Went to the Peterboat (Leigh-on-Sea, a couple of miles inland on the Thames Estuary from Southend) yesterday. They had a big tent set up and were doing a mini beer festival fora few days (first day yesterday). You could try-before-you-buy which was handy as I didn’t care for many of the 40 or so offerings. I’m not sure why people think beer should taste of lemons or oranges – I’d rather it tasted of beer. I don’tmind a hint of this or that but some of them are so overpowering I don’t think you’d know it was beer if you had a blindfold on. A lot of them are so over-hopped as well, not pleasant to drink. I’m all for variety and small/micro-berewers (some great ones in Essex and especially Kent) but a lot of stuff getting produced now is borderline undrinkable for me.
