Oak on the Green Bearsted  06th June 2023   £5.45

Poured too quick (95 seconds)  tilted for a second then stood on its base. Welcome would have been ok with a smile.

Bishop's collar was a little thin but the dome ok. The taste was not too bad but not the creamy taste we are looking for.

Richard Cobden Irish Pub Luton  11 July 2023  £4.80

Welcome great and friendly but very loud music which isn't a problem if you like it but did have a little Irish feel about it.

To be honest I was hoping for the perfect pint as this was the first Irish pub visited but, it was not to be. Poured in 98 seconds and running down the side of the glass. Despite this the bishops collar and dome were not bad, however it failed on the taste test and ended up a little watery and not a lot of residue at the end.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Alexandra Chatham  11 July 2023  £4.20

Great friendly welcome from the landlord and bar staff.

Poured in 122 seconds which is very close to the perfect pour of 119.5 seconds.

The result was a nice bishops collar and dome. 

The taste test was one of the nicer pints experienced, unfortunately the residue was a little thin but my guess it was the glass that needed refurbishing. 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Star Gillingham  11 July 2023  £4.10

Welcome was very basic when we eventually got served.

This was the quickest pint ever at 34 seconds!!! surprisingly the bishops collar was not too bad but a flat dome.

Considering how quickly it was poured the taste was not too bad but did go a little watery at the end and the residue didn't cling to the glass.
