Marble - Lagonda IPA5.00ExcellentListed as 5.0% ABV.
Blue Monkey - Infinity IPA (was Infinity)4.60Excellent
Arbor Ales - Oyster Stout4.60ExcellentIn the program as 4.6% ABV.
Coniston - No.9 Barley Wine8.50ExcellentChampion Beer of Britain 2012. Third of a pint measure. Long queue was observed at 3pm when this was put on. Half an hour later I got my third without waiting.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Wild River4.50Excellent
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Brewer's Reserve No.48.50ExcellentMatured in Armagnac casks. Third of a pint. Rich, full-bodied. Lovely.
Greene King - 5X12.00ExcellentThird of a pint. Vintage oak-aged beer normally unavailable to the drinking public and reserved for blending into GK's other beers. Don't believe GK can make great beer? Then you need to try this!
Thwaites - 13 Guns (canned)5.50ExcellentThwaites turn their hands to an American style IPA and come up with a winner. My favourite beer of the day.
Falstaff - 3-Faze3.80Good
Stone - Pale Ale5.40Good
