    Have tried to eschew the stupidly named Christmas stuff this week, although the Marstons Christmas Pudding Spiced Ale was very good. But my BotW is Oxfordshire Ales Choc Ox, a dark beer with chocolate undertones.

    There was quite a lot of Adnams Christmas Cheer about in the former Spirit Group pubs in London that Punch Taverns are now rebranding as Taylor Walker outlets - quite light for a festive ale, but a nice ruby colour and something I got a taste for...

    A quiet beer week with little to savour but I did pop out for a couple last night just to stretch my legs and was quite taken in by the Weltons Black Turkey at the wat Tyler, Dartford. Not a particularly favourite brewery or beer style but at 5.2% went down quite nicely.

    Also on Christmas Eve:
    Springhead 'Running Meg'
    HopBack 'Winter Lightning'
    Roosters 'Mocha Stout'
    BrewDog 'Edge'
    Ossett 'Deer Hill Porter'
    Riverhead 'Marsden Merry Maker'

    A very difficult choice this week, as there were several strong contenders. In the end I'm giving it to Riverhead 'Marsden Merry Maker'.
