    This week's pub going was based on a marathon session, in Huddersfield, whilst watching the Six Nations.

    Mallinsons - Mosaic.
    Nailmaker - Anvil.*
    Ossett - Polaris.
    Rat - Ratella.
    Goose Eye / Ossett - Pretty Fly For a Goose Eye.*
    Ossett - Butterley.
    Rat - White Rat.
    Rat - King Rat.

    The overall standard was pretty high, as it usually is in Huddersfield. However, the highlighted beers just had a slight edge. As the Anvil was particularly enjoyable, as one of only two dark beers of the day, it can take the honours, this week. Sampled in the newly opened County Beerhouse.

    Another largely good week:

    Adnams - Ghost Ship (c)
    Beavertown - Neck Oil (k)
    Boxcar - Dark Mild (c) **½
    Five Points - Best (c) **
    Five Points - Railway Porter (c) **
    Gun - Scaramanga (c)
    Howling Hops - Shimmy (c)
    Leigh on Sea - Brewberry (c)
    Little Critters - Nutty Ambassador Hazelnut Milk Stout (c) **½
    Mighty Oak - Oscar Wilde (c) **
    St. Austell - Proper Job (c) **
    St. Austell - Tribute (c) *½
    Sambrook's - Pumphouse (c) *
    Thornbridge - Jaipur (c) **
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord (c) **
    Wylam - Golden Ale (c) *

    MEBT (Most Ethical Beer of the Week): Brewhouse - Triple AAA.


    Runner up:

    Siren - Maiden - 2021 (c) ***½ At The Old Fountain. On stillage, I was shocked to see it was 11% ABV after I'd ordered it as I've never had anything more than 6%, but the alcohol level didn't dominate. On the first sip I could tell it was produced using the Solera system, as there were strong notes of dry sherry and ruby port and seemed reasonable value at £4.50 a half, considering the strength. One for sipping in a pub by a log fire I think...

    BOTW - Titanic - Plum Porter (c) **** Never had this before and Titanic beers are hard to come by here, at The Southampton Arms.

    Definitely worth a detour between The Grove and the Rat & Ratchet. Hopefully, it won't be too long before your boating travels take you to Udders feeled, again.
