    No cask this week as I couldn't find any in France:

    Lagunitas Session IPA k
    Affligem k *
    Leffe 0.0 b (in error)
    Eurofizz (unidentified)
    Polar Monkeys IPA k *
    White Rabbit IPA k *
    Sainte Cru Don't Panic IPA k*

    All three IPAs were very drinkable and, I assume, from French breweries although finding out more on the ground isn't easy although I have so far found the Sainte Cru brewery.
    BOTW Sainte Cru - Don't Panic IPA keg. A very drinkable 6.5% IPA, not overly fizzy and improved gently with warming.

    Lancashire,London,Kent:

    Clark's-Westgate Gold: 4.2%abv. I wasn't sure of the provenance of this, as it was fetched from a lower bar to an upper room.
    Thornbridge-Sequoia:4.5%abv. Malt led and muted.not what I expect from Thornbridge, though in fairness I was rushing before a train.
    Old Dairy-Uber Brew:3.8%abv: Nettley goodness.
    Harveys-Sussex Best Bitter:4%abv.Grainy.

    My BOTW: Old Dairy-Uber Brew.

    Local and at home. Cask unless stated:

    Park Ballet Loop (3.4%)
    Ashover Lady of the Lamp (3.7%)
    Siren Memento (3.8%) *
    Yonder Boogie (3.8%) (can) *
    Amwell Springs Rude Not To (4.0%)
    Blue Monkey Primate (4.0%) *
    London Beer Factory Day Dreamer (4.0%) (kiddie can)

    Animal Ocelot (4.6%)
    Northern Monk Faith in Custard (4.6%) (can)
    Vale Gravitas (4.8%) *

    BrewDog Mallow Laser Quest (6.0%) (can) *
    Tiny Rebel Time Trippin (6.2%) (can)
    Tiny Rebel Froozi (6.5%) (can)

    A heady mix of new cans purchased from my nearest Tesco Extra (Aylesbury), a delivery from Beercraft of Bath and some excellent ales at a couple of local boozers.

    The bitters did it again for me this week. A couple of people mentioned Arbor's Blue Sky Drinking last week and this and the Yonder Boogie were both quality and moreish takes on modern best bitter. Seeing a heralded brew from Blue Monkey at my local (Primate) was also a touch of fortune. Ultimately, it was the pint can that did it for now:
