Busy in the lounge on Friday evening to approaching closing time.
Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30GoodA good pint, although tainted by the sweetness of the beer that had gone before.
Hydes - Friendship4.50AcceptableA dark reddish beer beer. Sweetish, liquorice, caramel
Bridestones - Brautsteiner4.80PoorDescribed as a ‘Pilsner’, it did not (for me) have any of the crispness and bite of the best of that style. Instead it was soft and very sweet – so sweet I could still taste it in my next two beers.
