    Iron Pier-Rakau and Archer joined at the Hop. 3.8%abv: hazy pale. Great depth of flavour.Stone fruit, citrus. My BOTW. I've also enjoyed cans of Killick's Mill from this brewery.

    A small but well formed list:

    Everards Thunderbolt*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Abbeydale Moonshine*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    All excellent and well kept but I really enjoyed BOTW Hop Back Summer Lightening which, as per, whistled through the 3 pint test.

    Just a handful of pre-curry swifties, this week.

    North Riding - Maple & Walnut Stout.*
    Mallinsons - Citranaut.
    Dorking - 5 Claw.*
    Handsome - Stranger.
    Harrogate - Cheers to 10 years.

    Easy winner was the 5 Claw, a tasty West Coast IPA. Taken in Harry's Bar.

    Better late than never,....Crete,better known for it's wine but the following lagers were all sampled.

    Xapua -- Charma
    Mythos -- in bottles ,cans but much better when on keg.

    However BOTW goes to a bottle of Septem 8th Day ,a fine 7.4% IPA floral and fruity served in BEERaki ,Mavrikiano.

    Next week end month sessions in Hertford and Carshalton,once back from Crete.
