    London,sarf. Not a lot of cask

    Shepherd Neame-1698 (bottle) 6%abv
    Harvey's -XX Sussex Dark MILD 3%abv Flavoursome and reassuring.
    Harvey's-Armada 4.5%abv Suave.
    Gipsy Hill-Hepcat 4.6%abv.Keg, but inoffensive.

    My BOTW-Harvey's XX Dark MILD.

    Short list but all worthy of BOTW:

    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Little Brewing Company Taj*
    Byatts Maibock*
    Vale Gravitas*

    BOTW Byatts Maibock. A 5.5%, beautifully balanced, German ale. Another winner from Byatts.

    Out West


    More Neck Oil and little cask for exploring the watering holes of Tooting, but a mini-fest of Oakham's beers at Islington's White Swan made up for something:

    Beerblefish + Werewolf - Maple Tooth Tiger **½
    Oakham - Bite the Bullet **
    Oakham - Citra **½
    Oakham - Mompesson’s Gold *¾
    Oakham - Hawse Buckler *¾
    Thornbridge - Lord Maximus **¾
    Twickenham - Naked Ladies **¾

    Not a brilliant drink, but sometimes the surroundings just add something else, so BOTW goes to Five Points - XPA **¾ at The Pride of Spitalfields last night.

    Fernandes - Mosaic.*
    Fernandes - Luis Fernandes Porter.
    Ossett - Citra.*
    Fernandes - Voodoo Stout.
    Fernandes - Citragen.*
    Runaway - American Brown Ale.
    Squawk - Sylvia.
    Chin Chin - Still the Beats Bang.*

    Another satisfying week, with several pale beers very good indeed. The winner is a big-hitting West coast IPA (5.6%). Taken in Luis Bar @ Fernandes.

    Croydon,Manchester and Warwick.

    Oakham -- Citra *
    Burning Sky -- Aurora * (3PT)
    Drop Project -- Jeez *(keg)
    Marble -- Rocket *
    Gasworks -- Alma IPA *
    Smithfield Social -- Pilsner
    Dark Star -- American Pale Ale
    Church Farm -- Pale
    Salopian -- Oracle
    North Cotswold -- Shagweaver *
    Church Farm -- Harry's Heifer

    BOTW goes to Marble Rocket,their excellent interpretation of a 4.8% best bitter ,perfect with the cheeseboard taken in The Marble Arch.

    Next week boating north through Brum and Tamworth plus end of season footie should produce a respectable list.
