Titanic - Plum Porter4.90GoodSomehow a little less cloying than yesterday
Bad Seed - Shakedown4.60GoodA sweetish APA, accepted as hazy as is unfined, lacked as much carbonation as would make it more palatable. Tasty

BeerABVScoreNotes
Siren Craft - Suspended in Bravo4.00GoodBravo, Citra, Ekuanot and Centennial hops. A murky pineapple amoothie scrumpy in looks. Becoming a boring style from Siren, added some lemonade to end the chore of finishing it

The pub is found in New Cross, Greater London, SE14 6TJ.

Located in New Cross Road it could be in Deptford or New Cross. Almost universally described as the “best pub in the area” the Royal Albert has massively improved since its 2007 reversion to its proper name, after a time as the Paradise Bar, and reversion to proper pub values. Has a pubby space at the front and more of a dining room feel towards the rear, where there is an open view kitchen. Very handy for Deptford Bridge DLR or New Cross stations. Sports 8 handpumps, one of which regularly carries a cider.

We have visited this pub 170 times, seen 424 different beers and tried 212 of them.
