    A lot of merely 'OK' stuff, with standouts countable on the fingers of one hand. I'm sure I've given the gong to Milk St in a previous week sometime this year, so the accolade goes to Gun's moreish Parabellum Milk Stout which I chanced upon at WC1's Holborn Whippet. It's unfined too, so I'm sure it'll tick some boxes for someone...

    There were some interesting pubs as well Nigel. Unfortunately you missed my post on the CAMRA forum (as Citra1) a few days before my visit suggesting we could meet up for a pint, never mind there will be a next time as Salisburys just under an hour away from me by train.
