Particularly looking forward to ...

Adnams Nut Brown
Inveralmond Fortingale
Long Man Old Man (have had this previously)
Wadworth Burnt Orange IPA
Orkney Celebration
Acorn XV Oatmeal Stout
Mauldons Blackberry Porter
Coach House Blueberry Classic Bitter
Daleside Morocco Ale
Dorset Jurassic Dark
Titanic Iron Curtain


Had a quick scan of the menu and the standout for me is the St Austell Big Job a 7.2% IPA, and the ciders of course :wink:

Off to a flyer last night as both Doncaster Wetherspoons had festival ales available ...

Red Lion
Coach House Blueberry Classic Bitter 5.0%, a straw coloured speciality ale with a subtle blueberry flavour. Nice.
Glamorgan Jemima's Pitchfork 4.5%, also straw coloured, this golden ale is flavoured with melon and pear.

The Gatehouse
Hawkshead Windermere Pale 3.5%, a golden fruity pale ale.
Dorset Jurassic Dark 5.9%, a mahogany dunkelweizen (dark wheat beer) with chocolate, fruit and port flavours. Very nice!

The Friar Penketh, Warrington
Long Man Old Man 4.3%, an old ale, malty with coffee and chocolate overtones. Delicious.

The Looking Glass, Warrington
Hook Norton Flagship 5.3%, a light bronze coloured IPA, the aroma is marmalade, the taste orange-laden. Not bad at all.
Mauldons Blackberry Porter 4.8%, some coffee in there but this is the nearest thing to alcohol ribena in both nose and taste. Nice enough.
Inveralmond Fortingale 4.0%, a brown ale in looks and style. Hints of chocolate, caramel and nut. Palatable enough if slightly blander than hoped for.

That's 8 of 30 found and sampled.

Thanks Gary, be a shame not to 'pop' in :CHEERS:

The Red Lion had Hook Nortons Flagship 5.3% IPA on today. Delightful, could easily have stayed all morning. :DRUNK:

The Rawson Spring, Hillsborough
Wolf Sirius Dog Star 4.4%, a dark red ale, fruity with underlying sweetness. Hints of butterscotch and caramel. Very nice.
Robinsons Freddy Brewger 4.3%, a red ale, malty with some toffee and blackcurrant notes. Very nice.

Sheffield Waterworks
Wadworth Burnt Orange 4.5%, a golden IPA with burnt toffee, caramel and orange flavours. Exceeded expectations.
Orkney Celebration 4.6%, from the same brewery as Dark Island, Red McGregor and Skullsplitter, this doesn't disappoint. Peat smoked malt with caramel. Excellent.

Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield
Rooster's Twenty Four Seven 4.7%, a pale golden grapefruit flavoured IPA. Not really to my taste.
Castle Rock Wheel of Fortune 4.6%, a dark red malty ale with both grapefruit and toffee flavours. Fortunately for me, the toffee seems to be the more dominant flavour
Brentwood Hope & Glory 4.5%, just a very nice malty best bitter. No more to say.

15 of 30 found / sampled.

Twelve Tellers, Preston (last night)
Salopian Hop Twister 4.5%, hoppy and fruity.
Titanic Iron Curtain 6.0%, at the bottom end of the ABV scale for a Russian Imperial Stout. Fruit and some sweetness possibly vanilla, quite bitter. No quite what I hoped for.

17 of 30 found / sampled.
