The Basketmakers Arms, Brighton 6th April 2007

We found this fairly large Fuller's pub at the end of Gloucester Road, away from most of the tourists, selling a wide range of Fuller's and other beers.

Jennings Cumberland Ale (4.0%): Hoppy beer with a strong honey flavour. Pleasant, considering it was the last drink out of the barrel.
Fuller's Discovery (3.9%): Can't really think of much wrong with this. A golden, immensely hoppy light beer.
Fuller's Gale's Butser Bitter (3.4%): Pleasant rounded taste initally a little weak with a gorgeous hoppy aftertaste.

Fuller's IPA (4.8%): Another pleasant light hoppy Fuller's beer. Doesn't quite taste strong enough for a real IPA.

The beers were good, with an extensive selection. We didn't try the Adnams Bitter, London Pride or Fuller's ESB or HSB. The homemade food (we had the steak and ale pie, mmm) was excellent.
