Lunchtime catchup with a couple of old school friends. We talked about the old days and current medical conditions. One had some old school mags proving that I won the pole vault in 1972, I don’t think there were many kids that could do it on a fixed pole landing on very hard sand! Pub looks to be doing a reasonable trade these days. Very friendly.

Late afternoon. Just the two of us in. The landlord was a bit overpowering - especially in bigging up his full tie to Punch Taverns. £4 a pint tells it own story after the bargains in a couple of Thanet’s micros.
Oakham - Citra4.20ExcellentAs expected - and in fine condition.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried

Pretty quiet mid afternoon but filling up when we left at about 5. Three beers on now. Taking shape under the new manager.
Adnams - Mosaic Pale Ale4.10ExcellentReally very good.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedWaiting for this to be replaced by something interesting
Oakham - Citra4.20Not TriedCame on as I was leaving

Arrived here at 11:15 after the drive from Brighton. It was of course closed, as it doesn't open until 12, but...the door was unlocked and the lights were on so we thought we'd try our luck. Luckily the new owner was more than happy to serve us (as it was really 12:15 by rights).
Adnams - Mosaic Pale Ale4.10ExceptionalWhen at it's best this is an exceptional beer. Consistently good in here. Easy drinking, fresh, lemony.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried

After Waitrose shop. Only ones in for a bit.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00AcceptableStill no Mosaic - it's in the cellar resting.

Turned up about 1sh, pretty empty and only one beer on. Apparently new owners take over next week.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00GoodThe Mosaic hadn't been delivered so it was a choice between this and Thatcher's cider. Decided on this and... really not bad, good condition, good temperature, but bog standard ubiquitous brown bitter.

Adnams - Mosaic Pale Ale4.10ExcellentSuperb condition, far exceeded my expectations here.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedGreat to see this in Canterbury

Closed. Sign on the door says that new owners take over next week. Hope they still do the Mosaic.
