Mid-evening. I watched enviously as most of the other customers took part in a Belgian beer tasting.

Bristol Beer Factory - Trick of the Light4.20ExcellentDescribed as an American Brown Ale, although came across to me as a well-hopped, amber-coloured Bitter. Very good too.

A quick late-evening pint. Quick because it's flipping cold in here and even the staff are huddled in their coats.

Late evening 10 mins to go before 23.00 closing, half a dozen or so finishing up as I arrived so just in time for a swift one before catching my train home.

Sunday evening quiet session.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Cromarty - Happy Chappy4.10ExcellentA pale golden, US-style Pale Ale. Tropical fruit and citrus flavours from the hops.
Tap East - IPA6.00ExcellentGood to see this back on the bar. And it's tasting great.
Tap East - Weizenbock7.10AcceptableFrom keg dispense. Strong and full-flavoured. But lacking head retention.

Friday night. A bold pub mouse ran over my foot at one point.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Bristol Beer Factory - Subtropic4.40ExcellentFull tropic.
Tap East - Experimental: Small Smokestack4.40GoodWhisper it, but apparently this was a missbrew of the usual Smokestack Porter, coming out understrength. It has all the smoke but less of the umph.

Mid-evening.

Tap East - Gyle 5007.10ExceptionalThe penultimate cask of this strong, spiced Milk Stout has been released -the last one is being hoarded until Christmas. It is now fantastically mellow and the cardamom flavour in particular has developed.
