Evening. An odd experience, the bar service seems not to "flow". Only a couple of Castle Rock beers on and moved to the pumps furthest from the front doors since all previous visits.

Evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Robin Hood - Bendigo Bitter4.00PoorBroke my rule to not drink a beer which hides its true provenance. Clip makes no mention of Robin Hood Brewery. A hazy very dry beer with a rather unpleasant over-caramelled metallic after-taste. Whether it was only £2.60 pp to clear or a Monday special price I did not investigate
