Nick's Birthday 2009
Arrive around 7:30, but I expect to kick things off at 8 so don't come late or you'll miss some beer
Entertainment will be:
- Beer identification
- Musical links quiz
- Sausage identification
Please put your name and how much of what beer you are providing below. A description of it from a GBG or brewery website will make preparing the scoring sheets for the Beer Identification a lot easier.

Steve: Battledown Premium (approx 9 pints ) - "A medium bodied deep amber beer, with malt and fruit overtones and a balancing bitterness from the hops. ABV 4.6%"

Richard: Saltaire Blackberry Cascade (4 pints) American style pale ale made with Cascade and Centennial hops with a light infusion of blackberries. ABV 5%
Richard: Summer Wine Holmfirth IPA (4 pints) A copper coloured IPA with a full-bodied malt profile tempered with rich fruity hops that gives an intense fruity hop kick to a dry finish. ABV 4.2%

Simon: South Hams Eddystone (4 pints) A golden beer with a fruity, citrus aroma, and hints of Maris Otter malt. A not so bitter beer that uses cascade hops to deliver its character. A slightly dry, sweet finish. ABV 4.8%
Michael: O’Hanlons Port Stout (4 pints) Dark chestnut-brown colour with ruby highlights. Mocha coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of roasted malt on the nose, with whispers of vanilla, and soot. Palate: mocha coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and in the background the sweetness of the port, with a flash of hoppy pepperiness and a curranty fruitiness. Finish: dry, grainy, malty finish with a whisper of mocha and the return of the fruit. ABV 4.8%
