Not so busy, but it looks as if it must have been earlier as there are empty glasses and detritus everywhere – the whole place looks like it needs a good scrub.

Atom - Jennsen’s Law 3.50GoodPuzzlingly described as a ‘Table Beer’, this turns out to be an amber-coloured, spiced Witbier.
Alechemy - Blood Orange Shake3.90AcceptableVery sharp orange flavours. Too sharp for me.

Mid-evening. Busier than it often is on a Sunday evening. Lots of red faces, many people having been sitting in the sun watching hockey.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ilkley - Tribus Lupulus v3.7 4.40ExceptionalA very fine beer. Golden and with a really good hop balance, featuring Ekuanot, Columbus and hbc 472. Ilkley seem to be on great form at the moment.

Tap East - IPA6.00ExcellentAs good as ever.
Bone Machine (originally cuckooed at Turning Point) - Estas Loco4.50ExcellentI didn’t note it, but I’ve a feeling this one was from a keg of some sort. Hazy gold. Chilli, lime, salt. Excellent.

Mid evening fairly quiet, plenty of space to sit and watch the dying moments of Russia v Croatia. If only all operating theatres had bars in them, it would make the thought of being carved up far more appealing although the bar was filthy as was the barrel top we sat at to which my stool was broken which may have been a problem had I been more inebriated.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Alchemy - Tropic Shake4.00AcceptableI was expecting this warm sweet flat hazy beer to be bursting with flavours instead had a slight honey taste.
