    Default Beer of the Week (w/e 22nd May 2022)

    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    Dull week with just old favourite BOTW Oakham Bishops Farewell featuring. A top quality fresh barrel saw the 3 pint test demolished.

    A lot going on behind the scenes this week, so limited imbibition, but did manage to break into a mixed 12-bottle case from Blue Monkey that had been sitting around for a month or so, plus a couple of pub visits after a pre-op isolation came to an end (not mine):

    Blue Monkey BG Sips (4.0%) (bottle)*
    Blue Monkey Primate (4.0%) (bottle)
    Portobello JPA (Japanese Pale Ale) (4.2%)
    Blue Monkey Infinity IPA (4.6%) (bottle)*
    Leighton Buzzard Restoration Ale (4.6%)*
    Mikkeller Peter, Pale & Mary (4.6%) (can)
    Blue Monkey Ape Ale (5.4%) (bottle)
    Blue Monkey Infinity Plus 1 (5.6%) (bottle)

    Great though the Blue Monkeys beer were (and are), it was great to get back to cask, so clear winner this week:

    BOTW: Leighton Buzzard Restoration Ale

    Enfield Chase,Wood Green and Croydon.

    Fixed Wheel --Technicolour Beat
    Marple -- Pint
    Two by Two -- Strata DDH
    Bohem -- Amos Pilsner (keg)
    Five Points --Railway Porter *
    Beak Brewery --Parade IPA (keg)*
    Five Points -- Best *
    Twickenham -- Naked Ladies *
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA *
    Oakham -- White Dwarf *(3 PT)
    Vocation -- Death by Cherry Sour (keg) *

    BOTW goes yet again to Five Points Railway Porter in great nick in The Prince. Honorable mention to Five Points Best,at the same venue and also in top condition ,a real winner at a lower ABV and most certainly not a BBB when on that sort of form.

    Next week a cheeky trip to Derby and then end month sessions in Hertford and Charing Cross (guess where !).Should get some quality pints.

    Kent-Black Mirror:4.5%abv.Fine stout,tropical fruit finish.
    The Kernel-Brown Ale:5.3% abv.I'm at a loss how to rate this,as I'm not familiar with the style, or really Brewery.Some tartness, caramelised nuttiness.Either way,I enjoyed this, so it is my BOTW.

    A gentle wander down the hill from Saltaire to Shipley provided the beer this week.

    Nomadic - Bandit.
    Bosun's - King Neptune.
    Roosters - Leghorn.
    Saltaire - Mayflower.*
    Magpie - Raven.
    Wilde Child - Primitive Satisfaction.
    Brass Castle - Bad Kitty.*
    Abbeydale - Arson.
    Beespoke - Shipley Stout.
    Acorn - Darkness.

    Beer quality was pretty good across all six venues visited. However, the Mayflower just had a little more oomph. Sampled in Groove Pad.

    Only a couple of beers that disapointed but the clear winner is Siren Antidawn, an India Export Porter at 6.5% and a style that seems to push the right buttons, taken at the KBF.

    Some decent cask variety from two nights spent in Oxford, the only real disappointment being the dreary Loose Cannon from Abingdon Brewery.

    Adnams - Ghost Ship **½
    Charlie Wells - Origin *½
    Dark Star - Hophead **½
    Lister's - Limehouse Porter **
    Loose Cannon - Abingdon Bridge
    Purity - Ubu **
    Shotover - Trinity **
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord **
    XT - Hare **

    BOTW goes to Titanic - Plum Porter **** imbibed at The Royal Blenheim and also The Royal Oak.
