My first visit here. Although it is a large pub, it was uncomfortably crowded early on a Saturday evening. I was unable to take note of the other beers available, but there were lots of them.
Rooster's - Astro4.30ExcellentPale and very hoppy beer, featuring the lovely Galaxy hop.

Derby - Five Lamps Ale4.30AcceptableDryish bitter with average hop and malt character and a dry, bitter finish. My score 14/20.

Buxton - Blonde4.60Excellent
Buxton - Kinder Downfall4.30Not Tried
04 May 2012 (Martin the Mildman)
Very busy on a Friday late lunchtime. Secured just about the last table in the house.
Dow Bridge - Bonum Mild3.50ExcellentA proper East Midlands mild, ruby/black in colour with sweet malt flavours of caramel, liquorice and toffee. Very little hoppiness and a fruity finish. My score 17/20.
Dow Bridge - D.B. Dark4.40ExcellentStronger version of Bonum Mild but not as dark, with all the same attributes, e.g. sweet malty flavours, low hopping and a fruity finish. My score 17/20.
Shottle Farm - 8/- Ale4.00GoodA dark red bitter with a good balance of malt and hop flavours with a slightly dry finish. My score 15/20.
14 Apr 2012 (Martin the Mildman)
Busy with diners, but found a table and joined them in the excellent and good value food served here.
Muirhouse - Magnum Mild4.50ExcellentExcellent black mild packed full of dark malt flavours; chocolate, coffee, liquorice, toffee, they're all there. No room for any hop flavours with all that going on. My score 16/20.
Wentwell - Barrel Organ Blues4.50AcceptableRuby coloured beer with some malt flavour but little in the way of hoppiness. Dry finish. My score 14/20.
12 Nov 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
