DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2010
Post-festival pint at some Spoons in Reading. Filmy orange with a fine white slick. Thistle, boiled sweets, faint frangipane aroma. Wet dough, damp spiced apple, Lockets, horse food, honey, dandelion. No hop whatsoever. Nothing technically wrong, but more boring than a pint of water.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2010
Cask at Pilgrim’s Progress (JDW), Bedford, in Spoons Real Ale Festival ’10. Bright copper colour and a lively white head. Beautiful sweet fruity aroma: peach and pineapple perhaps. Sweet fruity taste with thick, delicious malt. Mid bitter finish. I thought this was excellent, and near the Best of the Festival for me.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A light amber coloured beer with a slim whitish head. A perfectly quaffable earthy beer which is instantly forgettable. Nowt wrong with it, just ordinary.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Crosse Keys.
Very slightly hazy golden brown with a decent white head and lace. Good hoppy snout full of challenger and even more so on the fuggles. Sadly the flavour, although nicely hopped is let down by something distinctly pondwatery. Decent citric hop finish with some late biscuit malt helps it out, but not quite enough.
