Royal Staff - Aldershot - SU873505

Comment
Another year, another Champions League final involving an ‘English’ club. Arrived this time with the better news that Arsenal were one nil in front against Barcelona. Pub quite busy with the football on the big screen, notwithstanding the high prices!

Brewer	Beer            %  Price Mark Comment
Fuller’s London Pride   4.1 £2.80  3   Somewhat chilly
Gales    Festival Mild  4.8 £2.80  3   Nice and black


Red Lion - Aldershot - SU874500

Comment
The football crowd, in buoyant mood when we arrived, calmed down when Barcelona equalized and became very quiet when they went on to win 2-1. Still the beers were in good form even if Arsenal were not.

A very somber mood greeted our arrival as the Gunners’ cried into their drinks. Never mind the IPA was in fine form.
