BlackHaddock (4985) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Hand-pulled cask pint in The Imperial, a Wetherspoons in Walsall on 4th July 2015. Blonde by name blonde by nature, white head on top. Mild citrusy feel to the whole thing, not as exciting as I’d hoped but a decent refreshing beer that is not going to test any of your senses too greatly.
