Citrus and fruity hops flirt with reserved English barley and some very naughty Bohemian malts to make a characterful blonde ale that you’ll want to meet again.

Vladivostok (451) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Very pale with a thin white lacing that lasts. Sweet honeyish aroma leading on to a pleasant refreshing ale with a nice mouthfeel. Hopping is rather restrained but nonetheless this is a quality beer for the warmer months.

Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, some apple and grassy hops. Taste is similar of citrusy lemon and apple, dry grapefruit, grassy hops and some berry sweetness. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A decent dry, golden ale. Just not my style.
