Alton Beer Festival - 31st May 2008

Comments

This truly glorious spring (more like summer) day was just made for
going to a beer festival, so why disappoint yourself. Well,
unfortunately, Ron did, as he was none too well. Kev also arrived
very late due to car troubles of some sort, which disappointed his
old friend, John Colville, helping out on the door.
Even Mike from B&T was in a relaxed mood. As the brewery had won beer
of the festival at the winter event with Golden Fox he was not
pressing for a vote this time, despite, in some sampler’s opinions,
the Black Dragon Mild being one of the better beers tried.
The ‘RAT’ was running that evening and even though the beer carriage
was waiting at Alton station, the temptation to board was avoided and
the more usual culmination of a visit to the Railway Arms ensued.

The following beer list was the selection tried by PV.

Brewery           Beer              %
Bank’s & Hanson’s Original Mild    3.5
Banks & Taylor    Black Dagon Mild 4.3
Banks & Taylor    Dragonslayer     4.5
Banks & Taylor    Golden Fox       4.1
Bowman            Swift One        3.8
Dark Star         Sunburst         4.8
Flowerpots        Pot Black Mild   3.2
Hampshire         Pink Elephant    5.4
Hepworth          Blonde           5.0
Hop Back          GFB              3.5
Potton            Village Bike     4.3
Saffron           Saffron Blonde   4.3
Skinner’s         Keel Over        4.2
Yeovil Ales       Star Gazer       4.0
