wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2010
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Lightish gold colour with a mid sized white head. Some fragrant hops in the nose mingled with some citrus and malt notes. Smilar story in the flavour which was crisp and easy drinking. Lingering bitter finish. Decent enough but not likely to bring the house down.

Decent.
