    A very quiet week with just option but a very worthy one. BOTW is Oakham Bishops Farewell.

    Beer of the week however is going to be Taton - Taton Ale as sampled on an all to brief visit to the Bhutphore Inn , the sort of pub that deserves at least a couple of hours with 11 ales on

    A few this week.

    Warrington Wetherspoons, well there is now 2 of them, the one nearest the station was doing a nice Jabberwocky, a refreshing and clean beer. A bit too malty for me though. I popped along to the other one, whose name I can rememeber, the Friar Penketh. There I had a Thwaites Wainwright, which was light, hoppy, fresh and refreshing as usual. I then nipped to the Barlow Mow which provided an utterly dreadful Worthingtons. Later in Port St Beer House I had three excellent brews. One a nice but bot boring pale, Best Bitter from Cains. I then moved on to interesting beers. A Jaipur on keg was attempted but surprisingly wasn't that good. Better on cask. However, the Hardcore IPA was utterly amazing. Full of flavour, and so hoppy. You'd never get a beer like this on cask. Later in North Bar Leeds I had a 4% beer whose name I can't remember, but it was boring too.

    As a result, the most memorable beer of the weekend and tastiest was the Hardcore IPA by Brewdog. They really do some good beers in all sorts of containers.

    I hadn't seen this anywhere until about 8 months ago when it appeared in Veritas, Leeds. Now I see it everywhere. I even had a pint of it out of a plastic container in Manchester the morning of the FA Cup Final and it tasted good despite the plastic. They must be pushing it. Previously I'd see "Thwaites" and think Boring Brown Beer.

    Beer of the Week is going to be Palace Ale - a new beer brewed by celebrity Crystal Palace fan and real ale advocate Neil Morrissey, as part of a drive to introduce a real ale policy at Selhurst Park. I tried a pint at the Cricketers and thought it was a very good, hoppy session beer with a real bite to it.

    There was stiff competition this week in the shape of Bateman's Salem Porter, Dorking Single Hop Gold and the outstanding Palmer's Tally Ho.

    Quite a low volume of ale this week.

    Mallinsons Huddersfield Pale Ale & Cottage Stanier 5 were very good in The Baum.

    But the winner by a street length is Milestone Colonial Stout tried in the Regal Moon, 6%, black and very smooth. So good I had to have 2 despite the ABV.

    A spontaneous meet up with 'oldboots' yesterday afternoon, for the 'Farewell to Tetleys' event at The Midnight Bell, Leeds, was a bit of a damp squib, but we enjoyed a fantastic mini crawl around the Holbeck area. I added a couple on the way home and notched up a twenty four beer session! A personal best. It's fair to say I was a bit fuzzy round the edges this morning. Tried:

    Titanic - Centenary.
    Vale - Black Beauty Porter.
    Leeds - Quality Pays.
    Tetley - MILD.
    Ansells - MILD.
    Leeds - Yorkshire Gold.
    Tetley - Midsummer Madness.
    Liverpool Organic - Old Porter.
    Roosters - Leghorn.
    Slaters - Top Totty.
    Goose Eye - Bitter.
    Salamander - Annual MILD.
    Salamander - After Dark.
    Salamander - Golden Salamander.
    Moorhouses - Black Panther.
    Ilkley - Mary Jane.
    Junction - Trainspotter.
    Ilkley - Black Summit IPA.
    Acorn - Darkness.
    Five Towns - Crisis What Crisis.
    Ossett - Millbridge MILD.
    Milestone - Sup-Porter.
    Fernandes - Centennial.
    Fernandes -Ale to the Tsar.

    There are half a dozen in there that could win on a quiet week, but the two that stood out yesterday were the Liverpool Organic Porter and the Roosters. very close, but the Roosters 'Leghorn just shades it.

    A beer disaster week for me. Just 1 pint in 1 pub was all I could muster and that was just to avoid the rain at lunchtime. It wasn't even an enjoyable beer - White Horse Saracens IPA. I had solitary tin of Tuborg yesterday at a music festival but my salvation for the BotW thread comes by way of a couple of bottles that I picked up in Sainsburys, St Austell Tribute and Holts Humdinger, the latter being an extremely worthy winner and my first ever bottled BotW. Hopefully this week should throw up a few more opportunities.
