4th Beer and bangers festival. Outside marquee hosting the guest ales, with the usual ales in the bars, and varieties of sausages for just a quid. Chocolate choice upstairs as well in the skittles alley! Great evening, lots of folk inside and out

Timothy Taylor - Boltmaker (formerly Best Bitter)4.00ExcellentBeer of the night. Full of hops, lovely brown colour and great aromas. Very nice pint indeed
Castle Rock - Harvest Pale3.80Excellent
Oakham - Inferno4.00ExcellentVery hoppy, lovely lemony tang and a great drink
Burton Bridge - Golden Delicious3.80Good
Derby - Something for the Weekend4.60GoodNice golden colour and nicely hopped, no overriding features though
Hook Norton - Old Hooky4.60Acceptable
Tower - Imperial5.00AcceptableI expected to like this but just not to my taste. Golden and hopped but a strange biscuity finish which I did not like
Batham - Mild Ale3.50PoorInsipid and tasteless
Leatherbritches - Lemongrass & Ginger3.80PoorNo taste at all. Bizarre given the name

Burton Bridge - Golden Delicious3.80AcceptableBeers slightly off tonight- not up to normal standard. Quite soapy, maybe cleaned lines, Bridge bitter the same.

Great atmosphere, around 8 o'clock, pleasantly busy and enjoyed hearing people asking about the beers, clearly their first visit to the pub. Warm, friendly and cozy
BeerABVScoreNotes
Burton Bridge - Cool Hand Luke4.50GoodThe January Gold Medal ale for the Bridge. Found out why I thought they taste similar - they are brewed to the same recipe, just with a different rotating hop. This one has Admiral & Challenger Hops and was pleasant, bitter, without being exceptional.

Lovely atmosphere, nice fire going and delighted to see the VAT increase hadn't been passed on (still £2.35 a pint!!)
BeerABVScoreNotes
Burton Bridge - Golden Delicious3.80ExceptionalDelightful pint, perfectly served and full of hoppy flavour and a dry bitter finished. Solid head and perfect temperature.
Burton Bridge - Damson Porter4.50ExcellentLovely, full of fruit and dark, complex flavours flavours
Burton Bridge - Pull It Surprize4.50AcceptablePart of the monthly "Gold Medal Ale" rotation. I do find these generally quite generic and this one no different, no real taste to be honest and a bit of an amalgam of the rest of the Bridge offers
