    Writing a review and ticking the pub are not necessarily the same thing, but that aside I tend to agree with you.

    Whether you "tick" a pub or not is entirely up to you. It's not a competition and there are no rules.

    I wasn't planning on going to any pubs that are new to me. If it turns out that I do, I'll let you know whether it constituted a tick or not! ;)

    Not saying that you haven't, but a lot of people drink with their eyes and if their beer doesn't have a frothy head they reckon it's not right....

    Thanks, Mick. Somehow this detail makes sadder reading than the simple fact of Aqualung's death, sad as it was.
