Shepherd Neame - Firestone Red Nectar Ale5.00AcceptableRather metallic tasting with a slight aroma of mouthwash. An unremarkable strong bitter beer. My score 14/20.
Box Steam - Hell of a Ride4.20AcceptableAmber bitter with most bitterness deriving from malt. Little hop character and a dry, bitter finish. My score 13/20.

Daleside - Spring Frenzy3.40GoodSurprisingly full flavoured for its strength with good biscuity malt dominant over hoppiness. My score 15/20.
Rooster's - Patriot4.70AcceptablePale strong bitter with an earthy, grassy hop flavour that is not really to my taste. My score 13/20.

First full day of the Ratebeer European Summer Gathering 2009. We more or less all met up here to have breakfast, have one or two beers and to say hello to some friends we haven't seen in a year or two.
Acorn - Ginger Nuts4.20AcceptableGold, lasting off white head. Decent golden ale with some ginger, not too strong, but enough for interest.
