    Stanstead Abbotts,Harlow but mainly Preston.

    Mc Mullens -- Rivertown Harlequin (3PT)
    Mc Mullens -- AK
    Mc Mullens -- IPA
    Ossett -- White Rat *
    Marble -- Continental Pint *
    Mobberley -- Cheshire Pale
    Beartown -- Creme Bearlee *
    Titanic -- Plum Porter Reserve *
    North Riding -- Mosaic Pale
    Wilde Child -- Glutinous Maximus *
    Squawk -- Pavo Pale
    Oakham -- Citra
    Howling Hops --New Old London Porter *
    Deya -- It's All Linked
    Phoenix -- Double Gold.

    I was deeply impressed with beer quality in Preston,not a single duff ale and many high NBSS scoring brews.The dark selection was terrific from which BOTW goes to Wilde Child Glutinous Maximus ,very strong toffee milk stout ,sweet yet it slipped down in The Guild Alehouse.

    Next week looks solid,two doses of footie,boating to Cov and end month session in Hertford and Surbiton.My cup will overfloweth.

    Surrey: a case of mistaken identity.

    Surrey Hills-Ranmore Ale:3.8%abv.Barley straw session pale.Willowy hops, some hint of stone.
    Pentrich Brewing-Count The Miles:5%abv.A cloudy New England pale.Hazy,soft sweet. Tropical fruit.
    Oakham-Citra. I meant to oder this, but ended with
    Brew by Numbers-21 Pale Citra:5.2%abv. Murky, from keg dispense.Citric, followed by stone fruit. I enjoyed this,against my better judgement.

    A shame to have missed Preston, but pub time is very limited at the moment, for various reasons. Just a couple of mini tea time sessions, this week.

    Thornbridge - AM:PM.
    Tigertops - Dark Wheat.*
    North Riding - US Session Pale.
    Blue Bee - Vanilla Stout.
    Blue Bee - Enigma Mosaic IPA.*
    Chin Chin - Savage Smile.
    Fat Cat - Milk Stout.
    Durham - A Day Away.
    Rudgate - Ruby.
    Ossett - Classic Twist.*

    Quite a close call, but the Enigma just scrapes home. Taken in Harry's Bar.
