    Very quiet week with just the choice of 2:
    Oakham Bishops Farewell
    Salopian Furkin Freezin

    Salopian are a fine brewery and Furkin Freezin a fine beer but BOTW goes to the incomparable Oakham Bishops Farewell.

    The Shepherd Neame Christmas Ale (5% cask version) seems to be particularly good this year.

    Oakham – Inferno
    Brentwood - Ho Ho Soho
    Rudgate – Auld St. Nick
    Oakham – JHB
    Inveralmond – Lia Fail
    Black Sheep - Golden Sheep
    Artbrew – Hip Hop Green Bullet
    White Horse – Wayland Smithy
    Oakham– Scarlet Macaw

    Inveralmond steals my favour from the Oakhams this wek, with a perfectly balanced 4.7% brew, drunk in the Old Bell in Fleet St.

    Oakham again for me too, this time it's Scarlett Macaw, a bit different to their usual style but still an excellent beer.

    Only out once this week since we got back from our brilliant trip to Ypres.

    BOTW goes to Stonehenge Eye Opener.

    Next week will be great as we are off to York for 3 nights from Saturday.

    Not too many beers passed my lips ,and it appeared a very tasty Slater's Western American Pale Ale in the Sunrunner ,Hitchin would take the award until arriving at Euston station early for a train led to the inevitable trip into the Euston Tap for an excellent Redemption Big Chief ,a very worthy BOTW.

    Boating back through Camden might result in a trip to BrewDog in the coming week,although passing close to The Wenlock could warrant a farewell drink.A bit of a dilemma there.

    This week's entire beer consumption was in the pleasurable company of Pubsignman, yesterday afternoon. Yet another Sunday crawl around Wakefield's finest. Tried this week:

    Clarks - Barrel of Laughs.
    Ossett - Brigantes Bitter.
    Cottage - Golden Arrow.
    Saltaire - Winter Ale.
    Brew Co - Enigma Stout.
    Itchen Valley - Fagins.
    Riverhead - Easy River Pale.
    Titanic - Iceberg.
    North Cotswold - Winter Solstice.
    Bateman's - Rosy Nosey.
    Empire - Moonraker Mild.
    Fernandes - Challenger.
    WharfeBank - WassAle.
    Fox Beer Co. IPA.
    Wentworth - South Yorkshire Pale.
    Acorn - Old Moor Porter.

    With honorable mentions for the Moonraker and the IPA, it finally came down to a choice between the Old Moor Porter and the Easy River Pale, with the latter just shading it. (P.S. With hindsight PSM, I think you were right, the Winter Solstice was definitely off, nothing to do with Belgian yeast!)
