    A number of serious sessions during the week,with some top ale.

    Marston's --- Ascalon
    Thornbridge --- Jaipur IPA * (3PT)
    Revolutions BrewCo --- Hex 6 Hop IPA *
    Scribblers Ales -- One Special Brew over the Cuckoos Nest *
    Blue Monkey -- Ape Ale* (3PT)
    Blackjack -- Aces High * (>3PT)
    Mighty Oak -- Oscar Wilde MILD *
    Dark Star -- Hophead
    Saltaire -- Cascadian Black *
    Saltaire -- Citra *
    Saltaire -- Stateside IPA *
    North Brewing -- Prototype

    Very difficult to pick a winner,the Blackjack Aces High was fantastic but BOTW goes to Blue Monkey Ape Ale,a sublime quaff in The Organ Grinder,Nottingham.

    Next week needs to be quieter after that lot.

    Adnams Ghostship
    Fourpure Shape Shifter IPA
    Partizan Partizan Pale
    Torrside Yellow Peak APA

    Actually managed a beer this week:

    Scribblers One Special Brew Over the Cuckoo's Nest*
    Blue Monkey Ape Ale*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    All excellent but given that Ape Ale has already had a nomination and it's been my BOTW recently, BOTW goes to Hop Back Summer Lightening. Still a very high quality and quaffable beer after all these years.

    Not much to gladden the heart, this week.

    Fernandes - Sixty Shilling Mild.
    Fernandes - Jackdaw Mild.*
    Fernandes - Pekko.
    Whitstable - Oyster Stout.
    Moorhouses - Stray Dog.
    Ossett - Silver Fox.

    The Jackdaw, a strong mild (5%), was easily the pick of a pretty ho-hum bunch.
