warm day. Plastic glasses. But I had my oversized Margate festival glass. Very disappointed to see that when i poured my beer from the plastic to a proper glass that the beer was approx 10% short of the line. Others found the same. At 4.50 a pint felt well ripped off!

Kent - Green Giant (EKG)6.00Excellent
Boutilliers - Green Hop Kölsch5.20AcceptableTghis was the 6.8% version. Very yeasty. Tasted like it wasnt ready. Awful, but others loved it.

Afternoon - a bit showery but plenty of room under cover in the marquee. The chalk board was not too easily related to the casks and was rather lacking in detail. About 36 ales on from about 26 brewers - a lot of “one offs” so I have only listed those I tried - but well worth a visit (beware though - £4.50 a pint, £2.30 a half).

Mad Cat - EKG Oat Pale3.80GoodPleasant, very dry.
Time and Tide - Green Hop Pale Ale4.80GoodPale, subtle, quite sweet - cloudy to the point of opaqueness.
