The rather wonderful "Real ale finder" app pinged and said Goachers Dark had just come on at the Just Reproach - so we headed back. Pub number 9 and our last of the day. Busier than before so we had to stand.
Goacher's - Best Dark Ale (aka Original)4.10GoodFresh on. Be cracking tomorrow I should think.

Lynnes sons birthday so its proceccos on the beach with cake. The sun shone but we froze with the wicked breeze. 4 beers on and a full pub full of chatty characters. Unusual beers today all at £3.90 a pint.
Oakham - Echo Cask Aged5.00GoodBrown beer but full of what was described as different hops. The beer didn't work for me though perfectly adequate.
Tiny Rebel - Oh Apricot4.60GoodDescribed as an apricot milkshake but it was for the ladies who enjoyed it not me. In good condition though.

I arrived 3 minutes before 17.00 opening the lights were on and the door unlocked as the barmaid was putting the final touches into place, friendly welcome and was soon joined by a couple of friends and by the time we left a couple of hours later it was standing room only.
Kent - Cobnut4.10ExcellentRoasted malts with a a strong nutty kick for this dark brown liquor..
Iron Pier - Wealdway IPA4.50ExcellentLight hoppy slight hints of citrus made for a refreshing pint.
Kent - Southern Cross4.80ExcellentA fruity pale ale hopped with some of the latest Tasmanian hop varieties.
Brew By Numbers - 11 Session IPA Mosaic3.80ExcellentA hazy smooth tropical fruits feast with hardly any harsh citrus intensity.

Early evening until close (which incidentally is 20.00) less busy than expected thus plenty of space so we took over the window seats and enjoyed our beers before heading off for a curry. I neglected to find out the significance of the TFL route 28 bus blind adorning the wall.
Oakham - Bishops Farewell4.60ExcellentFruity rich and smooth golden pale ale
Angels & Demons (now uses McCanns branding not its own) - Bombay Social3.80ExcellentHints of pepper, spice and hops with a dry finish for this cleverly recipied complex ale.
Kent - Pale4.00GoodFull flavoured and aromatic pale ale
