    Pleased to have enjoyed some old style low ABV bitters early in the week ,but BOTW goes to an old favourite Hopback Summer Lightening in the curious surrounds of the Black Boy,named after the coal heavers who once worked closeby at the now disused Itchen Navigation wharf.

    Next week ,once the heatwave is over a gentle drift up to Oundle.

The railway station is a bit more than a mile away, and trains are few and far between, so missing one can be calamitous.
    Staying in Eskdale again just two weeks after my previous trip, I decided to go to the Manor Arms again, this time on my bike (an interesting route over Birker Fell) with the train back making the return journey manageable. I planned to have a couple of pints, initially two halves followed by two more, but two of the beers were so good I just had to have the same two again: Ulverston Laughing Gravy 4% and Allendale Pennine Pale 4%. I made these both NBSS 5, because once again I was rendered speechless and in awe of the quality of the beer, and this time I really did change my plans and have another. (The other two beers were Townhouse Charter 3.5% and Salamander Golden 4.5%, neither of which was to my taste but I gave them NBSS 4.)

    Of course, when I got to the station my train had been cancelled...

    Other beers in a very good week included Lancaster Red 4.8% (NBSS 4) at the Sun Hotel in Lancaster and Neepsend Boreas IPA 6.7% (NBSS 3.5) at the Wellington in Sheffield. The latter is normally available on keg in the pubs associated with Neepsend brewery, but on this occasion they had put the live beer into a cask (what a novel idea) and it was gorgeous. I took my time over it - about 75 minutes for a pint! - and it was really enjoyable.

    By not bad I mean decent to good, to be fair nothing blew me away though. Half the thing of the trips is discovering new pubs, none for me this time but of course top notch beer is always ideal.
