Monday evening post-work, pre-Sainsbury’s visit. I lead such a mundane life. As others have observed, guest beers are now priced according to strength in here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Liverpool Craft - Mørk 4.80ExcellentA black Oatmeal Stout with a big brown head. Very tasty, although dry for the style.
Big Hand - Bastion Best Bitter4.20GoodA chestnut-coloured, top quality, regular Bitter. There is not enough of this sort of stuff around.

Mid evening and very quiet, just a couple of groups finishing off their drinks as a power failure had caused the pub to close early. I remarked to the staff the subdued emergency lighting improved the atmosphere 100%!

Early evening. As always using this pub as my Cape Canaveral for a launchpad into Kent by high-speed train.

Siren Craft - Broken Dream Breakfast Stout6.50ExcellentHas TE's pricing policy changed, thought guests were not usually as highly priced as £4.90 pp. Superb beer though

A quiet Monday evening session with Ray and Terry, until they rushed off for a Quiz League fixture at the Black Bull in Stratford.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Sequoia4.50ExcellentA really nice, tasty, US-style Amber.
Burning Sky - Plateau3.50ExcellentA reliably excellent, pale, hoppy thing.
Tap East - IPA6.00ExcellentA fresh brew and absolutely lush.
Bristol Beer Factory - Enigma4.40GoodI had muddled this with Kent Brewery’s Black IPA of the same name, so was surprised to find a red/brown beer in my glass. “Unexpected Item in Bagging Area”, as they say. Nice though, a tasty, mellow US-style Red.
