Arrived at opening with Ian. Sat in the quiet room at the back and chatted to Ian and Paul. Later say Chris and later still, Phil and Ang. Good fun as always.
Goacher's - 1066 Old Ale6.70ExceptionalAwesomely good. Had 1.5 pints of this - which is going some for me at a beer festival where I usually just have halves of things.
Larkins - Porter5.20ExceptionalAwesome. I could have 'scooped' but, hey, why on earth would I when this was on!
Green Jack - Lurcher Stout4.80ExcellentBuscuit malty hint of cream, hint of liquorish. Smooth
Abigale - Hoyman's Porter4.70Goodroasted tart dusty chocolate. Light ang a touch fruity.
Tír Dhá Ghlas - Jimmy's Riddle4.00GoodA bit thin and alchol and powdery. Liqorish sour
Waen - Blackberry Stout3.80AcceptableIan's right it smells of bleach. Netles. Hedge row. Rustic
