Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
(Cask): Dark amber colour, white head. Aroma is just a big bomb of sweet fruity notes - particularly berries. Taste has a more subdued sweet fruit taste, slight malt notes, nuts and bread. Overall quite a nice session beer.

Cask conditioned handpump Slug & Lettuce Leicester 12/09/13. A ruby coloured beer with a white head. A sweet and fruity beer throughout. Lots of berry fruits initially but it does lack a bit of depth. Quite shallow in the aftertaste. It’s OK but nowt special.
