    Enjoyed Mallinsons Ahtanum (Now that's what I call hops 12) & Thornbridge Larkspur, among others at CASK yesterday, but will stick with my earlier declaration from a top day in Derby.

    I thought for a while it would be Mordue Workie Ticket, perversely sampled in Hampshire and without a sparkler but still excellent. A late finish by a Yorkshire brewery changed all that so my BOTW is Yorkshire Dales Askrigg Ale

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Cracking pint of Rebellion Red at the Back of Beyond (yes, a JDW) yesterday, so that's my BOTW.

    I also got id'ed yesterday, which is a shocker.

    An honoury mention for Jarrow Bitter, Yorkshire Dales Antipodean & Mordue 5 bridges.

    All tried in Newcastle at the Crown Posada, Bacchus & Fitzgeralds respectively.

    But the winner this week is going to be Blue Monkey Simian Summer tried at the Bridge, also in the toon.

    Not a very expansive selection this week and not much really stood out. Caught in the rain on the Isle Of Wight on Saturday, we made an emergency stop in the Three Bridges at Brighstone where they conjured up Steam Box Derail Ale which was bit heavy going for an afternoin pint but pretty good stuff all the same.

    challenged about my age - in a Wetherspoons. I suspect it might be that I went in wearing my Aber Town top and they wanted an excuse not to serve me in case I was a cliched "footy fan out on the piss"...my choice of a real ale and a CAMRA id card (plus general incredulity) was enough to persuade them...!

    Tintagel Gull Rock in The Traf yesterday pm is an earlyish contender for me.

    A much quieter week for me, which was inevitable after last week's efforts. Enjoyed Mauldons 'Black Adder' and Saitaire 'Crystal Red' but the clear winner was Milk Street 'Funky Monkey'. Great flavour for its strength.

    Good call-my BOTW a few weeks back. Unfortunately no pub this week!
