    Brewster's Rutterkin at Beeston's Vic.
    First pint of a great day of good beer around Nottingham yesterday. A wonderful beer town.

    A fair selection ,getting some proper autumn weather on the canal too.

    Marston's -- Pedigree
    Banks's -- Black Diamond . My take on this ale is that it's like a lowish strength porter.
    Joules -- Pale Ale
    Shipyard -- Double Thumper . A collaberation between this US micro and Marston's ,brewed in Ringwood.
    Salopian -- Hop Twister


    The Hop Twister was good but BOTW goes to Shipyard Double Thumper which whistled past the three pint test at lunchtime in The Junction,Norbury Junction.Great balance between the malts and hops,got that marmalade finish.A revelation from Marston's ,maybe this is their new approach to upgrade their range by signing up deals with US micros who know what they are doing on the brewing front.

    No wonder I feel rough today looking at the strengths of these :-

    Hepworth Harvest Ale 4.5%*
    Siren Undercurrent 4.5%
    Dark Star American Pale Ale 4.7%*
    Hopcraft Graveyard Eyes 5.0%
    Everard Cambridge Belgian IPA 5.0%*
    Stonehenge Old Smokey 5.0%*
    Wharfebank Wispa IPA 5.1%
    Redemption Fellowship Porter 5.1%
    Kelham Island Pale Rider 5.2%*
    Clouded Minds Airlock IPA 5.4%
    Tap East IPA 5.6%
    Banks's Harpoon IPA 5.9%
    Shoreditch Triangle IPA 6.0%*
    Adnam's Sixpoint Bengali Tiger 6.4%*
    O'Hanlons Brewers Special Reserve 12.9%*

    The ones with a star were all good, but the award goes to Kelham Island Pale Rider (£2.30) which was spot on in the glamorous surroundings of the Beaten Docket in Cricklewood.

    Same as Moby I go for Darkstar-greenhopped ipa at the Craft beer co.Nearly £5 a pint though but the best beer and not the dearest one I had on the night.

    Better!

    Timothy Taylor-Golden Best. 3.5%abv. A favourite, on good form.
    Grainstore-Ten Fifty-5%abv. Amber strong bitter, bittersweet with stonefruit.
    Wylam-Gold Tankard-4% abv.Middle of the road golden ale, the hops and malt muddled by the sparkler!
    Copper Dragon-Best Bitter. 3.8% abv. Excellent example of a maligned style:first pint out of a fresh barrel. My BOTW
