    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    Some very good beer this week despite missing out on Norwich.
    Just two different pubs visited this week, The first three beers from the Waggon & Horses and everything else from The Alfred over three seperate visits.

    Oakham The Hare And The Hedgehog
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Ossett Butterley*
    Bowland Bumble*
    Bowland Boxer Blonde
    Dark Reveloutions Hey Girl*
    Brew York York-E*
    Elusive /Burning Sky Day By Day*
    Vocation/Vault City Banana Cookie Dough Cheesecake Stout*
    Beak/Deya Crocco*
    Thornbridge Astryd*
    Brunswick Pick 'N' Mix
    Acorn Blonde
    Vibrant Forest Cambrian Root*
    Vibrant Forest Altitudes* (keg)
    The Kernel Export Stout London 1890* (keg)
    Burnt Mill Little Thaw* (keg)

    Some excellent cask beer on the list, yet the three keg beers at the bottom, all enjoyed this afternoon, were exceptional and hard to split, but if pushed I'll go with The Kernel Export Stout, £5.80 for two thirds but well worth it for a beautifully put together 7.4% beer.

    Won't compare to Norwich lists but not bad:

    Everards Tiger
    Everards Old Original*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Thornbridge Jaipur IPA*
    Loddon Dragonfly
    XT Animal Bush Viper*
    Titanic Plum Porter*
    Titanic White Star*
    XT Animal Katydid
    Kent Tropic Ale
    Don Valley Gongoozler Stout*
    Blue Monkey Infinity +1*

    All starred were worthy of BOTW with the Gongoozler Stout especially good. BOTW Blue Monkey Infinity +1 against stiff competition but it's just ridiculously drinkable.

    Finally made it to the pub, this week. Just the 'Merrie City', as usual.

    Stancill - Murale.
    Chin Chin - Mild Thing.
    Wensleydale - Black Diamond.
    Mallinsons - Amarillo.*
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.
    Ossett - Harlequin.*
    Chin Chin - Wake Up Bomb.*
    Fernandes - Walker Wood.
    Acorn - Gorlovka.*
    Fernandes - Brian.

    A close call this week, between the Amarillo, Gorlovka and Wake Up Bomb. The Chin Chin just snatches it. An easy drinking pale beer made with El Dorado, Mosaic and Azzaco Hops. Taken in Luis Bar @ Fernandes.
