    I've had the odd beer or two in Liverpool this week , but without doubt the best, and my BotW is the Brimstage Oyster Catcher Stout, enjoyed at the Vernon Arms on a couple of occasions

    I should put Wye Valley Butty Bach as I had pints of it on Saturday, but feel I must put the Brentwood Chockwork Orange I had at the Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield on Friday as my BOTW. Super flavour.

    Ive not had much beer this week after last weeks Marathon session. Only a few 5 Pints of Sharps Doom Bar 5 Pints of St Austell Tribute 6 Pints of Abbot Special Reserve 3 Pints of Guinness 4 Bottles of Newcastle Brown.

    Doom Bar & Tribute were both excellent but I will go for the Abbot Reserve as Beer of the week as I don't see it around that often.

    Fairly quiet week for me. Enjoyed Leeds 'Gathering Storm' and Elland 'Eden' but the clear winner and my BOTW was BrewDog 'Trashy Blonde'

    Challenging beer of the week goes to BrewDog Hardcore IPA 9%ABV!. Some complex flavours in there, but overall just too unbalanced and overly alcoholic for my palate.

    The brilliant Ascot Ales Anastasia's Imperial Stout at the Nags Head. Sublime.

    Had a very interesting beer in The Magpie and Crown ,Brentford at the start of a weekend boat trip through the canals of central London.It was called Collaboration Porter and came from The London Brewers Alliance,a loose arrangement between the brewers from all 15 breweries in London.The idea was to revive the London Porter style using old recipies and this 5.2% beer was easily quaffable,well balanced and a very worthy BOTW.
    I am sure London CAMRA members will be more aware of the London Brewers Alliance than I was ,but I hope this ale wont turn out to be a one off special,as I would gladly sink a few more pints in the future.

    A couple of interesting pints this week including the latest cask version of Youngs Ram Rod - one of their better ales. Top of the pile this week though, and I don't usually go for the darker ones, is the Thwaites Nutty Black at the Wat Tyler in Dartford.
