The one pub that I really wanted to come back to in Edinburgh as I had such fond memories of it. Perhaps it was because it was so full and so hot due to the Edinburgh Festival, but it was a little uncomfortable. Still a fabulous bar and the architecture is superb. Numerous handpumps with a line of beers from Caledonian and a line from Harviestoun.

Harviestoun - Old Engine Oil (superseded on draught by 4.5% version)6.00ExcellentSofter in cask that in bottle. Tarry, good espresso, great mouthfeel. Really rather good. NIce tarry bitter finish. A lot wider in the mouthfeel than the oilier bottled beer. Great to find this on cask.
Harviestoun - Bitter & Twisted3.80GoodNice tea and citrus, but nowhere near the explosion of flavour and aroma when I had this beer here for the first time 5 years ago.
Harviestoun - Liberty4.10GoodGold, lasting white head. Typical Harviestoun beer with good citrus flavours.

Had given some friends a lift through to Edinburgh and stopped for lunch in the balcony restaurant area. Friendy service. Sat by the railings where I could see the ales blackboard. Two new ones appeared just in the hour we were there.
