On the way home from work and quiet enough at 7:30 to bag one of the comfy seats.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Arbor Ales - SMAC in Black5.80ExcellentA citrus fruity, roasty, sticky Black IPA.
Mornington Peninsular - Sorachi5.20ExcellentOn keg dispense. Described as a Kőlsch, but not much like anything I remember drinking back when I used to visit Cologne. Pale and cloudy. Lovely lemony-sherbet flavours from the hops.

A quick pint after getting the bullet train back to Stratford from Ashford. I tried one of the pub’s new range of bar snacks, which was pricey and spicy.
BeerABVScoreNotes

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.
