Evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Beartown - Bruins Ruin5.00ExcellentFresh pint was excellent with lingering bitterness
Beartown - Bruins Ruin5.00UndrinkableI was suspicious of the quick fill and shuffling. I had a wander and could see several Icebergs sitting below counter too. I challenged if this was a top up of some stale beer below deck and this was acknowledged. Replaced
