Very busy as always on a Saturday afternoon.
Itchen Valley - Russian Winter5.30ExcellentStrong black stout with very good roast malt character. My score 16/20.
Weltons - Santa's Gone Ginger5.20AcceptableNot too ginger though, just enough to make itself known over a fairly hoppy golden beer. My score 14/20.

Otter - Otter Mild3.80ExcellentClassic West Country mild, red/brown in colour with soft fruity hoppiness and biscuity malt. Smooth mouthfeel and a lasting malty finish. My score 16/20.

Longish narrow pub on Leicester Square. Not my favourite Spoons, but hey the location is good and I did pick up a festival beer.
Bath Ales - SPA3.70GoodPaleish gold, lasting white head. Light citrus aroma. Some sweaty sox hop. Toasty, hoppy aroma, good balance in mouth. I have a soft spot for Bath beers and this is good. Bit of peach. Lovely fruity bitter. Great in mouth. Peach/grapefruit is very good. Good beer, bit like a Belgian triple without the alcohol.

Fairly busy early Saturday lunchtime. Does feel a bit transient. Lots of tourists. Had breakfast here, which was actually very good
