Sheffield Waterworks - Woodforde's West Coast Wherry 4.3%, an American-style red rye ale. Citrusy, hoppy with a dry finish.

The Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield - Shepherd Neame Hop County 4.8%, a quite interesting golden ale with tropical fruit and caramel flavours. Strangely, quite nice.

The Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield - Oakham Heights of Oblivion 3.9%, to me, a bland golden hoppy session IPA. Many of this brewery's ales taste very similar to me.

The Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield - Black Sheep Choc & Orange Stout 5.0%, not as expected, I was looking for something akin to Terry's Chocolate Orange but in truth it's just bland with little flavour.

The Friar Penketh, Warrington - Saltaire Amarillo 4.5%,straw coloured and described as a citrusy golden ale. Some orange but not overly citrusy. A malt, bitter and fruity finish. Not bad.

The Friar Penketh, Warrington - Big Shed Kol Schisel 4.2%, brewed by Australian brewer Craig Basford at Hook Norton brewery. A straw coloured Australian pale ale. Yeasty, malty and spicy with very subtle citrus notes. Quite nice and very drinkable.

The Looking Glass, Warrington - Greene King Heritage Ernest Hop Pale Ale 5.0%, as I find with a lot of GK ales, much of a muchness. A pale ale with a little fruit, some malt and hops but nothing exciting.
