    This week saw a visit to snowy North Wales :-

    Banks's Mild 3.5%
    Purple Moose Snowdonia Ale 3.6%
    Purple Moose Madog's Ale 3.7%
    Pueple Moose Elderflower Ale 4.0%
    Purple Moose Calon Lan 4.0%
    Skinners Lushingtons 4.2%
    Hook Norton Big Shed Kol Schisel 4.2%
    Purple Moose Chocolate Moose (keg) 4.5%
    Wadworth Bagby Asphalt Jungle 4.5%
    Salopian Lemon Dream 4.5%
    Purple Moose Dark Side Of The Moose 4.6%
    Banks's Boxing Cat Contender EPA 4.9%
    Millstone True Grit 5.0%
    Kinver Half Centurion 5.0%
    Holden's Special 5.1%
    Purple Moose Antlered IPA (keg) 5.2%
    Titanic Atlantic Red 5.4%
    Molson Coors Worthington White Shield 5.5%

    The winner is the Kinver Half Centurion as tried for £3.60 in the Wolverhampton Great Western on the way back where there's been a 10p a pint price hike since I was last in. On the face of it this is a typical Black Country Pale but definitely has more of a hop zing behind it.

    Church Farm IPA*
    North Yorkshire IPA

    Purity Mad Goose
    TT Landlord*
    Slaters Nelson

    A poor week for me.

    Nailmaker - Paleton.
    Nailmaker - Anvil.
    Jolly Boys - Jolly YPA.
    Nightjar - School Night.
    Hawkshead - Lakeland Gold.

    Five pints of dreary suds, not a flicker of excitement from any of them. One of those weeks where you could sympathise with a casual real ale drinker, who wonders what all the fuss is about. The Lakeland Gold was probably the least worst.

    My week in beer:

    Saucery - Magic Rock
    Sir Keith - Keith Brewery
    DayTime IPA - Lagunitas
    Silhouette - Flagship
    Dead Man's Fist - Chapter Brewing
    Hop Twister - Salopian (taster)
    Ostara - Neptune
    Blueberry Hill Porter - Big Bog
    Will O The Wisp - Big Bog
    Fab Four - Rock The Boat
    Shakedown Street - Melwood Beer Company
    Fault Line - Salopian (taster)
    Ernie's Milk Stout - Settle Brewery
    Créme Bearlee - Beartown

    Most of these were pretty decent and the Beer of the Week would have to be a toss-up between the Flagship Silhouette (at Ship & Mitre) and Settle Ernie's Milk Stout (at Roscoe Head) both 4.5% stouts.

    For completeness I did throw a couple of ciders into the mix and while interesting they didn't top the beers for me this week.

    Cherry Bakewell - Barbourne Cider Co
    Bonobo Banana - Cockeyed Cider

    Oscillating between Surrey and York


    I don't post on these very often, but had to mention the superb North Riding Rum & Raisin Mild.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement
