This pub reopened today after the Coronavirus Lockdown. As one of their very last customers in March I thought it would be good to be one of the first on re-opening. I sat outside and got doused in cigarette smoke.
Yonder - Raspberry Gose4.00ExcellentFrom keg. Lovely on a summer evening, although not very beer-like.
Polly's - Stop & Stare4.80ExcellentFrom key-keg. Intense hop flavours. Dry, earthy and piney.

Three Hills - Hops Don't Grow on Trees4.80ExcellentFrom key-keg. Very tasty.

Another very quiet evening in here.
North - Baltic Porter with Cherries7.00ExcellentFrom a keg. Thick, strong and with a good cherry flavour.
Drop Project - Overhead6.80ExcellentFrom keg. A bitter, resinous and citrusy IPA from south London.
Beerbliotek - Woke Up Woke This Morning6.50GoodFrom a keg. A strong Gose with slight sourness and a lot of tropical fruit.

Very quiet in here tonight - where is everybody?
Donzoko - Step Two IPA6.00GoodFrom some form of keggery. Hazy gold. Both juicy and bitter, but also has a very slight metallic taint.

I moved on to here when Tap East became very busy.
Chorlton - Sarsaparilla Sour 5.00ExcellentFrom keg. I think Sarsaparilla might be anew beer flavouring for me. It works very well in a sour - almost five stars.
Burnt Mill - Rosetta Cone6.80ExcellentFrom key-keg. A full-on, hoppy Pale. Bittersweet.

Office party drinkers alert.
Deya - Break Me Into Bigger Pieces6.50ExcellentFrom keg. A lemon and lime flavoured IPA. Very zesty.
Odyssey - Bigger and Bolder6.00ExcellentFrom keg. Strong and juicy.

Thursday evening and busy here. A bit rainy and a bit chilly tonight, so everyone is sitting inside.
Kernel (The Kernel) - Biere de Saison Finchcocks #75.30ExcellentFrom a keg. Clear gold. Dry. Very pleasant drinking, lightly hoppy and quite tart.
Pressure Drop - Fashion6.50ExcellentFrom key-keg. A full-bodied, dry and quite stout Porter.
Night Shift - MUP6.00GoodFrom keg dispense. Thick and gloopy with a pulped fruit taste.

Another wet Monday evening, yet this time it's quite busy in here.
Three Hills - BRAVK: Marshmallow10.00ExceptionalKeg of some kind. A massive, sweet, viscous Imperial Stout. Caramel.
Kernel (The Kernel) - Pale Ale - Centennial Zeus5.40ExcellentFrom key-keg. I don't order The Kernel beers often enough. This was superb.

With heavy rain falling outside, there are just three of us here when I arrive. Me, myself and I.
Hop Hooligans - Melon Party7.00ExcellentOn some kind of keg. A current favourite brewery. This is a strong, thick, hoppy IPA, heavily flavoured with rhubarb and melon.
