Late evening visit well across midnight until last bus at 1am. Superb band playing so loudly my ribs were vibrating and a top notch rendition of Eminem's The Real Slim Shady to boot!

First Chop Brewing Arm - MCR Manchester Bitter4.40AcceptableLittle life in this making it a chore
Clouded Minds - Scintilla4.40PoorFirst I thought it was hazy but difficult to see as a dark red ale. As glass emptied I could see sediment in the glass. Too late to send back, cut my losses and gulped it down
