Late-afternoon after a nice day out in the Lower Derwent valley. The first of the after work crowds are beginning to come in.

20:45 My first visit since the doubling in size. Could do with some soft furnishings to dampen the noise. Parade of Hen parties passing by.

Evening. Very disappointed to see a clearly identified "off" beer left on sale.

Timothy Taylor - Golden Best3.50Excellent
Black Sheep - Golden Sheep3.90UndrinkableCustomer before me sent his back as vinegar. I asked for a taster and can only say it had burnt caramel and acetic qualities. Long delay before his bad 'un was replaced then a behind the bar cabal decided there was lots left in the cask so must be ok (!) and left on sale.

Quiet on a February Wednesday lunchtime. We sat in the front window and watched the weather change from sunshine to snow and back again.

Otley - O3 Boss4.40AcceptableHmmmh! Not sure Otley is brewed to be dispensed through a restrictor. Too creamy and little flavour - perhaps too fresh

Stalked the City Walls to get here for 2025 hours. For once a large crowd drinking at the bar. Friendly and knowledgeable staff as always.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Kirkstall - Three Swords4.50ExcellentVerdict after getting half day down the first pint was that is was another mediocre golden ale then excitement set in on the lips forcing the ordering of a second pint. Before I could finish telling the barmaid this she had observed that the beer grows on you. She was not a wax dummy but rather Madame Three Swords (geddit?).
