17:50 Fairly quiet. Bit of a barn without lots of people. After we were served a chap ordered a pint of Trawlerboys but the barmaid struggled to pull one and turned the clip round. Before we left the clip was back facing front. I asked her why and she said that there had been a problem with the beer fobbing. Problem with the gas I asked. Yes came the reply. Not a problem I usually associate with cask beer.

13:10 Third port of call. Very quiet. Asked the barman to compliment the Redwall brewery on producing a cask beer.
Redwell - Indian Pale Ale6.50ExcellentThis brewery normally only does fizz beer. I wish they would do more cask based on this example.

Largish pub just off the inner ring road. Plenty of exposed wood and beige walls. Long wooden bar, 15 handpumps with 2 lots of the Elgoods beers. Not overly busy mid Thurs afternoon.
Elgood's - Black Dog Mild3.60GoodQuite toasty, roasty, bit like burnt toast, roasty finish. Bit doughy/bready on aroma. Good mild.

Virtually empty when we got in with only 1 other person. Big place though so with no one in it felt a bit odd.
Elgood's - Black Dog Mild3.60GoodSome roasted notes, hint of cream. Short lived bitter finish
