11:30 First stop and meeting point for a pub crawl round Hitchin. We were the only customers. The pub opens early for breakfast but doesn't serve alcohol until 11:00.

Moles - Elmo's Fire4.40Good
Buntingford - Triskel4.00AcceptableVery lager like. The pump clip says the hop has a penchant for soft cheese. First time I have seen an indication of a hop's diet.
