18:00 visit. Met up with my local compatriots in here, at the end there working week. Quite busy, with an impressive, as always, large range of ales on. Great to visit the old place again, and just time now for a couple of samples before we moved on. A current, 2013 gbg entry and 6 times previous in:1987/2008-12
Offbeat - Out of Step IPA5.80ExceptionalA top example of the style, and no surprises that it's another winner today!
Empire - Export Stout6.00ExceptionalA top stout, full of everything and a second winner here today. Numerous other winners were noted, alas, time to move on.

Six Bells - Dozen it taste lovely3.90GoodGolden ale with a good balance of hop and malt. My score 15/20.

Irwell Works - Tin Plate Dark Mild3.60Exceptional
Leyden - Kate & Wills4.20Excellent
Moorhouse's - Top of the Pubs3.70Excellent
07 May 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
Fairly busy mid Saturday afternoon.
Irwell Works - Tin Plate Dark Mild3.60ExcellentRuby/black in colour. Sweet and malty with toffee, chocolate and liquorice flavours all present. Low hoppiness. The finish is sweetish and quite fruity. My score 16/20.
Summer Wine (SWB) - Valencia Citra Pale Ale4.00AcceptableVery pale and extremely hoppy. As much as I like the Citra hop, there was just a little too much in this, giving a very sharp, unbalanced dry citrus flavour that wasn't entirely to my taste. One for devoted hopheads. My score 14/20.
20 Jan 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
Beer festival in progress and pub busy as a result.

02 Oct 2010 (Martin the Mildman)
Bustling and busy early on a Saturday afternoon. Food again available here so partook of a very substantial ham omlette and chips.
Salamander - Star Turn4.00AcceptableHoppy and quite bitter pale ale with a hint of Sorachi hop giving the tang of cold tea. My score 14/20.
