Currently reinstating the brewing plant at the rear of the pub and hope to have a new beer available by the end of May. All the beers on were in very good condition and we particularly liked the Hampshire Strongs Best Bitter. Lets hope their own beers are as good.

Brewer        Beer                 %  Price Mark Comment
Hampshire     Strongs Best Bitter 3.8 £2.50  4   Do you remember the taste?
Itchin Valley Winchester Ale      4.2 £2.50  4   Not as sharp as their other beers
Hogs Back     TEA                 4.2 £2.50  4   Did the brewery proud


Lobster Pot - Upper Hale - SU846488

Comment
Now more of a restaurant than a pub it was very quiet on this Wednesday evening. The beers were so cold it was difficult to tell which one you were drinking as it had so little taste. Better when they had warmed up a bit.

Brewer    Beer          %  Price Mark Comment
Fuller’s  London Pride 4.1 £2.75  2   Eventually got the taste
Hogs Back TEA          4.2 £2.65  2   Did not do the brewery proud


Garden Gate - Aldershot - SU864500

Comment
As always a warm welcome in this friendly local. Greene King’s attempt at a straw bitter, Triumph, clearly isn’t. As normal, all the beers were well kept.

Brewer      Beer     %  Price Mark Comment
Greene King IPA     3.7 £2.50  3.5 Good session beer
Greene King Abbot   4.8 £2.60      Not Tried
Greene King Triumph 4.3 £2.60  3.5 Not their best offering
