Glamorgan (formerly Kite) - Bluestone Bitter4.00GoodBiscuity and malty not to my taste
Three Friends - Two Face 4.00GoodDescribed as floral citrus tones but more sweet and toffee.

Evening. Usual locals' welcome. Landlady Lynda a tad indisposed after a replacement hip op. An extra handpump has been added in the saloon bar for draught cider.
