    Hertford,Croydon and Clapham.

    Heineken -- Birra Moretti (keg)
    Pressure Drop -- Premium Lager Beer (keg)
    Mighty Oak -- Winter Wonderland
    Oakham -- JHB *
    Fullers -- Dark Star Hophead
    Marston's -- 61 Deep *
    Cronx -- Entire Porter (keg)
    Oakham -- Green Devil IPA *
    Oakham -- Yonder
    Surrey Hills -- Shere Drop *

    A rather mixed bag but BOTW goes to Oakham Green Devil IPA ,an old favourite and on great form in The George.

    Next week looks decidedly thin.

    Another decent week for me.

    Ossett - Silver King.
    Ossett - Voodoo.*
    Roosters - London Thunder.*
    Chin Chin - Giddy Stratosphere.
    Roosters - Thousand Yard Stare.*
    Mallinsons - Opus.
    Ossett / St. Mars of the Desert - Amere Biere.
    Tigertops - Marzen Bier.
    Horbury - White Hawk.*
    Rat - Ratella.
    Fernandes - John Peel.
    Five Towns - It's No Game.

    The Thousand Yard Stare (5.4%) and White Hawk (4.3%) were my favourite pair, this week. Not much between them, so, as usual, I'll give the honours to the weaker beer. Sampled in Luis Bar @ Fernandes.

    Quality again:

    Mad Squirrel Extra Squirrely Bitter*
    Arbor Magic Mountain IPA*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Barshams Golden Close IPA*

    Not a bad one amongst them and it's a close call between the ESB and Magic Mountain IPA. The Mad Squirrel Extra Squirrely Bitter just shades BOTW. A well executed, smooth and moorish 5% ESB.

    Abbeydale Black Mass, at Wellingborough's excellent Little Ale House
    Surprised to now notice it listed as a black IPA, I thought it looked and tasted like a stout, liked it anyway and a very splendid little visit to this friendly micro.
