    Two good beers from Westerham this week-Special Bitter Ale 1965 and Progress Single Hop Varietal. Progress isn't the most assertive hop, and it took me a while to fully appreciate the floral quality of this beer.I enjoyed it, but my BOTW is the Special Bitter Ale 1965, based, apparently on the last beer brewed at the old Westerham brewery: an excellent friuty best, with a decent hoppy twang.

    Not a good week for pubbing, in fact I haven't done anything beyond the local 'Spoons and my quiz pub. It pains me to say it but the most drinkable thing I have had this week (that I haven't nominated before as BotW) is the Greene King seasonal offering Bonkers Conkers.

    Well it ended up being a close run thing this week with several pints of Thornbidge Kipling in the Regal Moon almost winning it.

    I'm going to go for Wychwood Bountiful though, several pints of which were consumed in The Baum. A full bodied, complex red brown beer with a rather impressive.............pump clip.

    A really good week beerwise in Oxfordshire. BOTW was, by a narrow margin, Brakspears Oxford Gold in the King and Queen ay Longcot, just pipping the Hobgoblin in The Fox and Hounds at Uffington. Now looking forward to a few more pints in the area.

    Only one genuine contender this week, although that's not to say that it wouldn't have prevailed in a stronger week - Kelham Island 45rpm as tried in the George, Croydon.

    I don't generally get on with Wychwood beers but was offered a sample of Bountiful at Green Dragon & liked it. Had a pint, then (2 pints later) moved on to Kipling elsewhere. Bizarre, well I think so.

    From my review of The Anchor, Henley on Thames last year.


    The beer is good here, Brakspears Bitter and Oxford Gold...a much better pint than I'd had earlier in the day elsewhere, plus Wychwood Bountiful. I asked about the Wychwood as I'm unsure about some of their beers and I was given a taster....it was actually pretty good.

    Sadly only thing I had this week on the one day I could drink was a few Pints of Caledonian Deuchars IPA 3.8% And a few Pints of St Austell Proper Job 4.5% ABV.
    The St Austell Proper Job won by a Mile too be my beer of the week..

    P/s Again this week Ive got too wait till Friday as I'm on Late Duty's till Thursday night then I'm off for long weekend when I will make up for lost time.

    For me it was the Great Orme Brewery Celtic Dragon, enjoyed at the Cottage Loaf in Llandudno.
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.

    Plenty of booze consumed last week, but little of particular interest, sadly, with 19 pints sunk over a 4-day period.

    San Miguel x 4
    Guinness x 7
    Young’s London Gold x 1
    Brains SA Gold x 1
    Hogs Back TEA x 1
    Butcombe Brewery Bitter x 1
    Sharps Doom Bar x 4
    Gordon's Gin & Tonic Water [double measure] x 2
    Shot of Tequila x 1

    BOTW: Sharp's Doom Bar
