Humpty Dumpty - Lemon & Ginger4.00ExcellentExactly what it said on the tin (cask label)
Kirkby Lonsdale - Ruskin's3.90ExcellentVery bitter on the tongue
Brightside - Best Bitter4.30ExcellentTongue rasping bitterness
Round Tower - Cotter4.10ExcellentExceedingly bitter
Mighty Oak - Yule Love Her4.10ExcellentSeemed almost spiced. Dark ale with lots of hop oils lingering on the lips. One colleague thought this would be the Beer of the Festival.
