Hot day. ...but efficiently run entry this year. It's a big shed with beer. Good fun. Got a little bit tipsy.

Caveman (latterly a cuckoo at Leatherbritches) - Palaeolithic3.80GoodNice body of rye-like. Mellon and grapefruit.
Goacher's - India Pearl Ale5.60GoodRough mouth. Nettle, alcohol. No Goacher's core flavour - which isn't surprising.
