Cask at The Merchants, Rugby (House beer). Light blond with a strong white head, Hop notes and very refreshing. I’ve never tried this before as its always on and a bit common, but was quite impressed. Very nice.

Vladivostok (250) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Not quite as pale as some of its ilk but still has a lagery appearance. Mouthfeel is rather thin for the gravity and finish is typically harsh and bitter. Pretty much an identikit citrusy beer which really doesn’t do anything for me.

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Cask at the George, Croydon. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is fresh, doughy, toasty, floral, perfumed and citrus peel. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemon, grapefruit, floral, straw and light soap with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Balanced, tasty and crushable. Grade A golden.

At hop in York, lacking hoppiness for an oakham ale. Ok, but green devil and cites are better.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Really quite good. Will try again as drunk in a hurry. Nice taste and appearance. Good strength. Yes on second sample excellent. Usually like darker beers but well balanced. Nice citrus flavours.
