inbirraveritas (1242) - Budapest, - JAN 21, 2013
On tap. Clear golden pour, medium sized white head. Malty nose. Thin aroma ruled by biscuits and dough underpainted by some grassy hops. Rather watery mouthfeel. Short and clean grainy finish. Boring one.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2004
Draught, at the Hope and Anchor, Waterloo.
Something of a gastro pub, just lacking good food, good service and good beer. The beer selection was only Charles Wells and this was the only thing I’d not had (or seen) before. Well it was a complete was of time. Yellow/organge colour with almost no head. Sharp, sour and chemically bitter flavour. It was nothing but pain and sucking on lemons would have been more fun. Avoid this shit if you can.
