AndrewGood17 Apr 2009 Not actually a festival beer which was a shame as it was better than those festival beers I tried. Rich orangy syrupy beer with lots of citrus hops.
IanExcellent17 Apr 2009 After drinking some disappointing festival beers, this was superb. Gold, lasting beige head. Lots of grapefruit hop on aroma. Lots of hops everywhere. That is excellent uber hoppy beer for the UK. Resiny hops, lovely.

The Last Inn, Oswestry, Shropshire

Bear & Ragged StaffGood17 Aug 2013 For me, the best beer on show tonight. Bags of flavour, a proper beer.

The County Hotel, Ashford, Kent

ChrisEAcceptable22 Jul 2013
IanExcellent31 May 2009 Just as hoppy as when I had it in The Society Rooms in Maidstone. I swear there is something like Simcoe hops in this, something PNW American anyway. So drinkable, but I could only have one as the ironing at home was calling me.

Bear & Ragged StaffExcellent11 Oct 2011 Consistent with the last time I tried this quality English ale. Nicely rounded with a biscuity flavour.
Bear & Ragged StaffGood02 May 2011 A classic English Ale, copper in colour and a slightly biscuity aftertaste. Very nice.

Spooner's Bar, Porthmadog, Gwynedd

RayGood11 Aug 2010 Copper ale with a solid malty base. Crisp and tart in the mouth with a dry finish.
