    Not a brilliant week sadly but at least it was fairly consistent, the only real disappointments being a duff Wandle in the Lord Clyde and a rancid half of N7 in Farr's School of Dancing; all but one on cask:

    Adnams - Ghost Ship **
    Dark Star - Hophead **½
    Five Points - Best **
    Five Points - Railway Porter **
    Five Points - XPA **
    Hammerton's - N7
    Nomadic Beers - War on Wisdom **
    Northdown - Bitter Seas **
    Oakham - Scarlet Macaw **½
    Purity - Mad Goose **½
    Redemption - Big Chief **½
    Redemption - Hopspur **½
    Ringwood - Boon Doggle **
    Sambrook's - Wandle
    Samuel Smith's - Extra Stout **
    Siren - Memento ½
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord **
    Twickenham - Naked Ladies **
    Twisted Wheel - Sunday Sessions **
    Youngs - Special *½

    BOTW (and not by much) - goes to Bedlam - Amagansett *** at The Mayflower.

    Better week with Coventry featuring heavily:

    Pomona Island Poor Moon
    Byatts Karma Rama*
    Two by Two Porter*
    Phipps Steam Roller*
    Marstons Wainwright
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    Enjoyed the porter even though it was a touch sweet. BOTW Phipps Steam Roller. I've found Phipps beers a bit hit and miss but this one was very good. In appearance it's a boring, brown beer but tasty, almost briny and it flew down.
