Few in for 5.30 visit. Nice convivial atmosphere.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Caledonian - Over the Bar4.20GoodSlightly generic beer, some bitterness with rather ordinary aroma. Darkish brown. Hint of toffee.
Marston's - Bass4.40PoorCompletely devoid of aroma, taste and any interest whatsoever. Rather a sad reflection of the once great beer
Marston's - Pedigree4.50Not Tried

Quite a few in for a 5.30 visit. Beers impeccably served as usual.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Purity - Pure UBU4.50GoodTry as I like, I can't love this beer. I find it too citrussy and fragrant for the pale ale it pretends to be. Well served, perfect temperature, with citrus and floral undertones and a sharp bitter finish and aftertaste. Not to my taste. Will try the Peddy next time - I have it on good authority it's excellent
Marston's - Pedigree4.50Not TriedDid not try, but the locals like it and looked perfect!
Marston's - Bass4.40Not Tried

Website.

The pub is found in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, DE15 0LQ.

(Fairly) recently refurbished local which serves its community as well as a sizeable after work crowd. Impeccably served beers, not long before this pub will be in the Guide, IMHO. Typical lounge and bar, Bass and Pedigree as regulars as well as a frequently rotating guest. Landlord local CAMRA officionado.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 4 different beers and tried 3 of them.
