    A fair amount of dark beers this past week all very good but BOTW goes to an English IPA at 6.4% loaded with fruity Orange & Apricot flavours along with some subtle spice,
    Utopian Heritage IPA, taken of course in The Borough Beer House.

    Kent: old school, two solid quaffing beers.

    Goacher's Special House Ale. 3.8%abv. Slightly on the fruity spectrum.
    Larkins' Traditional. 3.4%. As good and toffeish as ever. Appropriately I'd just been talking with a lady who'd been planting hops for Larkins'.My BOTW.

    Low on variety but some good quality old faves:

    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Barsham Golden Close IPA*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    All worthy BOTWs but Hop Back Summer Lightening takes it. Still excellent after all these years and, when kept well, ridiculously drinkable.

    Another quiet week.

    Ossett - White Rat.
    Sunbeam - Dance Before The Storm.
    Morton Collins - Roxy.
    Leeds - Pale.
    St Austell - Tribute.

    A pretty under-powered bunch, for various reasons. The Roxy was easily the winner. Taken in The Star.
