Sampled by

VP, ROC, PV and KOC (is the whole UK on holiday?)

Windmill - Ewshot - SU 817 500

Comment
Night started with a bang as PV’s back tyre went. After that start
the pub proved an even more welcoming sight on this wet night. Beer
quality with the Breakspear’s Bitter and Well’s Bombardier was good
but the landlord has been having difficulties with the variable state
of the London Pride which even the Fuller’s rep has not been able to
sort out. As this is his ‘guest’ pump, is thinking of changing and
thought it would be a good idea to get a local ale in. Telephoned
both Hogs Back and Crondall breweries and left messages to contact
him but no response from either yet!

Brewer        Beer         %  Price Mark Comment
Breakspear    Bitter      3.4 £2.80  3   ROC was quite hoppy with this
Charles Wells Bombardier  4.3 £2.90  3   Enjoyable
Fuller’s     London Pride 4.1 £2.90  2   Something’s wrong here 


Royal Arms - Heath End - SU 849 497

Comment
Quiet night at the Arm’s made memorable by Arundel Sussex Mild. Quite
a spot on the Surrey/Hants border camera or no CAMRA. Hogs Back Hair
of the Hog was also very nice even if the new barrel was a trifle
green. Back to earth prices as well after the Windmill.

Brewer         Beer             %  Price Mark Comment~
Arundel        Sussex Mild     3.7 £2.40  3   Black is beautiful
Courage        Best            4.0 £2.40  3   As good as you get now
Fuller’s       London Pride    4.1 £2.60      Not tried 
Hogs Back      Hair of the Hog 3.5 £2.60 3.5  Trifle green but nice 

On to The Garden Gate for some while PV had to walk home.
