Finalists line up to be London Ale Taster
A short-list of candidates is set to compete for the ancient position of London Ale Taster at an event at Old Spitalfields Market on Wednesday (June 9). It will be part of a free event open to the public, taking place at 1pm. Finalists will have to correctly identify unmarked samples of different ales and match them to a list, including a round dedicated to porter, and make presentations to the judging panel of beer specialists. Coinciding with a special "beer market" from 9am to 3pm, it is planned that the selection of London Ale Taster will become an annual event.
