After a swift exit from The Elephant’s Head, we proceeded to the cranium of a different mammal, The Buck’s Head. This was more like it, a more comfortable environment, and actual, real beers on the bar, both cask and keg.
The world still needed to be put to rights, even though our group had dwindled from 6 down to 3. We hung around for a couple of drinks and a lot more chat. First up a good cask session pale ale, London Pale Ale from Southwark Brewing Co, just a few miles away and south of the river.
After that a pint of N7 from Hammerton Brewery, who are a few miles in the other direction in Islington. Lots of hops in the mix for this one but the malt bill makes it just a decent pale ale.
Good pints in a good pub. Will definitely come back next year…
