    Most unlikely to get to a pub this weekend,so might as well get in an early nomination rather than being tail end Charlie.My BOTW was Fullers ESB ,always very well kept in The Saracens Head,Kings Langley and it slipped down with ease.

    Now on the last leg of my 2010 voyage around the canal system,with the slow slog down the Grand Union , then through central London before the scenic joys of the lower Lee Valley.It's now getting more difficult to discover outstanding ale and the next stops at Rickmansworth and Uxbridge are unlikely to change that scenario,but fortune favours the brave.

    A very good week beer-wise, so picking a winner has been tougher than normal.

    Highlights included Dark Star Tripel, Palmers Best Bitter, Marble Summer Marbles, Beartown Black Bear, Titanic Stout and Castle Rock Harvest Pale, but there were two I enjoyed even more than this lot; Marble Chocolate Marble and Fyne Ales Highlander. I've been waiting a long time to try the Marble Chocolate Marble, as we never seem to see their beers down here and it was well worth the wait, so I will make it my BOTW, especially as I've nominated the excellent Highlander in the past.

    Despite the high quality of Edinburgh pubs, my BOTW was actually at a private party this week (thank God I didn't have to pay for it - corporate hospitality is a wonderful thing) - Harviestoun Ola Dubh. By no means a session beer, and I was full to the brim after two bottles (so had to wash it down with a Sciehallion or two - difficult to know exactly how many when your glass keeps getting topped up), but an enjoyable experience. Really shouldn't have had the whiskey chasers though - trouble is my mind thinks I'm still 21 even when my body tells it otherwise.

    Reading through this thread, Scottish beer sseem to have done unusually well this week.

    I too am choosing a beer that is not a session beer but it went down a treat. I have enjoyed so many beers at Tamworth and Minehead beer festivals, but the one beer stands out as superb.

    Quantock UXB 9%. BOTW.

    Wow - it was a goodun.
