Sadler's (see also Windsor Castle entry) - Boris Citrov4.70GoodBetter than first pint. Just the queues I hate
Sadler's (see also Windsor Castle entry) - Peaky Blinder Black IPA (was 4.6%)4.40AcceptableEven with a sparkler the head disappeared quickly. Uninspiring. Will I try saddlers other beer on tonight?

Too many available soon on. Read in local camra mag that Bishop Vesey named local POTY for 9th time running so maybe a visit there later tonight? Found Gadds no 5 on in spoons Charlie Hall earlier. Never knew Gadds sold to spoons!
