This was too good to miss- a beer festival on the way back from getting the week's meat supplies! I was one of the first in, but couldn't stay long, unfortunately.
Moorhouse's - Black Cat Mild3.40ExcellentA real proper dark and chocolatey mild. Doesn't surpass Goachers mild, but pretty damn good all the same.
Frome (formerly Milk Street) - Funky Monkey (organic)4.00ExcellentIt poured a bit hazy, but I really enjoyed this- a mid brown beer with a complex mix of fruit flavours followed by a blast of citrus. This is the second beer from Milk Street that I've drunk, and would like to try more.
Wolf - Golden Jackal3.70GoodNot quite as memorable as I've had this in the past, the hops seemed muted.
