Greene King - Abbot5.00GoodNot the greatest but cheap with voucher..1.65. Elvis at 650ml bottle was much nicer.

Fairly quiet mid Thursday afternoon, but a little busier on returning later in the afternoon.
Triple fff - Moondance4.20ExcellentAn excellent well rounded amber bitter with good balance of hop and malt. Let down a little by being served too cold here. My score 16/20 with B for quality.
Sixpenny (Wayland's Sixpenny) - 6d Special5.00AcceptableQuite a bitter strong amber beer with an assertive dry, bitterness that continues right to the finish. My score 14/20.
