Cask at Argyll Arms. Pours light amber with a soft white head. Grassy hop aroma. Wonderfully bitter flavor with earth and pine, preceded by an understated caramel malt presence. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Has a long grass and earth bitter finish. Very good.

Cask handpull at Samuel Peto, JDW, Folkestone. Copper colour, thin beige head. Quite hoppy yes, very hoppy for a UK beer. I like the hops plus there is some sweetish toffee too. Really good earthy hop on finish

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Eastgate Northampton. A golden beer with an off-white loose head. A sweetish citrus aroma; maybe oranges leads to a citrus tingle in the mouth. Good body and good depth of hoppy flavours. Good bitterness and very tasty. Excellent hop melange.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Felix Holt, Nuneaton. Bright dusty gold with a slim nitro-like smother of head. Punching fresh breakfast juice hop with grapefruit to the fore, some deep husky nut reinforcement, dabs of vanilla totally out-muscled by alpha soapiness. Good sweaty mandarin hops on the nose. Slick and filmy, good fresh character with balance, tipping heavily in favour of The Hop. I like it. Beer of the Festival so far for me.
