Late evening visit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Freewheel3.60AcceptableTasted to me as if it was on the way as it was very sharp and not how described by Adnams as "aromas of citrus and peaches, beautifully balanced by a touch of gooseberry ..."
Goacher's - Best Dark Ale (aka Original)4.10UndrinkableSharp taste and whiff of acetics. Swapped with good grace but was disappointed to see it still sold to others

Early evening and busy around the bar area but quiet further back.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ripple Steam - Green Hopped IPA4.50GoodRather bland with an earthy taste and nose
Romney Marsh - Amber Ale4.40GoodFruity punchy medicinal flavours although rather flat possibly towards the end of the barrel.
