    This week we have had a crawl round 5 pubs in Sheffield, attended Worcester beer festival and a couple of Birmingham pubs.

    Plenty of variety, lots of breweries new to us. Magic Rock Curious in the Sheffield Tap and Owenshaw Golden Bridge in the Gardeners Rest, and at Worcester enjoyed St Georges Charger, Rudgate Mount Hood and Cairngorm Brochan. Birmingham pubs I think had the winner with Kirkstall Pale Ale.

    Yes, BOTW going to Kirkstall Pale Ale.

    Easy one this week (there being rather limited competition) - the local Arundel Trident at the otherwise rather dull The Hatter's Inn (JD Wetherspoon) in Bognor Regis...

    An easy choice for me again; Oakham Citra

    other beers drunk this weekend were:
    Black Sheep bitter,
    Landlord,
    Rudgate Mount Hood,
    Daleside Old Leg Over,
    Holdens Mild,
    Ridgehouse Moorland Bitter
    and the mighty Jaipur.

    Sadly of this lot only the Mild and the Black Sheep were in good condition the rest were past their best.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    After a tricky week good to get back in the groove in The George,Croydon which was spared by the looters and supplied my BOTW in Dark Star Seville,with a taste of bitter Spanish oranges.Maybe not a session ale but very interesting ,and washed down next with a pint of Hophead before sloping off to Selhurst for a welcome three points.

    A trip to West Sussex gave me a chance to drink something other than Doom Bar and Otter, although Otter was on in one of the pubs.

    Top 3 were:

    Surrey Hills Ranmore
    Dark Star Hylder Blonde
    Arundel Sussex Gold

    But my BOTW goes to Arundel Sussex Gold a good hoppy and full bodied Golden bitter.
