Mid evening fairly quiet, plenty of space to sit and watch the dying moments of Russia v Croatia. If only all operating theatres had bars in them, it would make the thought of being carved up far more appealing although the bar was filthy as was the barrel top we sat at to which my stool was broken which may have been a problem had I been more inebriated.

Alchemy - Tropic Shake4.00AcceptableI was expecting this warm sweet flat hazy beer to be bursting with flavours instead had a slight honey taste.

On the way home from work and quiet enough at 7:30 to bag one of the comfy seats.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Arbor Ales - SMAC in Black5.80ExcellentA citrus fruity, roasty, sticky Black IPA.
Mornington Peninsular - Sorachi5.20ExcellentOn keg dispense. Described as a Kőlsch, but not much like anything I remember drinking back when I used to visit Cologne. Pale and cloudy. Lovely lemony-sherbet flavours from the hops.
