    Some varied entries and finally a week with no repeats. Beer with a tea infusion seems to be a marmite area looking at some of the ratings.
    Extra pts for @MikeTheNative with the most monthly check-ins, and for a beer with that name, rightfully so as its now stuck in my head.


    With 6 rounds to go, it looking like it will be a win for someone in the top 4 going on score history. When will @Ahleckz play his Jester?

    The more observant of you may notice a marked improvement from @Feek. I've been back through his entries and decided to award him points if he met the criteria. Don't let him overtake you, that would just be embarrassing.


    Next round: U – Untappd - Enter the beer with highest Untappd score over 4.25 and must have over 300 check-ins at time of judging. (18th Sept)

    Bonus pts - 1pt for weakest ABV (over 2.7%)

    I have points! Thank you.

    I think I've got valid entries for the remaining weeks (except next week as that's the Untapped round).

    Mine. Had it quite a while back and according to Untappd, I really enjoyed it.

    Quite surprised as I wasn't expecting much from this weeks entry:

    Nearly a duplicate again with us! That was the beer I had on my list to buy for this week but I want able to find one in a shop and came across another in the end.

    Here's mine:

    I had no idea tea beer was a thing before this - and I think I'll go back to being oblivious to it now!
    Didn't really enjoy this one (although it wasn't as bad as I was expecting). Orange+tea flavour and very low alcohol content it was kinda similar to Lipton Iced Tea.

    Not really sure to make of this, I liked it but it didn't taste like beer to me. Just tasted like alcoholic fruit juice.
    It was also 8% so after having a lunch I had to take a nap. :p

    And mine, can't decide if i liked it or not. One mouthful would work but then the next didn't!

    @Bickaxe when do entries have to be in?
    I've not been able to get a beer this week but I'm going to Bristol tomorrow so should be able to get one across Saturday evening.

    Ok thanks, I get to Bristol about 2.00 so that should be fine.

    Good luck.

    I'm luckily going to drop some stuff off at my stepsons place near Didsbury so can go to a decent shop there.

    I have a few nearby but none had any which qualified.

    I've found two I know the shop stocks. Might give them an email to make sure they save me a can.
    This round was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

    Yeah i thought that too. The shop i'm heading to is belting, so hoping i can stock up for a few weeks worth.

    Although not going to coincide well with my "no drinking after the holiday" plan!

    I think this certainly fits the bill for an elite round. Every beer should, in theory, be fantastic (except sours).

    I had 3 options. It was 4 but one of them has dropped since I got it.

    I might have to get friends and pump up the ratings to be safe :p

    Haha awesome plan!

    Mines damn strong so will be a while before I have that.

    The shop did me proud though. Stocked up for a few weeks. Only the X rated one I’m struggling with now.
