Update: A couple of visits over the weekend allowed me to sample eleven of the Yorkshire selection at this popular and friendly fest. As I expected it was the York Ay-Up! (aka Nelson Sauvin) that stood out for me - a blockbusting hop-shock of an ale with it's aroma of cat-pee on privet and the astringency of a West Coast IPA - all at a remarkably manageable 4%abv. This was the first to run off, so it's not just me that finds this in your face style of beer appealing. Following closely behind was the excellent Yorkshire Rose, one of two brews from the Yorkshire Dales brewery to feature. Another very good effort from Mallinsons with their Headingley Long Hop completes my top three so far, 'cos with a couple of days and a handful of beers still to go it's not over yet!
If you did make it to the Green Cross this weekend don't forget to vote for your favourite beer on-line here.
The Green Cross will showcase up to fifteen beers from the Acorn Brewery of Barnsley for as long as they last, commencing Friday 12th September.
