Busy on a Saturday afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wolf - Queen of Diamonds4.20GoodDeep golden ale with a biscuity malt character with a little fruity hop. My score 15/20.
27 Jul 2007 (Ian)
Last of the 3 pubs to the north of the city that are all within easy walking distance of each other. Corner pub with central bar containing a cooled room for the gravity beers. Attractive wooden beams, several drinking areas, largish yard at rear with tables. White boards show the (up to) 20 beers on.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Burton Bridge - Bramble Stout5.00GoodGravity. Very deep ruby colour, off white head. Very roasted aroma, vergining on charcoal. Some dark fruits. Juicy in mouth, no real sourness, fairly good brambly fruit, lacks a little condition. Bit of powdery coffee on end. Nice fruit too.
Wolf - Golden Jackal3.70PoorGold, thin white head. Bit of diacetyl, bit of yeast. Good condition, some citrus finish, bit of juicyness, but diacetyl kills it.
27 Jul 2007 (Andrew)
Large corner pub with plenty of seating out the back for smoakers. Many of the beers were on gravity with a tap room behind the main bar
