Lunchtime and a good crowd in what used to be the Public Bar. The main topic of conversation seemed to be about whether water softeners work or not.

We used the right hand bar as the other one was absolutely full. A good atmosphere, and despite being busy, the service was very good.

14:00 visit. A beer festival on today in this lovely old back street local. Lots of ales on and a good crowd out in the garden area listening to the live (and loud) band. Amazingly, the pub is surrounded by many small houses!

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Festiv'Ale3.80ExcellentVery tasty so gave it a 4* even though it's just under 4%.

Quiet lunchtime session, with almost all the customers in the small Public Bar. My first visit here and it seems a very nice pub Ill forgive them the one iffy pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Hopdaemon - Golden Braid3.70ExcellentA golden, hoppy, well-carbonated and refreshing pint.
Kent - Pale4.00PoorI know and like this beer, but this was not at all right. A nice pale colour, but a bit flat and a bit thin and the hopping struggling to shine through. And, oh dear, is that a faint whiff of acetic acid? Too long in the pipes perhaps. I would have returned it had I been on home territory.

Quiet sunny Saturday. A few people in the real ale bar (where the pumps are).
BeerABVScoreNotes
Franklins - TEA4.20GoodI was bit puzzled here. It said Golden Ale on the pump clip but came up brown and bitter coloured and tasted like bitter. A bit confusing like the Yorkshire Brewery now brewed in Sussex bit also on the pump clip.
Wantsum - Imperium4.00AcceptableI have not had this beer before and it tasted as if it was getting near the end of the barrel.

Bank hol Monday lunchtime. Enjoyable cycle ride from Ashford and some new beers on. Funny out of all the pubs holding beer festivals this weekend this is the one I most want to come to. A real testament to the owners and locals.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Black Cat - Original4.20ExcellentCask handpull. Clear amber colour lasting near white head. Beautiful lacing. Great condition. Great after a long cycle ride. Biscuit and herby hop aroma. Beautiful condition. Some bite on finish. As a brown bitter its good. Looking forward to the next beers. Touch of tea perhaps.
Hopdaemon - Green Daemon5.00GoodNot many cask conditioned lagers in the world. This is good what can I say?
Canterbury Ales (sometimes badged as Canterbrew) - The Reeve's Ale4.10GoodAlways thought of this as a brown ale as it is so malty. Just a little lacking in mouthfeel fullness but then I am super critical of condition. Good malty flavour though
Old Dairy - Spring Top4.00GoodHuge thanks to Henry for the cellar run. Mid brown beer. Toasted brown malt aroma. Fantastic in the mouth. Slight green apple hop on finish. I do like this bitter a lot. Some yeast character on aroma.
Westerham - Rob's Virtuous Ale4.00GoodProper brown brown ale with some juicy American hops. Lovely

Larkins - Traditional3.40GoodMy favourite 3.4% abv beer in the world. Surprisingly full in the mouth and bitter on the finish
Old Dairy - Sun Top3.60GoodVery light golden beer but in cracking condition. Mouthfeel is almost worth the beer in itself

Extremely busy, we sat in the right hand side bar as there was no room in the other one.

Tonbridge - Ebony Moon4.20ExceptionalWow, this was amazing. The landlord described it as a mild, but it was definitely a porter. A superb good quality dark full bodied beer.
