    Kent: Storm Eunice put paid to our weekend's plans, but some good old school beer was salvaged.

    Old Dairy-Mystic-3.6% abv.Lacked some of it's usual fruity complexity.
    Larkin's-Traditional-3.4% abv.At it's toffeeish best, if a touch too cold.
    Harvey's-Sussex Best Bitter-4% abv.Nutty tones.My BOTW, taken, with the Larkin's at The Leicester Arms Hotel

    Relatively quiet week with more Eastern beers:

    Barshams Golden Close IPA*
    Barshams Topper
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    BOTW Adnams Ghost Ship. Fresh and beautifully kept, 3 pints proved no problem.

    Actually made it to the pub this week, for the first time in over two months. (Don't ask) Enjoyed a mid-week wander round Holmfirth, plus, a sneaky pint in Huddersfield.

    North Riding - Cappuccino Stout.
    Wye Valley - HPA.
    Moorhouses - White Witch.
    Magic Rock - Ringmaster.*
    Magic Rock - Dark Arts.
    Nook - Oat Stout.
    Nook - Coffee Stout.
    Nook - Red.
    Nook - Baby Blond.
    Chin Chin - Two Little Ducks.

    Nothing that really blew me away, but, I always enjoy Ringmaster and Dark Arts. Taken at Magic Rock Tap Holmfirth.

    Only beer taken during a barren week was Titanic Plum Porter * so BOTW and an easy three pint test (NBSS 4) in The George.

    Calm before the storm next week what with boating and end month sessions in Hertford,Brentford and more footie.
