Barley Mow - The Sands - SU882463

Comment

Seemed a bit clicky. Going by the cars parked outside also full of
hairdressers. Hogs Back TEA went off as soon as we arrived and the
Greene King IPA was not on yet. Left us with Fuller’s London Pride or
a Foster’s top. Most went for the Pride.

Fuller’s London Pride 4.1 £2.65  3   Perfectly acceptable


Princess Royal - Runfold - SU863476

Comment

Friendly efficient service was received in this food-orientated
establishment. Unfortunately the Butser did not live up to the welcome. 
However the undrinkable pint was readily exchanged, which was nice.

Gales    Butser        3.4 £2.50  0   Oh dear
Gales    HSB           4.8 £2.70  3   Alright
Fuller’s London Pride  4.1 £2.60 2.5  Satisfactory
Fuller’s Discovery     3.9 £2.60  2   No taste whatsoever


Shepherd & Flock - Farnham - SU854474

Comment

As usual a good selection of beers were available. Somewhat
disgruntled to find half pints carry a 10p surcharge even when a pint
is exactly divisible by two and gives a round 10p result. The Hogs
Back Summer This was in great form but the Triple fff Summer is
cumin was not; in fact it was badly wrong.

Brewer      Beer               %  Price Mark Comment
Hogs Back   TEA               4.2 £2.60      Not tried
Hogs Back   Summer This       4.2 £2.60  3.5 Full of flavour
Grand Union Liberty Blonde    4.2 £2.60   3  Bland with some subtle twanginess
Slater’s    Top Totty         4.0 £2.60   3  Not top but quite nice totty
Black Sheep Best Bitter       3.8 £2.60   3  Very good session beer
Triple fff  Summer is Icumin  6.0 £2.80   0  End of barrel (so don’t serve it!)

Then back to The Garden Gate to find out why Ray had not made it to the starting line.
