    A bit of a session in The Baum on Tuesday where Highland Scapa Special was new on the bar.

    This was excellent and I ended up having 4 pints of it, unusual for me with 6 others to choose, although I had tried them all before.

    A trip to Hull this weekend should throw up lots more choices, but this one going to be hard to beat.

    Had some good ale on the trip from Lincoln to Leeds,so this is a tricky call.The Kirkstall Black Band was very good,but BOTW goes to Great Heck's Voodoo Mild.At 4.3% it had a lot more going on than some weaker milds,a rich chocolate/coffee initial hit and then a lingering dryness tempting you into another.Any MILD pump clip with an image of Jimi Hendrix is worth a pint,surely ? Supped along with some other fine beers in The Eight Jolly Brewers,Gainsborough.

    Brewdog - Punk IPA, had in Brewdog Manchester.

    I kept telling myself I needed to see a few different pubs in Manchester to learn the area, I kept going back to this. Lovely smell and even better taste. Several of Marble's came close.

    Saltaire Stateside IPA
    Loddon Summer Snowflake
    Rat Desert Rat
    Saltaire Blonde
    Taylors Landlord
    Nethergate for Nicholsons Three Mills PA
    Ilkley Mary Jane
    Salamander Slam Dunk

    A few decent beers this week.
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Titanic Rule Britannia
    Ossett Citra
    Rudgate Battle Axe
    Wentworth WPA
    Great Heck Voodoo Mild
    Old Mill Bitter
    Daleside Blonde
    Ridgeside Southern Cross

    All of these were good and slipped down very easily. BOTW was Ridgeside Southern Cross, a brewery new to me but recommended by the Grove in Leeds. Southern Cross is a 5.7% IPA brewed with NZ hops. It's dry, bitter, complex and immensely drinkable. My Beer of the Year so far by a stretch.

    A good week for me with the Braintree Fest and a trip around Chelmsford.

    Colchester Red Diesel
    Crouch Vale Blackwater Mild
    Crouch Vale Essex Boys
    Old Dairy Copper Top
    Wibblers Apprentice
    Howard Town Bleaklow
    Bank Top Old Slapper
    Farmers Ales Captain Ann

    The above were thoroughly enjoyed plus many more, but the winner this week is Wibblers Apprentice, an excellent session beer that I could happily drink gallons of!

    Quiet this week. Simple pick between Wye Valley Dorothy Goodbody's Golden Ale at The Barrels and Waen Summer ale at Kilverts Hotel (yes, I did meet Ed )

    I'll go for the Waen Summer Ale. I've had a couple of theirs at the Nags and been impressed.
