    West Riding Licensed Refreshment Rooms, Dewsbury (the 'West Riding' bit above hyperlinks direct to the PuG page. Didn't make a note of the %. Saltiares site (http://www.saltairebrewery.co.uk/html/cask_ales.html) says 4%. It just really hit the spot and I guess it may well have also just reached that magic part of the barrel mind you I did have two, just to check

    I was looking forward to trying the Sambrooks Pale Ale that I found in the Bree Louise on Tuesday, but unfortuately it was in pretty ropey condition, so I'm not sure I caught it at it's best.

    BOTW therefore goes to Redemption Trinity, perfectly served up in the nearby Euston Tap.

    Virtually the only beer consumed and hence BOTW was Wychwood Scarecrow,a very pleasant seasonal golden pale ale. I managed to sneak this pint in The Students Union Bar during an open day at Southampton University with my youngest son...he wanted to check out the most important facilities there

    Marble - Bitter.
    Idle - Black Abbott.
    Slaters - Golden.
    Salopian - Hop Twister.
    Acorn -Old Moor Porter.
    Ilkley - Lotus IPA.
    Brentwood - Best.
    Ossett - Mellow Yellow.
    Fernandes - Khalie.
    Ossett - Excelsior.
    Fernandes - Malt Shovel Mild.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.
    Cropton - Blackout.
    Brentwood - Lumberjack.
    Bob's - White Lion.
    Five Towns - Ponte Carlo.

    Particularly enjoyed the Noxal, Hop Twister and Great Northern, but the Marble Bitter was on stunning form and I can't see anything else coming close, this week. A flying visit to London, this weekend, might throw up a few more contenders, but as I probably won't have time to tick off any destination pubs, I doubt it.
    As it turned out, I did manage a couple in the Cask Pub & Kitchen:

    Dark Star - Hophead.
    Magic Rock - Dark Arts.
    Arbor Ales - Black Eye PA.

    Very impressed with the Dark Arts, but as I suspected BOTW is Marble Bitter.

    Why do those quotes not entirely surprise me?

    It's still in the bludy GBG!!!! I'm guessing the Euston Tap wasn't open in time for inclusion.

    While we're at it all three JDWs in Liverpool city centre are in, including the Fall Well


    Talk about a lack of credibility, not to mention taste, from certain CAMRA branches.

    Oh nearly forgot, BOTW is the Moor Pacific IPA

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

    No beer last week:by the time we'd finished work on Saturday we were too knackered to go to the Beer Festival up the road. I saw an Oakham Ales dray heading into Kent at the Dartford Crossing this morning. A good sign, but I reckon its the closest I'll get to the barmaid's apron this week!

    Forgot to enter my own BOTW.

    Despite the Leeds crawl I'm going to vote for Castle Rock Midnight Owl tried in the Keans Head in Nottingham.
