    Good start to last week ,several pub visits while navigating some of the lesser used canals of the West Midlands which meant pulling a lot of detritus off the prop by hand,no dead animals this time.

    BOTW goes to Oakham Citra from The Bartons Arms ,Aston which flew down on a warm evening and after encountering a vast number of women of a certain age all heading towards Villa Park for a Take That concert.

    A few to choose from this week including:
    Oakham - Attila, Bishops Farewell, Citra
    Banks Bitter
    Salopian Shropshire Gold
    Exe Valley Sterling Silver
    Burton Bridge Waywiser
    Kelham Island Easy Rider

    All the Oakham ales were top quality and I agree with Mr Fastard that the Citra really hits the spot on a warm evening but BOTW is going to Kelham Island Easy Rider which was as surprising as it was outstanding being served in the beer tent at a local country show.

    The Magic Rock is winning at the moment. A great beer from a brand new brewery.
    I'm going to stick with the Magic Rock High Wire despite Howard Town Dark Peak making a late bid on Saturday.

    Two good beers found in slightly unexpected places:

    Shepherd Neame Spitfire (direct from the barrel in the 'Bread & Roses' real ale bar) at the Hop Farm music festival, and much cheaper than all this fizz that people were queuing for at the other bars...

    Gadds No. 7 (again, direct from the barrel) at the school fete - excellent choice by the organising committee, and this week's winner for me.

    PS - I guess that both were bright beers, but certainly none the worse for that.

    I'm going to give BOTW to Flowerpots Triple B - straight from the barrel in the Flowerpots Inn, Cheriton - a good way to kick off the Winchester crawl.

    It was such a hectic week (36 different pubs, let alone pints) that a choice is as hard as anything I have done on the BotW thread but the Moor Northern Star at the Eagle & Child in Oxford was such a standout pint that it is as worthy as anything!

    The boss at one of my local 'Spoons was open for some guest ale options recently and I mentioned that we never see Gadds or Goachers in Dartford despite them being brewed by Kent breweries. He got on to them and they both said they wouldn't deliver that far. Lazy gits!

    Don't know what Eddie Gadd drives, but Goacher's used to run a Morris !000 van: I doubt it could have got up Wrotham Hill!
