We were here in the afternoon. People were enjoying the music and watching the morris dancers.
Elgood's - Black Dog Mild3.60ExceptionalThe beer of the festival for me.Black , roast, chocolate. Epic
Allendale - Wolf5.50ExceptionalFull bodied, impressive fruit flavour, memorable red colour. Grand.
Rooster's - YPA (Yorkshire Pale Ale)4.10ExcellentOne of the better golden ales:decent horticultural character. Roosters have had some stick from various commentators: I'll happily seek them out next month in Yorkshire.
York (now brewed at Black Sheep) - Yorkshire Terrier4.20ExcellentMore a Patterdale than a yorkshire! Determined. I preferred this to York Decade that I drank last year.
Castle Rock - Screech Owl5.50ExcellentA strong , citrussy golden IPA. Couldn't drink too much of this, though.
Bazens' - Zebra Best Bitter4.30AcceptableGetting a bit jaded by now.Good but not memorable. Now if it had stripes...Unusual to see a"best bitter" nowdays
Phoenix - Monkeytown Mild3.90PoorDidn't like this one-flavour locked away. A pity.
