Brighton Bier Grand Havana (Smoked Porter) 5.0% in the Maltings

Wickwar Cotswold Way 4.2% was a very nice find in the Red Lion earlier in the week. The Gatehouse had Milestone Sup-Porter at 5.2% (I assume a topical / specialty brew) and the Tut had Brains SA 4.2% available.

The next Wetherspoons Real Ale Festival officially kicks off next Friday and runs until Sunday 1 November.
(although it's often the case that some of the fifty will be available before and after)

First night of the 'Spoons real ale festival yesterday and six ales sampled;

Sixpoint Bengali 6.4% (USA, brewed at Adnams brewery) & Ishii Brewing Minagof Smoked Porter 5.5% (Guam, brewed at Wadworth brewery) in the Red Lion.
Flying Dutchman Spiced Ale 4.4% (Netherlands, brewed at Caledonian brewery) & Shepherd Neame Red Sails 4.0% in the Angel.
Titanic 7 C's 5.0% & Exmoor Gold Export 5.5% in the Gatehouse.

Three of the ten International brews tasted and couldn't split the Smoked Porter & the Spiced Ale (the latter having hints of lemongrass).

Of the 'home' brews, the Red Sails ticked most boxes (a lovely cherry and chocolate porter).
