Afternoon into early evening sat in the main, front bar.
Salt Beer Factory - Pashmina6.20ExcellentI think this one probably came from a keg of some sort. It is a lightly-roasted, creamy, malty Stout. Dark berry fruit flavours develop as the pint goes down. Very good.
Bone Machine (originally cuckooed at Turning Point) - I, of the Storm Kalamansi6.20GoodA rather sticky IPA with abundant fruit flavours. Lime and apricot.
