Fin (8199) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
On tap (didn’t note if handpump or keg), at The Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol, Friday 2nd January 2015 Pours amber with slim white head. Strangely I get a tiny bit of coffee (not dure where that comes from?) but with a little streaky bitterness. Its a good beer but Wiper & True can and do, do better. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2
