Bexleyheath Shopping Centre, Broadway Square, 6 Market Pl, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7DYMB and I decided to kickstart our Thursday sessions again with a trip to The Furze Wren this week. We haven't been keeping up with our weekly meetings due to work (lack of) or illness getting in the way, but hopefully now we can get back into our stride. We decided on the Furze as it is probably the easiest to get a table in and also it usually has the best choice of ales on offer (a couple of weeks ago excepted). We were not to be disappointed this week as there were plenty of new ales on offer and we were able to grab a table.
We decided not to eat at the pub this time as my funds are a bit low, but the price of the beer in a Wetherspoons is very reasonable so a trip to one of their pubs is always good value for money.
I cannot complain about any of the beers on offer this evening; all were very tasty and all had a different flavour for a great variety. I even thoroughly enjoyed the porter.
Beers drunk in this visit :
1) Summer Down Under (3.9%) - Twickenham Brewery, London - a citrusy, smooth golden ale with a strong hoppy after taste
2) Mauler (3.9%) - Ringwood Brewery, Ringwood, Hampshire - a crisp, clean golden ale
3) Ten-Fifty (5.0%) - Grainstore Brewery, Oakham, Rutland - a mahogany ale with a fine bitter-sweet balance
4) SOD - Shefford Old Dark (5.0%) - Banks & Taylor Brewery, Shefford, Bedfordshire - a malty, easy drinking porter styled ale
