Oh dear, another pub, another paucity of notes. BRAPA would be ashamed.
Anyway, I’ll make it up, as we approach the first of a trio of classic revisits.
My only note says “Less hoppy in the mouth than on the nose” which we can only hope was something Dick was saying about Sherbert Dip Dabs rather than his Bass. Leek is one of only 47 places in the UK you can buy the hopped version of Dip Dabs.
Here’s Dave and Dick contemplating the wonder of a 30th successive great English pub (OK, the one Mudgie took them in on Monday excepted).
I loved the casual pubbiness of the Earl Grey when it burst into the GBG; the mix of punters reminiscent of Cambridge’s Mill Road free houses.
A nice concise beer line-up, from which we all picked the hazy one from Pentrich.
Look how hazy it is.
I may have converted the Americans to the joys of hazy cask (NBSS 3.5) you know.
Anyway, a great way to sample crafty cask and keg on proper seating at good prices.
Just please, PLEASE, don’t stack your glasses.
