    The real stand out beer was the Hammerton /Vertigo collab beer Van Food, a milk stout with rich coffee and chocolate flavours and a quite amazing biscuit aroma enjoyed at The Hammerton Brewery yesterday.

    Beeston,Loughborough ,N1 and N16.

    Kirkstall -- Dissolution IPA
    Marble -- Lagonda
    Lenton Lane -- Kapua Roa Ma *
    Blue Monkey -- BG Sips *
    Moonface -- Dancing Queen
    Blue Monkey -- 99 Red Baboons *
    Blue Monkey -- Infinity IPA *
    Blue Monkey -- Chocolate Amerillo Guerilla Stout *
    Blue Monkey -- Monkey Chocolate Coconut MILD *
    Beavertown -- Gamma Ray (keg)
    Beavertown -- Neck Oil (keg)
    Five Points -- XPA
    Thornbridge -- Brother Rabbit
    Open Gate -- Citra IPA (keg)
    Timothy Taylor -- Landlord

    From the sublime in the East Midlands to the ridiculous in North London with BOTW going to Blue Monkey Chocolate Coconut MILD first among equals in a great line up at The Organ Grinder.It sounds all wrong,and the coconut was pronounced but the classic mild dryness was there and at 4% in packed some flavours in perfect nick.

    Next week much more subdued,may tick off more heritage in North London.

    Some similarities to Mr F above:

    Kirkstall Dissolution IPA*
    Marble Lagonda
    Lenton Lane Kapua Roa Ma*
    Chapter Brewing Dead Man's Fist*
    Moonface Dancing Queen
    Blue Monkey Monkey Chocolate Coconut Mild*
    Blue Monkey Junior Ape (keg)
    Blue Monkey Jubilape*
    Everards Smash
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*
    Hop Back Summer Lightening*

    Some excellent beers this week and both the Dead Man's Fist, a smoked porter, and the Chocolate Coconut Mild were unusual and superb.
    BOTW has to be Blue Monkey Jubilape. A 5.9% Earl Grey IPA with distinctive bergamot but beautifully balanced and delicious. Doubt I'll find a Jubilee beer as good.

    An absolutely superb pint of Bewdley Brewery - Worcestershire Way in The Black Boy

    Another 10 from me for this pub, thoroughly enjoyed my visit. After a hike up that killer hill to get there, the beer tasted like nectar. A very hard pub to leave...

    Presumably if you do leave Its downhill all the way, a slippery slope so to speak.
