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

Truman's - Original Porter4.50Excellent
Cronx - Standard3.80UndrinkableCloudy with distinct whiffs and tastes of acetics. Swapped with good grace and taken off sale. Pity as I have not seen Cronx anywhere for yonks and was keen to try some

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?

Very busy with late lunch diners on a Saturday afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Weltons - Autumn Shades4.40AcceptableDeep golden ale with a bittersweet flavour mainly from amber malts rather than hops. Dryish finish. My score 14/20.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Weltons - Chanctonbury Ring Oatmeal Stout5.60GoodDark brown stout which promises more than it delivers. Rather thin with some maltiness but also some hop bitterness. The finish is dryish and fruity. My score 15/20.
