Comment
Busy friendly local. Pity the beer quality was only average else the pub would be recommended for a visit.

Brewer      Beer   %  Price Mark Comment
Greene King IPA   3.6 £2.55 2.5  Just about average
Greene King Abbot 5.0 £2.85 2.5  More of a priest than an Abbot


Queens Head - Aldershot - SU 879 504

Comment
Busy night with Texas Hold ‘Em the draw. After the normally good reviews the Deuchars was disappointing.

Brewer     Beer          %  Price Mark Comment
Caledonian Deuchars IPA 3.8 £2.60 2.5  Somewhat tart
Fuller’s   London Pride 4.1 £2.60 2.5  Somewhat average


Red Lion - Aldershot - SU 874 500

Comment
No longer the cornucopia of choice it once was. The Archers Special
as sharp when it should be nice and smooth. 
Some returned as unacceptable at which stage it was taken off.

Comment
At last, a pub where beer quality is important and the GK IPA and Belhaven 
Fruit Beer lived up to expectations. Unfortunately the GK Ale Fresco did not- it was 
on its way out and should not have been served.
Would have been handed back if the drinker concerned hadn’t been scarred of the landlady!

Brewer      Beer        %  Price Mark Comment
Greene King IPA        3.6 £2.50  4   Top form
Greene King Ale Fresco 4.3 £2.60  1   Awful
Greene King Abbot      5.0 £2.60      Not tried
Belhaven    Fruit Beer 4.6 £2.60  4   Does exactly what it says on the pump clip

This evenings drinking ranks as one of the worst for beer quality for some time. 
Even some usually reliable outlets let us down. 
But don’t let on to ROC!
