I've managed to escape the Great British Beer Festival having sampled only six different glasses of stuff.
Kelburn's Red Smiddy
. This was the brewery we had at the Glasgow Worldcon and Eastercon. A nice pint.
Oakham's Bishops Farewell
. Pale. Didn't like it much. Drank it anyway.
Delvin End's Smiling Moose
. A cider, quite dry, 7%. Nice. From Essex.
At this point I took a bit of a break. I had a pork and pickle pie from crustypie.co.uk (mmm, pie) and a random selection of olives from "Olives and Things". Back to the alcohol.
Hobsons' Town Crier
. Darker than the Oakham: "straw-coloured". Not bad, but not a first choice.
, from Gloucestershire, another Cider/Perry.
. I'd already decided I'd had enough, and then I won a beer token in a tombola. This was the result: another "summer beer", quite light, but not as offensive as "Bishops Farewell", passim.
I don't think I have a career as a beer critic waiting for me.
It's worth mentioning that I bumped into several Tun attendees including ½r, and suaveswede
