    Just starting out so this BOTW may change, but really enjoyed the Skinners new beer Porthleven today 4.8% and it was in great condition too from the Truro JDW. Impressed. Hope all beers this week as good.

    Good selection this week:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Shugborough Mi Lady's Fancy
    Everards Tiger
    Titanic White Sar
    Enville Ginger Beer
    Jennings Cockerhoop
    Hop Back Summer Lightening
    Bathams Bitter

    All were top quality with the White Star and Summer Lightening really standing out but BOTW was Bathams Bitter at the Great Western in Wolverhampton.

    I'd somehow convinced myself that I didn't like Amarillo hops. A pint of Brodies Amarilla had me seeing the error of my ways - an excellent pint.

    My beer of the week is from Triple F brewery and it was called Altons Pale Ale a nice pale ale and very refreshing this was in the Hollybrook tavern in Derby.

    The best beers from this week were all, coincidentaly, dark ones:
    Ilkley Black Summit, Ascot Anastasia Stout and Buffy's Mucky Duck were all very nice but the stand out beer was Hambleton Nightmare - a very smooth stout with plenty of flavour to it which was flying out of the pumps at the Cricketers this week.

    Had some strange choice of beers this week Including Wm Youngers Scotch Bitter, Wm Youngers Tartan Bitter, McEwans Export Bitter & Tennant's Lager Most of which I did not think were still available until I went up to the Inlaws.

    But the best by far was the Arundel Prize Fighter for my Beer of the week.

    I also had Nightmare in the Cricketers, but I'll go for Darkstar Hophead, a great thirst quencher after a convoluted bus journey to Blythe Hill Tavern.
