Is the pint half full or half empty?

A bit of a philosophical question this but Brew Wales found ourselves in the Queens Vaults in Cardiff, more by accident than design, tonight, where they had Felinfoel Bitter on at the remarkably cheap price of £1.49 a pint! The Double Dragon is on at £1.99 a pint. Now the Queens is not a Felinfoel pub, it is owned by Mitchells and Butlers and let to the JW Bassett pub company yet they can serve the cheapest pint in Cardiff. Not normally a fan of sweet, malty beers but at this price in a city centre who can complain? The pub is reasonably busy and attracts a mixed crowd. To return to the title of this post, the Queens is the type of pub that manages to balance cheap beer and good atmosphere without attracting the chavs that large chains attract. Pint is definitely half full from here, time for another we think.
