    I don't think so, John. The beer served from key kegs is not necessarily either pasteurised or filtered. This "explainer" says that the majority of KeyKeg beers are brewery conditioned. (This piece...

    As luck would have it, I drank a half of the same beer last Saturday. It was "actually drinkable", as I wrote in my review. I can't even see this beer on the bar without thinking of Alan.

    I think I vaguely remember drinking one or two of their beers in and around Leominster a few years back, but nothing particularly memorable. Ah, here we are (second page of reviews), in one of the...

    Of course it's about the experience, and I'll often increase my score accordingly. That's why I'm intrigued that you're not adding a new review to the O&P. You were so keen on the pub when you first...
