A nightcap on the way back from the Victoria. Another CAMRA heritage pub. Unfortunately it was full inside with one of the smaller rooms shut due to COVID. A massive covered area has been created in the car park so we had to sit there.

After a long session in the Victoria thought we ought to do the other GBG pub in town. Very busy.

A fairly large group of us, and we sat in the small private bar/snug area which was a bit of a squeeze.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Muirhouse - Magnum Mild4.50ExcellentConsistently excellent malty mild with loads of choclate and coffee malt flavours and low hopping. My score 16/20.

Quite busy on a Saturday lunchtime.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Leatherbritches - Scoundrel4.10GoodDark brown stronger mild with a bitterweet character and some fruity hop in the finish. My score 15/20.
Milestone - American Pale Ale4.60AcceptableA bit off style for this with bitter malt and yeasty flavours dominating over slight hoppiness with little citrus character. My score 13/20.

Saturday afternoon, We sat and enjoyed our beer in a quiet corner of this multi-roomed bar. The staff seemed to be knowledgeable about the beers on offer.

Local and passing trade providing the custom on a Monday lunchtime.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Abbeydale - Dr Morton's Rabbit Punch4.10ExcellentPale bitter with a smooth well rounded flavour of malt and citrus hops. The finish is clean, hoppy and lingering. My score 16/20.
Leatherbritches - Scoundrel4.10GoodThis was billed as a mild for the Nottingham Mild trail, so must have changed recipe as was now much less bitter with malt and fruit flavours dominating. Dark brown in colour with a fruity finish.

This pub justifiably describes itself as a Cask Ale Emporium. It has been voted Pub of the Year by the local Camra Branch. There were plenty of other beers on offer in addition to those that I have listed.

Fairly quiet on a Monday afternoon but a generally good and relaxing atmosphere. I had originally just come for the mild on the mild trail but stayed for some more beers it was such a good pub. Currently Nottingham CAMRA's pub of the year and it's not even in the GBG yet!
BeerABVScoreNotes
Spire - Dark Side of the Moon4.30ExcellentGood malt character to this reddish mild with toffee and chocolate notes. A little fruity hop and a pleasant malty finish. My score 16/20.
Leatherbritches - Scoundrel4.10GoodA dark brown bitter brewed as a house beer and sold at a very reasonable £2.00/pint. A fair bit of hop bitterness and some roast malt flavours. My score 15/20.
Leatherbritches - CAD4.00GoodAnother £2.00/pint house beer, this is more of a traditional bitter with a bittersweet fruity hop character and a dryish finish.
