Vladivostok (452) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Pale amber with a slight malty nose. Gently hopped with only the faintest hint of citrus. Had a pleasant palate but really not terribly distinctive. If golden ales are your thing, then this is for you, if not try the next pump.

Cask conditioned handpump Three Cocks Kettering 17/06/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Citrussy hops and sweet malts in the nose. Sweet and husky malts dominate the hops in the mouth. Ends up having a rubbery feel which ain’t what you’d expect. Good points/bad points.
