Fairly quiet early evening on Boxing Day and surly service. Unusually, the food was substandard too so the chef must have been on Christmas leave. 3 ales available plus Aspells mulled cider (yuck). Once again the Leicestershire sparkler infestation was in evidence. I asked the barmaid to remove it but she just looked at me vacantly. Never mind.

Batemans - XXXB (now superseded by 4.8% version)4.50GoodAn East Midlands stalwart. Dark with ruby hues, Batemans big malt and a hint of caramel in there.
Batemans - Santa's Tipple4.00AcceptableI'd had my fill of Christmas specials by this point. This one didn't stand out. Typically malt-laden and dark brown.
Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Tiger4.20Not TriedHouse regular.
