    A very sociable week, this week, involving a major crawl round Wakefield with 'trainman' on Friday and a gentler version, on Sunday, with 'oldboots'. Some good beers tasted, but several shockers on the quality front. Contenders:

    Ossett - Silver King.
    Maypole - BXA.
    Northern - Two Tone.
    Bobs - White Lion.
    Fernandes - Jackdaw MILD.
    Potbelly - Captain Pigwash.
    Great Heck - Chamberlain.
    Fernandes - Brock Bitter.
    Blue Monkey - BG Sips.
    Goose Eye - Chinook.
    Fyne - Piper's Gold.
    Salamander - Wild Joker.
    Moorhouse - APA Special.
    Jennings - Cocker Hoop.
    Timothy Taylor - Landlord.
    Clarks - Westgate Gold.
    Black Country - BFG.
    Clarks - Amber Leaf.
    Two Roses - Chinook.
    Banks & Taylor - Edwin Taylor Stout.
    Great Heck - Famous Five.
    Fernandes - Top Notch.
    Fernandes - Great Northern.
    Partners - Agatha.

    The 'Two Tone' nearly had it for the second week running, but the 'Famous Five' was a prickly, grapefruity, hoppy delight and just shaded it.

    Mikkeller Mild Interpretation at Craft Beer Co. though the Honey Porter at the Jerusalem Tavern ran it close.

    Mmm, yes that was also pretty damn good. Some of the Old Ales at the Sloany Pony weren't bad either and a cracking Castle Rock at the Nags yesterday too. Been a good week but I refuse to list all the stuff I drink lest I become a Scooper by default.

    Almost a Dry week Only a few Bottles of Newcastle Brown & a couple of Pints of Broadoak Premium Perry 7.5%
    So my Beer of the week is The Broadoak Premium Perry which Won by a Mile.

    My head didn't think it was that gentle this morning, still going in the Brewery Tap and the Duck & Drake after Wakefield probably didn't help

    Anyhoo my BOTW is Ridgeside Stargazer

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

    Does this count? Is someone called Alesonly allowed to name a PERRY as BOTW?

    Well it wasn't the greatest weeks for beer, especially with Greenmill changing the Old Gits recipe so that it didn't taste the same or as good.

    Shame really as there's two 9's of it in the cellar.

    Brightside Darkside was good in the Flying Horse - Rochdale where they were having a "Meet The Brewer" evening with Brightside on Friday.

    Allgates Apollo was a surprise as I don't normally like Allgates beer very much, but this was excellent.

    Springhead A Drop O The Black Stuff was also very good.

    BOTW is going to be Allgates Apollo though, tried twice over the weekend in the Regal Moon - Rochdale.

    Have to agree with you there. One of those strangely underwhelming outfits. Still, not as bad as Brentwood....

    Thanks again for the route list and the tour guide service; in a very disorganised trainman mission, we couldn't have done it without you sir.

    I shall name Northern Two-Tone as my botw; not my usual style, but packed with flavour. And served by my landlady of the week - at a later opening pub she was preparing the place and said "we don't open for 10 minutes, but you can come in & have a pint while you wait" - quality!

    Lisa at the Bull & Fairhouse, take a bow.

    Good to see you 'tm'. Very impressed you managed a pint of Winter Warmer on your return.
