    A splendid pub crawl of York on Friday provided a number of contenders but my winner by a long way is York Citra. I was also impressed by Titanic Centenary and a new one on me Nutbrook from Derbyshire.

    Much less impressive were Jennings Twizzie Lizzie (thin), Brewdog Punk IPA "craft keg" version (cloudy fizzy shite) and even Thornbridge Alchemy which is probably my BABOTW; it could have so easily been the Brewdog keg but it's close.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Newt Beer Festival:

    May BOTW is Moor's Grockle Grog, an 8% dark old ale / stout which was superbly balanced if a little on the sweet side

    Another pretty quiet week for me. No beer at all until I managed to sneak a few in at the Newmillerdam Beer Festival on Saturday:

    Foxfield - Dark MILD.
    Acorn - Summit IPA.
    Townhouse - A'dley Weisse.
    Brown Cow - Harvey's Tipple.
    Great Heck - Allan.
    Empire - Expedition.
    Five Towns - Summerale.

    Apart from the mild being disappointing, all the others were pretty decent, but the Acorn just shades it for BOTW.

    I was pretty impressed with Ascot Posh Pooch & Burnside Wild Rhino at Derby BF.

    Titanic Golden Age was good in the Greyhound in Derby.

    Mr Grundys Passchendale & Over The Top at Mr Grundys in Derby were both very good.

    Hop Monster from Ossett did exactly what it said on the tin in the Babington Arms in Derby.

    Abbeydale Original Sin was a dark surprise in the Exeter Arms in Derby.

    But I think after all that the BOTW is going to be Saddleworth Shaftbender. A 5.4% dark delight tried in The Baum.

    They've had some bad press at Saddleworth from the local CAMRA bods who say their beer is crap despite most of them not having tried any.

    In my opinion Shaftbender just shows what a bunch of they can be sometimes.

    Travelling on the Central Line on Saturday I decided to jump off at Chancery Lane to have a look at the new Craft Beer Co bar - ended up having a bit of a session in there, such was the tempting line up. Highlights included Fyne Ales Avalanche, Ilkley Stout Mary and Locus IPA and my BOTW Bristol Beer Factory Southville Hop.

    Enjoyed a trip to West Sussex at the weekend, though not with the PUGERS, alas.
    Ballard's Best Bitter
    Fox Goes Free Best Bitter (Arundel Brewery)
    Otter Amber
    Ballard's Best (again)
    Ballard's Golden Bine

    My BOTW is Otter Amber, which I found unusual, seaweedy and interesting: I'm still thinking about it now,33 hours after the event. It pipped the Fox Goes Free Best bitter, which is more conventionally my kind of regular bitter.Brown, not boring.
