Saying we went out for a normal Friday night out is a bit of a stretch, as we have not been out on a Friday for about a month now. Trevor and Pat have been away on holiday, which meant three weeks not out, although it has meant that we were free to watch the Boro win for two weeks in a row in the premier division playoffs on TV.
Well this week we went out, we have been undecided which of the three pubs in Greatham to drink in over the last year or two but I have decided that the Hope and Anchor has the best beer at the moment. It sells Tetley's Imperial, which is far superior to anything the other two are selling and I will post a writ up at the end.
Young Ralph and Amber came with us, as Amber is up visiting for half term. Trevor and Pat had a very good Holiday and as usual we had four pints of Imperial. We used to have up to six pints a couple of years back but that's long gone now.
Tetley's, Imperial from England
4.3% dark brown with a good head, roast malt aroma and a fruity roast malt taste, this beer is a lot better than other reviewers argue and I like it, allot. From what I can read, Tetley's Imperial is apparently now brewed by Camerons of Hartlepool, our home town brewery.
