McGarglePoor15 Mar 2017 New lines and fonts. Same tired beer.
McGarglePoor09 Jun 2016 Good beer spoiled by the serve. Warm and flabby.
McGargleAcceptable21 Mar 2015 Surprised how quickly this has 'settled'.
McGargleGood20 Mar 2015 Crisp and very refreshing.
McGarglePoor27 Feb 2014 Tired. On the way out. Left half.
McGargleGood20 Feb 2014 Smells great. But at the abv a little thin with restrained hopping. A fine session beer though.
McGargleGood21 Nov 2013 Cool, crisp, refreshing.
McGargleExcellent12 Feb 2013 Inviting hop presence on the nose carried forward to a new world hop flavour and a satisfyingly dry, moreish finish. Similar to Dead Pony Club but more restrained.

McGargleAcceptable11 Oct 2014 The cask had been disturbed so the beer poured both a little hazy and yeasty. Perfectly drinkable though and good marks to the barman for warning that it might not be in the best condition.
