The Brew Co (now called Exit 33 after a spell as Sky's Edge) - Ginger Stout4.00GoodDoes what it says, a malty, roasty stout with a ginger taste that doesn't overpower. My score 15/20.
White Rose (Sheffield) - Christmas Croaker4.30AcceptablePale bitter with some hoppiness, a little malty sweetness and a dry finish. My score 14/20.

Bustling Saturday night, although still some space to sit ones drunken self.. Incredible pub. Puts the Rake in London to shame on its prices for bottles. Probably 100 international bottles in a glass temp controlled room at the end of the bar! 12 handpumps on too! Oh my gosh Sheffield is awesome for beer!

Came here after our visit to the beer festival. Really busy so had to make do with standing. I really do like this place, great beer and great atmosphere.

AllGates - Porteresque4.40AcceptableBlack porter, quite thick and creamy but not much going on really. Great body, not much taste.

Second stop on our crawl. This is yet another fantastic pub in Sheffield. The beer is fantastic in here, they have 12 ales on draught, another 12 or so german beers then countless bottled beers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Cocoadance3.50ExcellentA chocolate and mandarin mild with a hint of star anise apparently. Well it was bloody good. Loads of flavour for it's 3.5%.

This has the largest selection of beer I have ever seen in a pub. It was amazing. The clientele were mainly young, with a few older people dotted around. Good food as well.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Bradfield - Farmers Stout4.50GoodChocolate and coffee dominate. Fairly simple yet effective stout.
Acorn - Centennial IPA5.00GoodBig, hoppy and quite sweet. I expected more, but this is still a good IPA.
