Got in just before last orders. Landlord was a little stroppy, put a dampener on my visit.

A smattering of locals, I think this place really starts to pick up quite late in the evening. Landlord gave us our first ever try of sake, jolly nice of him.

Dark Star - Hophead (some, if not all, also brewed by Fuller's)3.80Excellenthophead doesn't seem the same beer it was a couple of years back. Still an great pint but not as good.

I had heard rumblings that the DJ Adamski that had hits in the early 90's was playing a set in here so myself and a friend decided to investigate. The rumour turned out to be true and we had one of the more bizarre but enjoyable nights out in Thanet in recent memory.

This pub reopened under new ownership a couple of months back but this is the first chance I've had to check it out. Used to drink here a lot years ago, it's a completely different pub now even the bar has changed sides. Nice and busy with a city kind of vibe to it, I really like what they've done with the place.

Dark Star - American Pale Ale (some, if not all, also brewed by Fuller's)4.70ExcellentThis beer hasn't tasted as good as this in years, very hoppy and in gorgeous condition.

First stop on a miniature crawl round ramsgate. Quite lively, shame they're not being that adventurous on the ale front though.

Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30AcceptableNot a great pint of landlord, but did the job just about. Had the usual malty, creamy flavours but then there was a harsh aftertaste that's not normally there.

Fairly quiet, but hasn't been long since it re-opened so it will take a while for trade to grow. A friend of mine is the new licensee and she's committed to having a good range of ales. So far so good.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30ExcellentAmber coloured with a soft, crisp taste. Top session beer.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 35.00ExcellentBest pint I've had of this, smooth and refreshing.
