Just back from nearly a fortnight down south in Devon, with stop offs in Tewkesbury and Stratford-upon-Avon but that must have covered at least a dozen new beers. So that will follow when I get them sorted, for now I will continue with my visits to the new micro bubs in Billingham.
It was late on Sunday afternoon and we had had nothing to eat since breakfast (we had been visiting family) but we still made for one of the new pubs the The Porky Pint. When we got in there they were serving food, small snacks (or not so small), Hot Pork, Turkey and Beef buns, also pigs in blankets and roast potatoes. We had slow cooked beef with roast potatoes and gravy and we got plenty, excellent. Now for the beers.
Purple Moose, Dark Side Of The Moose / Ochr Dywyll Y Mws from Wales
4.6% dark brown with a thin head, roast malt aroma, slightly bitter roast malt taste, had this one before.
Timothy Taylor's, Ram Tam from England
4.3% black in colour with a good head, it had a nice aroma and a smooth bitter taste.
Roundhill Brewery, BPA (Billingham Pale Ale) from England
5.2% gold in colour with a nice head, hoppy aroma and taste, not the best of theirs.
