The Louis Armstrong
"Equally undrinkable" well done Will! at Idle Valley Retford, not convinced this is a destination over Leeds or Wakey, even at a fiver e/w?
All but one of the beers were Idle Valley, with weird names like Torpid Expression and Vacant Gesture. Imagination is to the fore in some of the beer styles, too. The landlord gave me a taste of the coconut flavoured Coconut Shy PA and the equally undrinkable Vacant Gesture, a blonde beer that uncannily recreates the taste of a 1970s lager and lime, and which I was assured sold six barrels a week. Torpid Expression is described as an eccentric bitter, but this seemed fairly ordinary to me.

"Everybody's got to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer."
One of the harshest reviews I can ever remember reading from Al 10000 here. "The very grumpy landlady told my brother to sit at one of the tall tables and chairs near the entrance, I have never in all of my pub crawling been told what seat to sit at, I gave her hard stares whenever I could." He gave it a 3, which is like a negative score for any other reviewer - even the pubs with only John Smiths Smooth Crap tend to get a 6 from him.
