DT #190, 9 July 2014 (Prescott Hill Climb)   Leave a comment

Prescott Hill Climb Greyhound beer garden Besselsleigh

Bus number One: Packed.
Bus number Two out ran me.
Await Three with ale.

Name: Prescott Hill Climb
Type: bitter
Venue: The Greyhound, Besselsleigh

Review/notes: Cumnor Hill is only 250 feet high and the climb spread evenly across a mile but it is always a challenge especially with a backpack filled with 15 kg of groceries and work clothes.  Today, I tackled it at a slow pace of about 9:30/mile which is probably why the bus sped past me ¼ mile from the Besselsleigh stop…”drat,” I thought, “I’ll have to wait for the next one in the pub.”  Needs must…

Prescott doesn’t make a challenging beer, in my experience, but they are all eminently quaffable.  Hill Climb would be a good introduction for a lager-head as it is simple and tasty but a bit smoother than their beloved soda water.  I tried it simply for the silly name.
