Last pub of our trip to Sheffield, the good old Dev Cat. Steady crowd in for a monday night.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Acorn - Bullion IPA5.00ExcellentVery easy drinking IPA, perhaps a little more subdued than I expected but delicious nonetheless.
Black Iris - Blackjack Mild4.10AcceptableChocolatey mild, just a little lacking in flavour.

Plenty of are people using this pub as a pre-football match lunch and drinks venue – although travellers from London appear to outnumber the locals.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Acorn - Magnum IPA5.00GoodAcorn are on to their second series of single-hopped IPAs. This one has a very bitter hop character.
Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Youngers No. 34.30GoodNow that Wells & Young’s own the Younger’s brands it is interesting to see that they have revived No. 3, probably the best-regarded Younger’s beer. Dark brown, sweet malt, a bit of roasted barley, bitter finish.

This pub is a great compromise pub. Has the great beer but also attracts the young student types and has a buzzing atmosphere. Really busy tonight with a long wait at the bar for drinks, well worth it though.
