Busy with diners late on a Bank Holiday Monday afternoon.
Castle Rock - Cpt Albert Ball V.C. Nottinghamian Celebration Ale4.20AcceptableServed too cold with little character or condition. A faint maltiness and a dry appley finish. My score 14 with B for quality.

Batemans - Dark Mild3.00GoodQuite bitter from dark chocolate malt but low hop rate gives a dark chocolate finish. |My score 15/20.

Theakston - Mild Ale3.60AcceptableNot as good as some recent samples. Served too cold here and therefore lost a bit of flavour. My score 15/20 - B quality.
