Mid-evening, mostly standing outside with pint in hand making a long ‘phone call.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wilde Child - Beyond Redemption4.00ExcellentA completely mad beer. Another beer / milkshake crossover. This one tastes of pineapple. I had to have two to be sure I wasn’t imagining it.

A mid-evening visit after work.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tap East - A.P.A. (American Pale Ale) 4.30ExcellentA reliably excellent pint.
Alphabet - Llamaland Strawberry5.00GoodFrom keg or key-keg. A hazy reddish/gold. Shockingly sour initial hit, then full of strawberry.
Stone - Little Bastard4.70AcceptableFrom the keg taps. Cold and fizzy and, to be honest, a bit ordinary.
