    BOTW for me was Downton's Honey Blonde,a refreshing pale beer served up in The Black Friar ,EC4.

    Next week should be interesting on the ale front ,with trips to Lichfield,Burton,Derby and the Erewash Valley.I'll try and make some coherent notes.

    BOTW is Youngs Ordinary. A fine session beer, especially on a hot day, and even more so when free of charge... (see Voucher Watch thread)

    Afraid my beer of the week is one of 46 new ales we had between us - our rules - over our 3 days at Egham United Services Club.

    Wantsum Turbulent Priest 4.4% just beat Ascot Ales Emperor Penguin Porter 7%.

    Yes, thanks for the heads-up on that one. I particularly enjoyed a free pint at Wimbledon's Alexandra, as they ripped me off for ~£3.60 last time I visited! They said they were out of Bombardier as it had been £2 per pint yesterday.

    A bit to choose from this week having visited The Merchants http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/57333/ beer festival. Over 80 beers and 20+ ciders and perries on over the week. My own sampling included:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell and Farmers Wellies
    Art Brew Blackcurrant Stout
    Gidleys Meadow
    Goose Eye Golden Goose
    Saltaire Blackberry Cascade
    Spectrum Old Stoatwobbler
    Wood Farm Wood Farm Best

    A tough call between the Farmers Wellies, Blackberry Cascade and Wood Farm Best but BOTW was Wood Farm Best, a traditional best bitter which goes down well initially with apparently little character but then smacks you with flavour and bitterness causing it to bounce rapidly out of the glass. Great to see a new and relatively small brewery hitting such heights.

    A very good week for beer as I wasn't working, lots of very good beers but an unexpected winner from Brains was MILKWOOD - a traditional malty bitter, slightly bitter-sweet but very drinkable.

    "To begin at the begining:
    It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black,
    the cobblestreets silent and the hunched, courters' - and rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.
    The houses are blind as moles
    (though moles see fine tonight in the snouting, velvet dingles)
    or blind as Captain Cat there in the muffled middle by the pump and the town clock, the shops in mourning, the Welfare Hall in widows' weeds. And all the people of the lulled and dumbfounded town are sleeping now."

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Oakham JHB hit the spot on a warm Thursday evening (as you'd expect), but I was highly impressed by WJ King's new offering 'Market Porter' - not quite the pint for the climate, I accept, but it's very nearly as good as Fuller's London Porter. I shall be looking forward to another pint of Market Porter once winter comes around.
