After leaving Svea on our way home from the Newtown, Linus and I ventured north along Hanover (or whatever it is called past Heriot Row) until we reached Clarks. We found it to be delightfully unpretentious and old-school.
The beer selection was decent. I had a Farne Island, from Hadrian and Border Brewery, which their website describes as "an amber coloured bitter, [with] perfectly blended malt and hops makes this well-rounded beer balanced and refreshing." I have to agree.
Linus has taken up this habit of ordering Tennents. He's gone native.
