    A modest week ,with the highlight Bath's Barnstormer a most drinkable dark beer from a brewery rarely seen in my neck of the woods.A worthy BOTW from The Moletrap in Theydon Mount.

    I did pop into a Lloyds no. 1 to escape the drizzle and while away half an hour before a parent/teacher meeting.Not wanting smell of drink (unlike the pupils ) I opted for a half of diet coke (£1.65 ) before noticing an array of handpumps with guests including Oakham's Bishops Farewell and Tera,and Exmoor Beast and Gold with not a single "available soon" clip anywhere

    Bit of a mixed bag this week, but my top five were the ever reliable Fernandes 'Malt Shovel MILD', Dr Morton's 'Cat-A-Tonic', Blakemere 'Summit Special', Crown 'Samuel Berry's', Acorn 'Old Moor Porter'. Pretty close, but the Summit Special shades it.

    A good Sunday lunchtime session at the Surrey Oaks, Newdigate:
    Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale
    Salopian Beatnick
    Loddon Penny Pond Porter-a lovely pitch black luscious beer, initially roasty, with hints of pine apple and that sourness that seems to be a hallmark of great porters.My BOTW, and in the running for BOTY.

    Almost forgot this weeks BotW. Would have been Old Dairy Gold Top but I've done that one before so I will opt for the excellent St Austell Dartmoor at the Old Mill in Plumstead and at £3.50, just as well it was good.
