500ml bottle: BB 16th May 18. Drank at home on 23rd Oct 17, obtained from Beers of Europe. Nice amber/brown body with a full and lasting head. Decent blend with a good malty base which holds a little sweetness, the hops adding a fine bitterness. Easy drinking traditional English Bitter, liked it.

SilkTork (5855) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Waterloo Arms, Shirley. Really pleasant hippy session bitter. The marriage of the sweet biscuit malt with the zingy yet restrained hops is wonderful. Loved this. Great beer in a great pub.

2.5
Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Somehow or another I just didn’t take to this one. Decent dark amber appearance, respectable body and a good hop rate but it had an aroma of road tar and the ingredients didn’t seem to blend particularly well. Perhaps the brewers were simply trying to get too much out of a comparatively low gravity beer.
