Quite busy late on a Saturday afternoon.
Box Steam - Tender Mild3.60GoodRuby mild with a mix of toasted malt and fruity hop flavours. Dryish finish. My score 15/20.
14 May 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
Fairly busy on a Saturday afternoon.
RCH - Hewish Mild3.60ExcellentUnusually black for a West Country mild, this is full of biscuity and toffee malt flavours with some fruity hop for balance. The finish is malty and lingering. My score 17/20.

Another busy pub on a Saturday afternoon with standing room only inside.
Box Steam - Blindside Bitter4.20AcceptableA malty amber bitter with dry, bitter malt flavour but little hop balance. A dry finish. My score 14/20.

08 May 2010 (Martin the Mildman)
Quite busy on a late Saturday afternoon.
Saltaire - Triple Choc (was Triple Chocoholic)4.80ExceptionalHad to turn down a mild for this, which is an unmissable beer. Still as chocolatey and stouty as ever. My score 20/20.
