    Quieter week:

    Brunswick Station Approach
    Everards Thunderbolt*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Purity Lawless (keg)

    BOTW Everards Thunderbolt. Accurately described as a strong, hoppy, golden ale. At 5.4% it had more than a hint of the IPA about it and slid through the 3 pint test with ease. I'm enjoying some of Everards limited edition beers.

    Kent:al fresco.

    Cellar Head-India Pale Ale. 5%abv. In a plastic glass, but a juicy,arboreal nectar on a sweltering day.

    A crawl around Jericho, Oxford plus some local supping:

    Arkell's Tradition (3.4%)
    Greene King Level Head IPA (keg) (4.0%)
    Titanic Iceberg (4.1%)
    Portobello Polari (4.2%)
    St Austell Tribute (4.2%)
    XT 3 (4.2%)
    Beavertown Neck Oil (4.3%) (keg)
    Loddon 20 (4.5%)
    Animal Chameleon (4.6%)
    Animal Fruit Bat (4.6%)
    Animal Warbler (4.6%)
    Five Points Railway Porter (4.8%)
    Pheasantry Dancing Dragonfly (5.0%)

    Some variable quality on the Oxford crawl, albeit more good than bad, with two standouts: Titanic's superb Iceberg in tremendous shape at the Old Bookbinders and this week's BOTW: slightly out of season for me, but what the hell – even better than the Iceberg and taken at the Jericho Tavern:

    BOTW: Five Points: Railway Porter

    I just had a half and that set me back £3,so agree with your sentiment.
