Stout & Oyster Festival in progress in this smart brew-pub. I steered clear of the slippery molluscs, but enjoyed a couple of stouts. Pub appears much more drinker-friendly than on my last visit when I felt a little uncomfortable as a non-diner. The first ever cask beer from Weird Beard Brewery remained in the cellar and untried by me.
London Brewing Co. - Crema4.60ExcellentA smooth, oatmeal stout. Slight sweetness, but also a bitter, coffee bean taste.
Partizan - Foreign Export Stout8.60ExcellentOn keg dispense, and wallet-emptyingly expensive. Partizan’s first beer not to be sold in a bottle – let’s hope they progress to cask-conditioning. This was a huge and lush, black stout. Bit of toast, fruit & nuts, coffee. Slight fizz detracted.
London Brewing Co. - Highrise3.90GoodVery pale gold, dry, plenty of lemony/citrusy hops.

Fairly quiet early evening on a Thursday.
London Brewing Co. - Admirable Admiral4.20PoorPale bitter with an extreme hop bitterness that is beyond my taste threshold. No balance of flavours with a very bitter aftertaste. Definitely not to my taste. My score 11/20.

Fairly quiet on a Saturday lunchtime, but the phone was continually buzzing with bookings for Sunday lunch.
London Brewing Co. - Routemaster4.40ExcellentNot surprisingly a red ale with a good toffee malt character and fruity hoppiness. Not sickly and cloying like some red ales. My score 16/20.
London Brewing Co. - Highrise3.90AcceptablePale bitter quite highly hopped with a slightly smokey malt charcater. Rather dry in the finish. My score 14/20.

Quiet pre-lunchtime on a Saturday.
London Brewing Co. - Beer Street4.00AcceptablePale bitter with a crisp dry hop character giving quite a bitter taste to the beer. Fairly restrained maltiness giving a fairly short, dry, hoppy finish. My score 14/20. Unfortunately served too cold here so B for quality.
