    Not a bad week all in all.

    Elgoods Cambridge Gold
    Rebellion Overthrow
    Beavertown Neck Oil
    Vale Best Vale IPA
    Siren Broken Dream*
    Brass Castle Fat Rascal*
    Lovibonds 69 IPA*
    Anspach & Hobday Pfeffernusse Stout*
    Hop Kettle Neonate
    Hop Kettle Cosmic Shake*
    Mallisons Rakau*
    Animal Ermine*
    Stockport Chinook
    Twisted Oak Ghost Town*

    Pretty much all good stuff but most excellent was the Brass Castle Fat Rascal a sublime Cherry and Almond golden mild taken in the very impressive A Hoppy Place.

    down 'ere, from oop there


    Excellent weekend around West Yorkshire, unfortunately didn't note all the beers but great choice and quality at all venues.
    Wakefield, Fernandes Tap (now unfortunately named Luis@Fernandes) and Black Rock
    Ossett, Ossett Tap
    Dewsbury, WRLRR (obvs)
    Huddersfield, just Sportsman & Kings Head (due to time and weather)
    Halifax, Three Pigeons
    Leeds, arrived later than expected so just stayed in Duck & Drake
    Sunday: Sheffield: Hallamshire House, Closed Shop, KIT, Shakespeares, Sheffield Tap.

    I'll plump for my first as it was splendid and in immaculate condition a great start to the day at Fernandes Bar - Fernandes Quantum

    Limited week but all quality:

    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Duration Turn a New Leaf (keg)*

    BOTW Duration Turn a New Leaf. A dry, 4.7%, oyster stout brewed using Brancaster oysters by a local brewery. Thoroughly enjoyed it but may have missed the finer points as it was after a couple? of Ghost Ships.

    West Yorkshire


    A good week for me, with the highlight being the meet-up with 'trainman' et al on Saturday, for a quick whizz round some of West Yorkshire's finest.

    Ilkley - Pale.
    Stancill - Jarrylo.*
    Mallinsons - Huell Moon.*
    Stancill - Black.
    Roosters - Buckeye.
    Ainsty - Assassin.
    Fernandes - Mosaic.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild. *
    Rat - King Rat.
    Fernandes - Quantum.*
    Rat - White Rat.
    Ossett - Mosaic.*
    Ossett - Silver King.
    Vocation - Naughty & Nice: Coconut Milk Chocolate Stout.

    A good list, this week, but the Quantum, on a fresh palate, was on superb form. Clean and hoppy with a fantastic bitterness at the end. Everyone who tried it loved it. Taken at Luis Bar @ Fernandes
