14:00 visit. I arrived in Lime Street at 10:15 for this five day "jolly" around Merseyside? After a quick blat around the centre, this was my first ale of the day in this fine City. Been here before and busy as ever this visit with shoppers and diners. Good ale range on too. A current 2013 gbg and eleven times previous in 1997/8/2001-3/6/8-12.
