    A close one between Hook Norton Copper (a copper coloured ale with plenty of big old school flavours) and Binghams Hop Harvest, their first foray into a light zesty ale, both at The Nags Head

    Hook Norton shades it.

    A great day out yesterday in Bakewell and Matlock Bath with the good wife,we tried several good beers some more than once.

    Ashover - Hydro
    Ashover - Golden Valley Ale
    Peak Ales - Bakewell Best
    Peak Ales - Chatsworth Gold
    Peak Ales - Swift Nick
    Bradfield - Farmers Blonde
    Brunswick - White Feather
    Banks's - Banks's bitter
    Marstons - Pedigree

    All the local beers were very drinkable and my beer of the week goes to Peak Ales Bakewell best this was a very nice amber coloured bitter that was quite bitter and very drinkable, this was tired in the Peacock in Bakewell.

    A pretty average week on the beer front. Either not very exciting, or not in particularly good nick. Tried this week:

    Ossett - Green Hop.
    Ossett - Blonde.
    Fernandes - Ale To The Tsar.
    Fernandes - Wakefield Wheat Beer.
    Fernandes - Crusade.
    Vale - Black Swan.
    Rat - Black Rat.
    Brentwood - Pacific Pale Ale.

    ATTT just shades it from the Black Rat. Once again, another totally underwhelming beer from Brentwood.

    I only have one brewery that I would describe as truly local, Millis - a tiny brewery that in my exprience doesn't penetrate very far outside North West Kent. Their beers are very hit and miss but my local has had the Dartford Wobbler on for the past few weeks and a fine pint it is. Although not that striong (4.3%) it seems to do what it says on the tin and I always feel wasted the next moring (although a few extra pints to celebrate our North London derby win may have contributed to this mornings effect). Good stuff.

    Revisited some favourite real ale pubs last week,The Old Cross Tavern in Hertford supplied a well kept Dark Star American Pale Ale among others,while the Harp was full on Friday evening and had a good selection as always from which my BOTW was Red Squirrel London Porter. It was a hot evening and folk were quaffing the golden ales with gusto,but I found the London Porter equally thirst quenching,although it was washed down afterwards by a few Dark Star Hopheads.

    It's a three-way fight this week between the only interesting beers I managed to find - Thornbridge Sequioa, Oakham Bishop's Farewell and Harvey's Armada Ale.

    The Armada Ale in particular was excellent at the Victoria Hotel in Eastbourne, but I'm going to 'do a Thuck Phat' and nominate Oakham Bishop's Farewell as my BOTW. The perfect pint for this unseasonable weather.

    In spite of a flying visit to the Cask & Kitchen plus some other decent pubs in that Lunnun I found my BOTW in sunny Knaresborough at Blind Jack's who usually have at least one from Marble plus the house beer brewed by them, I haven't had this one before and it was damn good - Marble No5.

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