Not surprisingly a bit short of ale following the winter beet festival. Outrageous - an employee of Molson Coors was (a customer) but saying how wonderful the Carling was!! Really!!

Marston's - Bass4.40AcceptableActually not bad, just a hint of the caramelness and smoothness that a good pint of Bass used to have. Decently colour and poured well.

Quite busy, not too many takers for the beer festival given the pretty foul weather and mid week date, hopefully better for the weekend
BeerABVScoreNotes
Spire - Whiter Shade of Pale4.00GoodVery nice light, golden ale, very hoppy and citrussy. Nothing unusual but inoffensive and quoffable
Barlow - Black5.00GoodReally dark, tasty, mildesque beer, very roast malt flavour with lingering toffee overtones. Nothing unusual but very nice
Dancing Duck - Ey Up3.90AcceptableNice golden beer, quite hoppy, nothing exceptional, a bit cold but given outside in 3 degrees that's fair enough
