    A short and not especially well formed list:

    Moongazer Amber Ale
    Adnams Ghost Ship*
    Brancaster Brewdolph
    Brancaster Oystercatcher*
    Moongazer Hiberno*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    BOTW Brancaster Oystercatcher. I always forget quite how good this is until around halfway through the second. Nips at TT Landlord's heels as a quality session ale.

    Good week for me, almost certainly a reaction to having no pub time during the Xmas hols.

    Tarn 51 - Altofts Blonde.
    Tarn 51 - Rocking Robin.*
    Tarn 51 - Jol.*
    Stancill - Not Dark Yet.
    Small World - Twin Falls.
    North Riding - Citra.*
    Half Moon - Dark Masquerade.
    Melwood - Derby Stout.
    Empire - Strikes Back.
    Stancill - Blizzard.
    Stancill - Driving Home.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Bad Seed - On the Juice.*
    Salt - Mockado.
    Rat - Rat Trap.
    Wilde Child - Chimney Blockage.
    Kirkstall - Solitude.
    North Riding - US Session Pale.*
    Fernandes - Kiwi Session.
    Abbeydale - Salvation.*

    The Citra, US Session Pale and Plum Porter were particularly good, but as they've all been nominated before, I'm plumping for the Jol, a 7% impy stout. Sampled at The Robin Hood, Altofts, where the Tarn 51 microbrewery is also based.
