Afternoon 12 til 4pm busier than expected with all tables upstairs taken, luckily the others in my group had arrived earlier, nabbed a table and saved me a place. A simple token system in operation one token in exchange for any beer made things easier.
Elliswood - Just One More4.20ExceptionalA deep golden amber ale with a lovely cirtus flavour and soft fruit notes.
Great North Eastern - Clasper's Citra Blonde3.80ExceptionalA refreshing and fruity pale ale bursting with grapefruit and mango Citra hops. In honour of Henry "Harry" Clasper 1812-1870 a world champion rower and boat builder.
Fine Tuned - Hop Culture5.00ExceptionalA golden ale powerfully hopped with Citra and Amarillo, perfectly balanced from the bitterness of the hops and sweetness from the malts.
Brightside - Northwestern4.80ExceptionalLight golden in colour with moderate bitterness. Mainly hopped from North American and Styrian Wolf. Its delicious citrus aromatics and juicy flavours bring a splash of sunshine to the Beerex!
Big Hand - Seren3.70ExcellentA pale full flavoured ale. Hoppy with a fruity aroma and taste.
Bingley - Endeavour3.70ExcellentA single hopped blonde using British hop Endeavour. Blackcurrant and loganberry with spice notes on the aroma. Grapefruit and lime in the flavour but not overpowering with a slight bitterness.
Copper Street - Saxon Gold4.70ExcellentA delicious hard hitting golden ale packed with Columbus hops providing a subtle hint of citrus and a dry finish that satifies the heaviest of thirst.
Clavell & Hind - Blunderbuss4.20GoodA hedonistic explosion of cirtus and tropical fruits in this pale ale that burst with flavour in the same explosive manner of a blunderbuss discharging lead.
Drop the Anchor - Tucktonia Pale Ale4.70GoodThis fruity pale ale has amazing aromas and flavour, bags of personality with bold tropical fruits including melon, grapefruit and pineapple.
