Quiet but excellent, friendly service.
Deeside - Citrus IPA5.00AcceptableSweet, thick in the mouth and a bit cloying. Absolutely no citrus edge.

Like The Marine it was too busy. Hope this was an abberation not a taste of summer. And to cap it all Dunottar Wines and Spirits was 'closed due to illness'. Almost driven to a can of Carling - not quite though.

Quiet. I'd heard from others that beer quality was suffering so thought I'd see for myself. It was.
Burnside - 3-Bullz3.80UndrinkableWarm and flat with hints of medicinal apricot. Good beer badly kept.

Had to ask for pint to be topped up. £3.15 a pint.
Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Tiger4.20PoorDon't know why they need to truck boring brown beer 350 miles but they do. Tastier beers are available much closer to home.
