

    Harlow,Hertford and Hoxton.

    Mc Mullen's -- IPA
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Mighty Oak -- Jake the Snake
    New River -- Blnd Poet
    Titanic -- Plum Porter *
    Five Points -- Pale *
    Crouch Vale -- Brewers Gold *
    Five Points -- Railway Porter *
    Weird Beard -- Mariana Trench *

    I can't award BOTW two weeks running to Titanic Plum Porter ,so this week it goes to Five Points Railway Porter on sparkling form in The Wenlock Arms,along with a host of other ales.A classic London Porter with the dry,bitter finish which always demands another.

    Next week boating into Rugeley and Tamworth plus footie so my cup may runneth over.

    A much better selection of beers, this week.

    Brakspear - Oxford Gold.
    Oakham - Citra.*
    Leeds - Midnight Bell.*
    Beer Ink - Vellum.*
    Ossett - Voodoo.
    Tigertops - Golden Oktober.
    Tigertops - Brown Stout.
    Nailmaker - Chocolate Safari.*
    Chantry - Special Reserve.
    North Riding - US Session Pale.*
    Tigertops - Green Cascade.
    Five Towns - I'm Afraid of Americans.
    Chin Chin - Quantum Shift.

    I really enjoyed all the highlighted beers, but the US Session Pale, made with Loral and Mosaic hops had incredible flavour for a 3.8% beer. Sampled in Harry's Bar

    North Yorkshire

    Yorkshire Dales-Swale Trail Pale 3.8%abv. Grand north country pale ale.Initial sweet impression,long berry finish.
    Yorkshire Dales-Butter Tubs 3.7%abv. Not as zesty as I remember it.Some sort of mineral back taste.

    My BOTW-Yorkshire Dales Swale Trail Pale, taken at Kings Head
