I was late getting here as work intervened,butmet up with friends and family as planned as darkness fell.
Epicurus Craft Beer (formerly Hornbeam) - Lemon Blosson3.70ExceptionalThe first beer that I tried and the beer of the Festival for me. The citrus really laid the dust after a day's corn cart.
Cumbrian Legendary - Dickie Doodle3.90ExceptionalFlavoursome and hoppy-shame about the name though.
Concrete Cow - Pail Ale3.70ExcellentA good refreshing hoppy golden beer in the almost lager mode that I find I enjoy despite myself.
Otley - O3 Boss4.40ExcellentFor some reason I always think that Otley beers come from God's own county. Never mind, this is a decent mid brown bitter with a hearty brown ambience.
Palmers - Dorset Gold4.50GoodI've always wanted to try Palmers beers as they are one of the (reasonably)few listed in Frank Baillie's Beer Drinkers Companion that I've never come across. Worth the wait?-Yes, but I was slowing by then, and the troops were getting fractious.
