Saturday evening and just brilliant. A shame to see that they appear to be using auto-vacs though.

Absolutely heaving after Ladies Day at the races so bought a carry out and left. Beer list same as last night.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Oakham - Scarlet Macaw4.40ExcellentIf anything better than last night. Hops shone through a clear malt backdrop.

Great place bursting with ale drinkers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Oakham - Scarlet Macaw4.40ExcellentVery drinkable APA.
Oakham - Green Devil IPA6.00ExcellentHop forward modern IPA with sweet lats and a dry bitter finish.
Tempest - Ball Park3.80GoodSomething lacking in this pale ale. Needed a bit more focus, felt rough round the edges. Surprising for a Tempest beer.
