Another look at the current Wetherspoon beer festival list.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tring - Moloko4.50GoodA well-flavoured Milk Stout, let down a bit here by flat condition.
Mordue - Admiral4.80AcceptableA chestnut-coloured, fruity, traditional Bitter with a spicy hop presence. Would have enjoyed it more if condition had not been so flat.

15:30 Meal stop. Reasonably quiet. Table next to us had had a three foot tall beer tube. These are known as giraffes on the continent, which I think is a far better name.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Sixpoint Make It Rain5.00ExcellentFull of hops along with the thick almost resinous note I find in some American beers.

15:00 Lunch stop. Most unusual 'Spoons we came in the Greek Street entrance which has booth seating and a separate bar only selling fizz beer. The main large hall of the pub was the home of the Marquee club from 1986 to 1996. The name comes from a pioneer cinema entrepreneur.

Crowded; mostly with tourists.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wood's - Twist Grip 4.40AcceptableAmber-coloured. Disappointing, sweetish, rather soapy bitter.
Wadworth - 6X 90th Anniversary Ale6.00AcceptableBeefed-up version of the regular 6X. All the usual 6X flavours but in spades. Sweetish, tangy Crystal malt. A bit vinous and woody. I think I prefer the regular version.
Hawkshead - American Red4.20Not Tried
Caledonian - Lodewijk's Fly by Night4.20Not Tried

I actually only stopped in here as I needed to go to the toilet. But as it turned out wetherspoons have an international ale festival on at the moment. Stayed for a half then carried on to The Borderline for the gig I was off to.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Barons - Bush Berry Porter4.50ExcellentLoads of fruit and chocolate in this really interesting porter.
