Late-evening visit to the nearest pub to my hotel. Busy, and people still coming in at 10:30, at which time two more real ales were being pulled through. I forgot to claim my Nicholsonís discount and noted that this bar is quite expensive.

Backyard - Dandelion & Burdock Porter4.30GoodA very dark ruby-red colour. Served with a big, thick head. A burnt toast roastiness dominates, but dandelion and burdock (D&B) flavours do come through.

11:15 Having failed to get a drink in Ryrie's came over the road to here. Rammed with people watching the Holland World Cup game. The penalty shoot out gripped the pub.

23:00 Fairly busy. The background Muzak was loud and intrusive.
