Cloudwater Brew Co. by DIPA Enigma

Oliver C. is drinking a DIPA Enigma by Cloudwater Brew Co. at Glastonbury

A bit clearer than their previous beers have been. Nice thick body still. Maybe a little more savoury too, but with redcurrant flavour.

BrewDog by Clockwork Tangerine

Oliver C. is drinking a Clockwork Tangerine by BrewDog at Glastonbury

Wasn't my favourite from the prototype series, but I'm sold on this. So crushable as the cool kids say. Lots and lots of tangerine.

Torrside Brewing by I Am Curious Lemon

Oliver C. is drinking an I Am Curious Lemon by Torrside Brewing at Glastonbury

Perfect in the sunshine! More subtle and balanced than I expected. Some freshly squeezed lemon juice and warming black pepper at the end.

Beavertown by Do Not Open Until 1985

Oliver C. is drinking a Do Not Open Until 1985 by Beavertown at Glastonbury

Mind boggling that there is absolutely no presence of the 9% ABV! Aroma is very ripe tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, maybe some apricot.

Cloudwater Brew Co. by Small Citra Simcoe Pale

Oliver C. is drinking a Small Citra Simcoe Pale by Cloudwater Brew Co. at Glastonbury

It might be the sunshine, but think this is one of their best Small Pales yet. Such a smooth, thick body. Grapefruit, passionfruit and pine.

BrewDog by #MashTag 2015

Oliver C. is drinking a #MashTag 2015 by BrewDog at Glastonbury

Had this one in the cellar (box upstairs!) and thought I ought to open it. Hops have gone and left with spicy, peppery, licorice flavours.

Burton Bridge Brewery by Bramble Stout

Oliver C. is drinking a Bramble Stout by Burton Bridge Brewery at Glastonbury

Unusual beer. Quite a traditional, chocolatey stout underneath the very tart, fruity notes. Mainly elderberry and blackberry. Needs warming

Torrside Brewing by Time Capsule

Oliver C. is drinking a Time Capsule by Torrside Brewing at Glastonbury

These guys are masters of these high ABV beers! Rich, warming and boozy, just how a Barley Wine should be. Pine, jam and bready malts.

Twisted Barrel Ale by Beverly Crusher

Oliver C. is drinking a Beverly Crusher by Twisted Barrel Ale at Glastonbury

Really enjoyed this! Nice sweet orange aroma. Thick, sweet and juicy taste. Plenty of orange, but doesn't overwhelm or taste synthetic.

Torrside Brewing by Double Spartacus

Oliver C. is drinking a Double Spartacus by Torrside Brewing at Glastonbury

Last night. Outstanding! Loads of stewed fruits like apples and plums. Rich, thick marmalade. Toffee. Slow sipper, but so damn good.

Wild Card Brewery by Queen Of Diamonds

Oliver C. is drinking a Queen Of Diamonds by Wild Card Brewery at Glastonbury

Love these labels! More of a traditional IPA, but there's a lot going on in here and a lot to like. Lychee & grapefruit dominate as stated.

Lost And Grounded Brewers by This Is Nowhere

Oliver C. is drinking a This Is Nowhere by Lost And Grounded Brewers at Glastonbury

Very light and delicate. Bread dough, hay and some grass. Little bit of fruitiness towards the finish. Smooth and sweet.

Mad Hatter Brewing Company by Tricky Flamingo

Oliver C. is drinking a Tricky Flamingo by Mad Hatter Brewing Company at Glastonbury

I like this. Raspberries are present, yet not overpowering. Provide interest and some sweetness. Dry finish, plenty of bitterness.

Marble Beers by Gale's Prize Old Ale Barbera Barrel Aged

Forgot I had this! Lovely dark fruits in the aroma and taste. Raisins and prunes, some dark cherries. Woody, but not overly tannic.

Northern Monk by Patrons Project 8.03 // DDH Lager Loral

Oliver C. is drinking a Patrons Project 8.03 // DDH Lager Loral by Northern Monk at Glastonbury

Beautiful lager. Needs pouring carefully to avoid the sediment. Floral and peppery, with this lovely citrus flavour running through it.
