Highlights of Saturday's visit to London ...

West Berkshire Good Old Boy 4.0%, a nice and malty best bitter in the Depot near Caledonian Road tube station.

Golden Arsenal Session 3.8%, a malty and pleasant session ale in the Arkstar adjacent to Holloway Road tube station.

Orkney Dark Island 4.6%, an old favourite and a dark ale with chocolate, coffee and dark fruit flavours in Spouters Corner, Wood Green.

A few recently enjoyed ales ...

White Rose Buddha The Stout 4.8%, jet black in colour, chocolate, coffee, berries and spice, in the Queens, Doncaster. Very nice!

White Rose Best Bitter 4.3%, a mid-brown best bitter. Some roasted malt, caramel and fruit. A smooth quaffable drink (also in the Queens).

Old Mill La Bolsa 4.5%, a dark brown coffee porter, in the Marketplace Alehouse and Deli, Doncaster. Chocolate & coffee, some roasted malt and toffee. Nice if slightly on the thin side for a porter.

Lymestone Stonefish Mild 4.4%, in the Lower Angel, Warrington. Surprisingly pours amber. Some chocolate & malt, biscuit, toffee, banana plus a subtle nuttiness. Ticks a lot of boxes.

Enjoyed a few decent ales in the Lower Angel, Warrington on Wednesday evening ...

Cross Bay Two - Four 4.0%, a sweet brown ale, referred to as Canadian due to the maple in it. Nutty by virtue of pekan. Very nice.

Blackedge Dark Rum 4.6%, an excellent rum infused porter.

I also had the best pint of Brains The Rev. James I've had for quite some time.

Highlights of an evening in Sheffield yesterday ...

Thornbridge Ena 4.6% and Thornbridge Lord Marples 4.0% in the Bath Hotel. The former is a mahogany coloured sweet milk stout with chocolate, lactose and malt combining beautifully. The latter one of my favourite best bitters.

The Bath Hotel is now a Thornbridge pub.

Hardy & Hanson's Olde Trip 4.3%, in the Frog & Parrot. Another old favourite, a best bitter, sometimes referred to as a premium ale. This has biscuit, caramel and toffee amongst its flavours.

Chantry Iron & Steel 4.0%, a malty best bitter with caramel and toffee flavours, was on Good form in the Tut n Shive, Doncaster last night.

We also popped in to see Dave & Ruth in the (Little) Plough next door following their move from the Corner Pin. A delayed first night there for them and the situation at the pub currently is a complicated mess in truth. Hopefully, all will be resolved quickly.

Is Nick still the owner Gary or have Dave and Ruth taken over completely?
If you want to know who rules you, simply ask “Who is it that we are not allowed to criticise”?

Nick is still the owner with Dave & Ruth taking over the management of the pub.

While in Paphos Cyprus last week found a pub with Wadworth IPA
A very nice drink as well, don't know if anyone has come across it here anywhere?

Not one I've had although I have had their Burnt Orange IPA, as part of the Wetherspoons Autumn 2018 Festival, which was nice. I'm also a fan of the brewery's 6X (An amber ale).
