Mid-evening and surprisingly quiet.

Mid afternoon and fairly quiet.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Geltsdale - Brampton Bitter4.00PoorI have had some excellent beers in this pub, and this is the first time that I have been disappointed, the beer was pulled with a tight sparkler that gave it a head, but this quickly vanished to give a flat pint with a few blotches as a head, it seemed completely dead to me. I did not finish it.

Good to see a group of Club Brugge supporters in here ahead of tonight’s match at St James Park.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fyne - Sanda Black5.50ExceptionalGreat to catch up with the dark version of this beer. It is a luscious black IPA, darkened (I assume with malt extract) to give a really complex, mellow and lovely pint.
Anarchy - Blonde Star4.10GoodGolden. Bitter-sweet, quite malty, bit of hop character.
