14:15 Fairly busy. Interesting point raised by the barman whilst discussing unfined beers, they are popular with vegans. Personally I like my beers fined.

17:00 Fairly busy when we arrived but thinned out over a two pint stay. New GBG 2014 entry so wanted to see if the pub deserved it. Numbers of beer reduced and an improvement in quality. Interesting choice of beers as well.

A large group was just leaving as I arrived mid Saturday afternoon, leaving me as the sole customer for a while.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wolf - Wolf In Sheep's Clothing3.70AcceptablePerhaps not in the best of condition, a little tired and lacking the usual bite of this beer. My score 14/20.
Green Jack - Australian Summer3.70AcceptablePale bitter presumably brewed with Australian hops. Some hop bitterness but not to any great effect. Dry finish. My score 14/20.
