There seems to be about four of these newish small bars in Billingham, this is the third one we visited and it is the oldest one. The Green Hops had been open for a couple of years now, I just never got around to visiting it before.
First we visited the one from last week, The Porky Pint but they had no new beers, although last night they did.
Timothy Taylor's, Knowle Spring from England
4.2% gold in colour with a nice head, slightly fruity aroma and a nice not too hoppy taste.
The new beer I got in the The Green Hops was
Sharp's, Sea Fury from England
5.0% amber in colour with a good head, malty aroma and a slightly sweet nice taste.
