For the curious and for the record,
we hoped to get these beers but they were unavailable.
- Badger (Blandford St Mary, Dorset) 1777
- Blandford Fly (5.2%)
- A light-coloured medium-bodied ale with a low bitterness and a
subtle spicy ginger character that warms the drink even when chilled.
- Buntingford (Buntingford, Hertfordshire) 2001
- Herfordshire Gold (4.5%)
- A distinctive beer containing English and U.S. hops and
lager and ale malts, which give a slightly crisp flavour.
- Fenland (Chatteris, Cambridgeshire) 1997
- Sparkling Wit (4.5%)
- Traditional "white" beer, recalling the days when hops were
complemented by exotic spices - Coriander and Grains of Paradise. This
refreshing yet smooth ale is brewed with barley, oat and wheat malts and laced
with locally-produced honey to give a wonderfully refreshing thirst-quencher.
- Guernsey (St Peter Port) 1856
- Braye Mild (3.8%)
- Sunbeam (4.2%)
- Palmers (Bridport, Dorset) 1794
- Bridport Bitter (3.2%)
- A light beer with a hoppy aroma, a bitter hoppy taste with
some malt, and a bitter aftertaste.
- IPA (4.2%)
- A deep copper beer that is hoppy and bitter throughout. Fruit and
malt undertones give some balance in the aroma and taste, and there is a
lingering bitter aftertaste.
