    Mine was probably Slater's Top Totty, a superb hoppy golden beer, perhaps more suited to summer than the current cold spell but very good nevertheless..........and it was also in a 'spoons emporium. You do have to use those vouchers though, 50p off coming in at 1.55 a pint. Marvellous.

    Also of note was Castle Rock's Harvest Pale - the bottled version is 4.3%, as opposed to 3.8% on draught. I look forward to a few more from their stable after a brewery tour & 'champions' fest (CanalHouse) next week.
    I had a couple of pints of Bishops Farewell myself last night in The Regal Moon and very good it was too. Voluptuous Vicky still wins this week though.

    Unless I can nip to the pub sometime this evening (unlikely) I think my BOTW is going to be Beartown's 'Bearskinful'. As a confirmed hophead I'm quite surprised to be nominating such a malty beer. However, after a few indifferent ales, it was wonderfully fresh and aromatic by comparison.

    A fairly uneventful week:the only pub visit was to the Flier in Smarden where I had acouple of pints of Sheps Masterbrew-unfashionable but satisfyingly marmaladey. On the bottled front, a welcome return of Westerham's Freedom Ale, with lashings of fairtrade demarara. Nothing dark, I'm afraid.

    A hell of a sight better week than last. Top? Cotleigh Buzzard, always one of my favourites. A new barrel had somewhat less in when I left than when I got there. Odd thing about Buzzard, I never think of it when asked for a list of my favourite beers, yet when it's on I can't get enough of it. Then there was Salopian's Prohibition, I was enjoying that, then they put the Buzzard on..........

    Well I was in danger of having to agree with Conrad on the Badger Golden Champion, but agreeing with him just isn't my style

    Trouble is that I wasn't that fond of the Moonraker, even if it did warm me up nicely for my cold journey home last night.

    So to solve my issues I nipped up my local shop earlier and managed to nab the last two Bath Gems off the shelf, so that gets my nod for the week!
