    Had an excellent week this week, after a couple of poor ones. Highlights included Pictish Palisade, Moor Confidence, Raw Anibus Porter, and the ever reliable Dark Star APA.

    But despite the strong competition there is a clear BOTW - Marble Pint, enjoyed in the excellent Magpie and Crown in Brentford.

    Managed to try 20 different beers in Nottingham on Friday, topped up with a flying pint of Jaipur, in the Sheffield Tap, due to an an unscheduled stop in the station. Tried this week:

    Castle Rock - Pale Ale.
    Castle Rock - Black Gold.
    Castle Rock - Preservation Fine Ale.
    Castle Rock - Sheriff's Tipple.
    Castle Rock - William 'Bendigo' Thompson.
    Castle rock - Elsie Mo.
    Nottingham Brewery - Rock Mild.
    Nottingham Brewery - Knight's Tale.
    Nutbrook - Banter.
    Dr Morton's - Rubrication.
    Nottingham Brewery - EPA.
    Dancing Duck - Dark Drake.
    Fyne - Jarl.
    Ilkley - Stout Mary.
    Liverpool Organic Brewery - Jade.
    Blue Monkey - Evolution.
    Nottingham Brewery - Rock Bitter.
    Holdens - Black Country Bitter.
    Acorn - Golden Embers.
    Wentworth - Oatmeal Stout.
    Thornbridge - Jaipur.

    Overall, a lot of solid beers, but not many with the wow factor. My top three were the Rubrication, Dark Drake and the fabulous Fyne Jarl, my BOTW.

    I must say I agree with A&H that nothing in Nottingham made me go WOW.

    I like the Fyne Jarl, but I also know that if you have more than a pint your mouth is so dry you need something else to quench the thirst.

    So as everybody had a half.... I don't think the full effect was felt.

    My BOTW is going to be Thwaites (yes Thwaites) Our Boys tried more thas once in The Baum on Saturday night.

    The best new beer they've brewed in ages. Unusually for Thwaites it's light, hoppy and 4.4%

    It's also in aid of the British Legion.

    I have a (very) hazy memory of you telling us this in The Ropewalk, on Friday, ROB. Still like to try more than a pint though!

    Having missed out on the PG meet-up I don't have much variety to choose from this week but it's going to be Fullers Black Cab Stout. A very welcome addition to their Winter stable.

    The Nottingham session obviously dominated the week but had a few decent pints elsewhere including a couple of enjoyable pints new to me in the Penderels Oak, Holborn (Adnams New Zealand IPA and DBC Jurassic). Since a good beer is also about the company and surroundings that go with it, I'll prompt for the Liverpool Organic Brewery Jade at the Organ Grinder in Nottingham. I think most people made a beeline for the Blue Monkey beers and I may have been the only one to try it but it was my favourite beer of the day.
