    An early vote for Robinson's seasonal Battering Ram (4.0%).

    A proper autumnal ale, dark and malty, and doing great business as the guest ale in the village club at a bargain £2.25.

    It is also made from Bullion hops, which is a new variety to me.

    I think Bullion is quite old(introduced in the 1920s-I remember people growing it in the 70s or 80s, and I don't seem to think my neighbour grows them now.

    Pretty easy choice this week, as I don't expect to come across anything much this weekend. Elgood's Greyhound, a couple of pints from a fresh barrel, that's why I drink real ale.
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........

    I'm stuck in exile at the moment in Jersey, so not exactly a wide choice, but I think my beer of the week goes to the Jersey Liberation Rouge, a 4.5 % red ale (surprisingly), which has a really nice full fruity taste. Being served straight from the barrel helps I'm sure.

    It usually does..........
    Despite my somewhat pessimistic view of this weekend, another decent beer turned up last night, St Austell's Proper Job. Mind you it's still the Greyhound for me, and everyone else goin on the rate it's disappearing...

    The only beer consumed this week was Thwaites Wainwright in The Chequers,Woolmer Green near the office so by default my BOTW.

    Next week a spot of boating and boozing down the River Lee then up the tidal Thames from Limehouse to Brentford,after which ,in a state of nervous exhaustion many pints will be quaffed which will surely throw up a better BOTW ?

    Roosters Mature Whiskey Stout 5.7% at the Maltings in York was my BOTW. So good had another the next day before it ran out.

    Will have to keep good records of what I enjoy in Nottingham this week to remember the good ones.
