Late evening visit. Trust someone to tipover and break a pint glass of Bulmers Blackcurrant cider on to the floor for the best of stains.

Mid evening visit. Victoria station is buzzing but outside seems to be bemoaning heavy heads from last night.

Evening. Smart venue. Commendable to see 12 pumps each with a different beer and all "on".
BeerABVScoreNotes
Clouded Minds - N18 Session Pale Ale4.00GoodIn good condition but how boring to find another lemon juice beer. They are so one dimensional - are they easy and / or cheap to produce as they have become so ubiquitous?
