    An early reply this week due to a quiet week and lack of ale opportunites pre Sunday. Only one to choose from but an excellent one, BOTW is Oakham Bishops Farewell.

    Out in Leeds last night with friends who had their end of term heads on. A gentle stroll between Veritas, The Victoria and Mr.Foley's saw us try some excellent beers:

    Magic Rock - Rapture.
    Thornbridge -Evenlode.
    Thornbridge - Alchemy XIII.
    Burley Street Brewhouse - IPA.
    Dark Star - Espresso.
    Burley Street Brewhouse - Stout.
    Camden Town - Innercity Green.
    Vale - Black Beauty.
    Thornbridge - Jaipur.
    Rudgate - Ruby Mild.
    Hopdaemon - Incubus.
    Nethergate - Umbel Magna.
    Hawkshead - Cumbrian Five Hop.
    Dr Morton's - Hair Extinguisher.
    Roosters - Wild Mule.
    York - Citra.
    Hardknott - Cool Fusion.
    WharfeBank - Old Stumper.

    The current leaders are probably Rapture and the Innercity Green - a lovely beer for its strength.

    BOTW is Festiv'Ale from the Ramsgate Brewery, sampled at the Craft Beer Co. after work yesterday. Similar in style to the better-known Dark Star Hophead tasted a short while later at Seven Stars - both fine summer pints, but overall the Gadds gets the vote.

    Haven't joined in on this for a while but this week it's going to be White Horse Giant's Stairs, a good hoppy refreshing beer.

    A tight run thing between Larkin's Traditional,an excellant brown traditional bitter, and Whitstable's Faversham Creek, which despite the off putting name, is a pale nettley summery beer, with an undertow of plums.
