Evening. Return visit before the train away. Disappointed to see that no beers which had run out earlier had been replenished then I suffered an awful Sarson's snorter of a pint.
Slater's - Golden3.80UndrinkableStrong acetic smell and taste. Spoke to the fellow changing the beer blackboard entries and he simply opined that it was near the end and that he wished he could throw away the last 5 pints of every cask. One would expect a Good Beer Guide pub to jump to attention, change it and take it off sale but he did none of these. A barmaid drowned the pint in lemonade for me but that could not cover up the whiff either. Bad experience

Evening. Good to see wide range of real and cider on my first stop. All beers seemed to be frothing up and / or having some problem or other as I was to find out for myself. No CAMRA discount, as on a Tuesday all real ales are discounted to £1.95 pp.
Lincoln Green - Marion Pale Ale3.80AcceptableFar too lively, hazy, sour bitterness
Front Row - Touch4.00PoorMetallic and simply not right, ran out when next customer ordered
Titanic - Nautical Mild4.80Not TriedRan out
Slater's - Golden3.80Not Tried
All Hallows - Peg Fyfe Dark Mild (originally 3.2%)3.60Not TriedRan out shortly after I arrived
Cottage - Oarsome4.10Not TriedWhy does Cottage use so many beer names? It can not encourage ANY brand loyalty
