17:30 visit. Queued for an age to get served today even though not overly busy. Four ales on and my pint was well short of an acceptable measure. Staff are none too keen either. Great building/conversion just let down today by poor service.

They have knocked the festival beers down to 1.50 or something equally cheap. Picked up yet another new festival beer may do all 50 yet.
Adnams - Ghost Ship4.50ExcellentI really like this wheat beer with lovely hops on the finish
Oakleaf (now see Fallen Acorn entries) - Wethers Original4.80GoodVery drinkable bitter. Good nick some biscuit and hop on the finish.

RCH - Strawberry Line5.00Not Tried

Three beers turned over since yesterday which explains the poor conition of yesterday's beers.
BrewDog - Edge3.20GoodI mean its a good beer but way too hoppy to be a mild. Like Dark Star Over the Moon its a dark bitter.
St Austell - Coxswain's Special4.00GoodNot quite as good as first time I had it but it is a solidly good session bitter which is actually bitter.
Lincolnshire Craft (formerly Tom Wood's) - Tom Woods Vanilla Orchid4.80PoorMagogany colour with thin beige head. A little suspicious of the vanilla title. Certainly vanilla and malt on the aroma. Bit toasty too. Problem is the flavour that has some cardboard that is not entirely pleasant. Finish has a bit more rich malt and a touch more vanilla but the cardboard flavour lingers.

Came straight from work. Moderately busy. Excited to see the Harviestoun pump clip til I saw the coming soon sign.
Palm - Steenbrugge Blond6.00AcceptableBit lacking on hops and thin in mouth.
Shepherd Neame - Sam Adams Blonde Ambition (superseded by 4.5% version)5.50AcceptableNot great to be honest. Bit of rose fruit and that is about it. Even a touch of diacetyl.
Caledonian - Edinburgh Strong Ale6.40AcceptableQuite strong and the syrupy alcohol is not well hidden. Ok though
Greene King - Abbot Ale5.00Not Tried
JW Lees (see also Lees) - Chocoholic3.60Not Tried
Banks's - UCB5.30Not Tried

First day of autumn beer festival and the beers were good.
Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Young's Ram Rod5.00ExcellentBrown gold colour with lasting beige head. Some Young’s yeast on aroma, but actually quite bitter. Plenty of EKG present. Plenty of EKG on aroma. Lovely condition. Lve the hop aroma, really beautiful hop. I love it. Real biting English style IPA English EKG hop all overy it. I burped EKG hop!!
Hook Norton - Easy Weasel Ale4.50GoodBrown, lasting beige head. Biscuity bitter, fullish in mouth, subtle rich fruit. Tasty best bitter, rather good. Some fruit on aroma. Good condition.

I sat upstairs staring at the painted ceiling, which was nice.
Saltaire - Cascade Pale Ale4.80ExcellentBeautiful condition and good hoppy aroma and bite.

The beer selection here I thought was very good.
Adnams - Broadside4.70ExcellentAn excellent strong bitter with lots of good fruit flavours and peppery hop on the finish
Harviestoun - Schiehallion4.80AcceptableNot quite right, flavours were a bit off, but still a very good cask lager.
Leeds - Midnight Bell4.80Not Tried
Windsor Castle (see also Sadler's entry) - Sadler's Stumbling Badger4.90Not Tried

It was an odd one, I went in after work and there seemed to be virutally no beers on at all until the bar manager said, that they didn't have the pump clips for the festival ales on, so you had to read the backs of the pumps. Sounds odd and it was.
Banks's - Maui Brewery Coconut Porter5.00ExceptionalIn the best form so far and I have just fallen for this beer completely. I love the depth in the mouth, the quality of the flavours, that slightly odd thing that is possibly the coconut and it really just makes you feel happy.
