It really would have been rude not to come along to this beer festival. I've been saying for years that this venue is perfect for a beer festival, glad someone finally made it happen. the band Hullabaloo were playing from 8 and provided a great atmosphere.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - DogBolter Dark Porter5.60ExcellentEver reliable strong porter. Rich and satisfying with lots of roasted malt, chocolate and a great mouthfeel.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Common Conspiracy4.80ExcellentBeer of the festival for me. Seems to be improving year by year and it's fantastic now. Hoppy and malty, just lovely really.
Adnams - Lighthouse3.40ExcellentReally well flavoured for such a 'weak' beer. Malty and a little biscuity, not as light as I expected.
Adnams - Mild3.20ExcellentSweet and malty, very drinkable. Top notch session ale.
Meantime - London Pale Ale4.30GoodA good enjoyable pint, however I always think there's just something missing I can't quite put my finger on.
Adnams - Gunhill4.00GoodSolid malty beer, pretty good really.
Ascot - Aardvark5.00GoodCrisp and very hoppy. Really tasty beer if just a tad sweet.
Caledonian - Flying Dutchman Wit Bier4.50Not Tried
