A quiet early evening in this very pleasant pub.

Arbor Ales - Sean of the Red5.10ExcellentHazy red/brown. A nice, US-style Red Ale. Initial taste is of caramel and then the hops work through.
Vibrant Forest - Citra5.00ExcellentWow. Absolutely no shortage of Citra hops in this one.
Redemption - Trinity3.00Not Tried

We were guests at a friend's retirement do at 4pm however we arrived an hour earlier and secured a table for 5 of us which we had to vacate at 7pm for a reservation. Fairly quiet upon arrival however this soon become standing room only as expected for a Friday evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Redemption - Trinity3.00GoodRefreshing zesty and flavoursome for its ABV.
Vibrant Forest - Black Forest4.90AcceptableA break from Trinity I found this syrupy sickly black coffee gloop hard work.
Neepsend - Demeter 6.00Not TriedI'm unaware of any of us who sampled this.

Saturday afternoon and full but not uncomfortable. Beers are very reasonably priced for the area, unfortunately I forgot to note down the three real ales that were on offer.

Late afternoon- just 5 other customers in - a very nice feel to the place - a proper pub. One off my "wish list".
BeerABVScoreNotes
East London (ELB) - Foundation Bitter4.20GoodQuite similar to the Pig and Porter - and same ABV - but a little more hoppy flavour.
Pig & Porter - Pale Series Citra4.20GoodA very nice pale ale in good condition. This was labelled up as "pale series loungers and idlers ADHA527" which the barman could not shed a my light on. £3.50 with Camra discount - very good for this part of the country.

Early afternoon. We sat in the little courtyard at the rear as my friend does not like piped music,

Quiet mid afternoon, few in the sunshine and a few at the bar. Disappointing to find only 2 beers and when I asked for a traditional copper coloured bitter, I was told "we don't really sell bitter here"! Now I don't think she was correct, but I know what she meant!

Redemption - Trinity3.00GoodFor its gravity, a good taste. Served a little too cold.

Early evening visit. No home-brewed beers available tonight so I take an executive decision not to count this visit as part of my quest to visit as many London breweries/taps in 2017 as possible.
