    Goacher's -Fine Light Ale:3.7% abv. Earthy goodness.
    Only With Love-Reboot:4.5%. Mainly because of the name.Murky tropical trifle.Spicy finish.

    My BOTW-Goacher's-Fine Light Ale.

    Quality this week mainly courtesy of the Seven Stars:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Holdens Golden Glow*
    Timothy Taylor Dark Mild*
    Brunswick ESP The Ghan*

    All good and all deserving of BOTW most weeks. The Golden Glow was less sweet than I remember and surprisingly good but BOTW goes to Brunswick ESP The Ghan. Single hopped with Galaxy according to the pump clip, this is a 4.5% bitter, pale which flew down.

    Best week I've had in ages. Almost back to pre-lurgy times.

    Red Willow - Amarillo Simcoe.*
    Ossett / Salopian - Hybrid.
    Horbury - Hop Assailant.
    Horbury - White Hawk.
    Rat - King Rat. *
    Elland - 1872.*
    Revolutions - Frank.
    Moorhouses - Black Witch.*
    Northern Monk - Great Northern.
    Bingley - Dark Mild.*
    Wensleydale - Bohemian Saaz.
    Thornbridge - Cocoa Wonderland.*
    Salamander - Silverback.
    Rudgate - White Dragon.
    Roosters - Little Changes.
    Nailmaker - Plum Porter.
    Riverhead - Standedge.*
    Rat - Crazy Rat.*
    Roosters - 24/7.
    Salt - ESB.

    Very hard to pick a winner from that list, but the Amarillo Simcoe, on a fresh palate, particularly hit the spot. Tried in Luis Bar @ Fernandes, which is back to its old best, once again.

    Siren Suspended In Brut 1
    The Kernel Pale Ale Galaxy*
    Hop Kettle Tafel
    Elephant School Porter In A Storm

    The Church End Mild was excellent as was the Elusive collab Multiplayer, even more outstanding though was Elusive/TTB Elusive Road To Darkness.jpg, a 7.0% Export India Porter mixing malts and hops to perfection, on cask in the Alfred.
