A couple of early evening beers with Terry and Ray before they dash off for a quiz fixture at the Black Bull in Stratford.

Tap East - A.P.A. (American Pale Ale) 4.30ExcellentOn very good form tonight.
Vocation - Chop & Change Calypso 4.50ExcellentWe drank this not knowing the hop variety as the label on the cask had gone missing. Very grapefruity indeed. It turned out to be Calypso.
Brasserie d'Achouffe - Chouffe Soleil 6.00ExcellentFrom a keg and nothing like any Chouffe beer I have drunk before. It is pale gold, hazy, and very sharply hoppy.

Here in the early evening with a group of friends after having watched football in Dagenham but having baulked at the prospect of using any Dagenham pubs.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - Tonic Ale3.00ExcellentI’m not sure what hops are going into this beer these days (it has a varying recipe), but whatever they are they are delicious.
Tap East - IPA6.00ExcellentOne of my favourites.
Tap East - Red Rye5.00GoodBrewed to 4.2% this time around. A hazy, reddish-brown beer with tangy fruit and spicy rye.

Central London has been a ghost town today and I stop off here on the way home from work thinking that Stratford shops must be where everyone is hiding. But it is unusually quiet here too.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - IPA6.00ExcellentI’m in the mood for some strong beer and this hits the nail on the head.
Titanic - Plum Porter Grand Reserve6.50ExcellentDark, fruity and warming.

Mid-evening visit after a day out in Maidstone. There has been football at the Olympic Stadium, meaning that it is plastic cups and bouncers on the door here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - Tonic Ale3.00ExcellentEnjoyable, light, hoppy pint.
Tiny Rebel - Chocolate Stay Puft5.20AcceptablePlenty of chocolate, but way, way too sweet for my taste buds.

Early to mid-evening. Peak Christmas shopping season and it is busy in here throughout.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Brew York - Fairytale of Brew York 4.70ExcellentBlack, sweet. Chocolaty and nutty (of the pistachio variety). Very nice. This brewery seemingly can do no wrong.
Wiper and True - Peel & Stone6.20ExcellentFrom a keg of some kind and initially a bit too chilled. This is a strong and mellow, golden IPA.
Track - Mosaic Eater4.40ExcellentParadise for Mosaic hops fans such as myself.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Bristol Beer Factory - Southville Hop6.50ExcellentA good, crisp, strongish, citrusy IPA.
Harbour - Kernowfornia 4.80ExcellentA ‘California Common’ – not a beer style with which I have much familiarity. Pleasingly light and smooth and hoppy.
Ilkley - Mary Christmas4.70AcceptableA dark Bitter; quite heavily-spiced. I thought I was tasting cloves and nutmeg. Not much to my liking to be honest.

Unusually busy here for a Monday evening. I think it may have been fulfilling its ‘man crèche’ role during peak Christmas shopping season.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Alechemy - Charisma3.70ExcellentAnother tasty, pale beer.
Redwell - Extra Pale Ale4.60ExcellentLight of colour but full of flavour. Good to see Redwell in cask.

Late evening and busy as expected. Usual clinical operating theatre, mortuary or dentist surgery atmosphere. Take your pick.

Quite late in the evening. Pleased to find some of the pub’s anniversary specials still available, having missed the birthday party whilst on holiday.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - Brewery Birthday 60 Shilling Scotch Ale 3.00AcceptableDark brown with a creamy head. A lightweight Scottish-style Mild. Authentically inoffensive.
Tap East - Wit4.50AcceptableFrom a keg of some sort. Hazy, pale, cold and fizzy. An unspectacular Witbier.
Tap East - Gingerbread Stout5.50AcceptableFrom key-keg. A somewhat flat pint with no head. Black. Lots of ginger flavour but a bit lacking in Ooomph – not sure if that was just an effect of the lack of condition.

A quick visit on the way home.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Salopian - Mixed Metaphor4.50ExcellentA heavy duty black beer with a brown head. Very well-hopped. Somewhere between a Black IPA and a Stout I think.
