Nethergate (was Nethergate Growler for a while then name reverted) - IPA3.60ExceptionalBeer of the day for me, a pale hoppy bitter with a crispness backed up by an east anglian malt.
Nethergate (was Nethergate Growler for a while then name reverted) - Suffolk County Best Bitter4.00ExcellentA dark, almost ruby best bitter. perhaps a little sweet and cloying for me.Too well balanced?
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried
Oulton Ales - Orange Wheat Beer4.20Not TriedThis was on stillage behind the bar.As a wheat grower I was tempted, but resisted.The pub also stocked various ciders and perries.
