Nice after work session, lots of ale being drunk and many beer changes 👍
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - She Sells Sea Shells4.70Excellent
Mighty Oak - Captain Bob3.80ExcellentLoved this, such a refreshing change to have a beer with such a heavy malt character that’s balanced well with dry hop notes. In an age of over hoppy beers this was an excellent pint of proper bitter.
Silver Brewhouse (formerly Raw) - Independence American Pale Ale4.10ExcellentWonderful zesty pint and well balanced unlike similar beers of this style.
Wensleydale - Black Dub Stout4.40GoodVery nice stout with hints of coffee
