Mid-afternoon and the pub has just a couple of other customers. It is a real time-warp like a 1970s theme bar.

Friendly locals pub. Big fuss made of the dog.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Purple Moose - Snowdonia Ale (Cwrw Eryri)3.60GoodAs good as this beer will now get. Fresh, malty with that slightly honeyed feel. Not a patch on earlier versions though.
Thwaites - Lancaster Bomber (please now use the Banks's entry)4.40Not TriedJust went off.
Brains - Hancock's HB3.60Not TriedJust came on. Brand owned by Coors and, I think, brewed by Brains.

Super friendly pub where, although Welsh is very much the first language, all are made to feel welcome.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Purple Moose - Snowdonia Ale (Cwrw Eryri)3.60GoodMuch better but I suspect the recipe has changed. Sweeter with broad hints of crystal malt. Not quite so hoppy but still eminently drinkable.
Purple Moose - Snowdonia Ale (Cwrw Eryri)3.60UndrinkableLast of the cask. Willingly changed though.
