Noon. Usual queuing at the spoons bar. Should they instigate a Q system? Off to Slovenia - any suggestions for a good bar anyone?

Much busier than The Beehive. As usual uninspiring cask selection.

Totally unimpressed. Five pump clips showing but only Hobgoblin and Pedigree available. In one day we see the good and bad of Spoons with the excellent George contrasted with this. Captive market I fear.

Midday - heaving - but one just has to have a decent pint before leaving the UK. Off to Croatia - will try and seek out some local brews.

England were playing Slovenia on the muted screens. A pint or two before a flight is now a tradition, regardless of the time of day or night. Moved on to the Amarillo Bar & Grill afterwards and was delighted to find Sierra Nevada Porter in bottles.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Exmoor - Gold4.50AcceptableClear but a little stale-tasting. Still preferable to the usual drivel.
