    Bath, Surrey, West Sussex and Hants.

    Hogs Back TEA
    Fullers Wild River
    Oakham Citra*
    Abbey Bellringer
    Wye Butty Bach
    Marstons Bass
    Parnay Nine Lives Porter
    Imaginary Friends Cafe Con Leche
    Buxton Future Life Preferences*
    Listers Dark Mild*
    Black Isle Yellowhammer
    Odyssey Ghettos Of The Mind*
    Team Toxic Black Custard*
    Wantsum Motueka
    Lakeland Blonde
    Disruption My Walkabour Haze*
    Disruption Cereal Thrilla*
    Thornbridge Jaipur*
    Hop Back Citra
    Mallinsons Simcoe

    The Cereal Thrilla is an exceptionally good keg Breakfast Stout and been Knocking on the door for the last two weeks but I have to go with the Jaipur as BOTW, a classic IPA and still doing the business. Both from The Alfred.

    Drinking limited to Saturday only:

    Tring Moongazing (4.2%)
    XT 22 (4.2%)
    XT 7 (4.5%)
    Animal Ocelot (4.6%)

    Also had a great home-brewed chocolate vanilla porter (5.4% ABV) at a mate's shed bar, that they'd cheekily named Janet Street.

    BOTW: XT 22

    Some interesting beers this week, most found in the ever reliable Seven Stars.

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    XT Animal Guinea Fowl
    Fownes Seven Crowns Sunburst IPA*
    Lakealand IPA
    Leatherbritches Bohemian Dark*

    Impressed by the Seven Crowns Sunburst IPA although I'm not convinced that at 4.5% it qualifies. A decent pint nonetheless.
    BOTW goes to Leatherbritches Bohemian Dark, a 5.9% rich and complex porter which didn't touch the sides.

    Just a Friday tea time mini-crawl, this week:

    Rat - White Rat.*
    Oakham - Citra.*
    Titanic - Plum Porter.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Fyne Ales - Hurricane Jack.
    Chin Chin - Alone in the Dark.
    Five Towns - Pennine IPA.
    Roosters - One Eighty.
    Gun - Scaramanga.
    Wensleydale - Falconer.

    Not a lot in it, but because the White Rat was the first one of the day and in excellent nick, it gets the nod. Taken in Henry Boons.
