    I had 2 of them recently and thought they were very good.

    A paltry week but the Spoons cider festival is gone now , It would have been just one beer but for a trip to the Whyteleafe Radius Arms, a doomed Spoons and the Goorge in Croydon

    Oakham Inferno 4.0%
    Windsor & Eton Corker 4.0%
    Frensham Forager 4.5%
    Nottingham Dreadnought 4.5%
    Dorking Ceres 4.6%
    Inveralmond Rascal London Porter 5.6%
    Oakham Tranquility IPA 6.5%

    My favourite of these was the Windsor & Eton Corker for £3.20 at the Radius Arms which they describe as a Summer Bitter. It looked like a boring brown beer but had a great hop flavour. The two Oakham beers were easily the best of the rest.
    The final Spoons cider of the week was Perry's Somerset Redstreak Cider
    Sadly the General was the only one to elude me.

    Quiet week for me, with nothing to get too excited about.

    Leeds - Pale.
    Collingham - Blonde.
    Thornbridge - Brother Rabbit.
    Redwillow - Headless.
    Brass Castle - Loco.

    Pick of the bunch was the Headless, a decent, sessionable pale ale.

    Like you, I was very surprised the first time I tried it, but have to admit I'm now a bit of a fan. Just shows the big breweries can get it right, sometimes.
