The 5th Wandsworth Common Beer Festival. Beers were a tad cold as on a outside stillage but all in good condition. Got steadily more crowded and difficult to get to the bar as the afternoon progressed.

Crate - Golden Ale3.80Excellent
Noss Beer Works - Church Ledge4.00ExcellentGood flavoured golden beer with the hps coming through.
Belleville - Commonside Pale Ale5.00ExcellentThe flavour really fought its way through the cold.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Brit Hop (collaboration with Hardknott)4.10ExcellentA collaborative beer brewed with Hardknot Dave. Well hopped.
Windsor & Eton - London Stout6.80ExcellentAn excellent stout. Probably the best beer I had at the festival.

Full Moon - Hopdance3.90GoodA bit thin and average.
Stocklinch Ales - Rambler's Gold3.80GoodCould have been any low gravity West Country golden ale.
Twisted Oak - Fallen Tree3.80GoodAnother West Country golden ale.

A lovely sunny day but the main beer area is in a courtyard which loses the sun early. Almost all the beers were on from opening (two were not quite ready) so plenty of choice. I have just listed those I had.
