prawlie (1577) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017
On cask at London’s Pride at Heathrow Airport. Nice peach aroma. A respectable bitter with light body, easy drinking. Not exceptional but hard to fault.

Vladivostok (482) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
I found this very ordinary, not unpleasant but just dull. Nothing to distinguish it from the thousands of other golden ales doing the rounds. Fuller’s whose darker beers are amongst the best, certainly when their size is taken into account, really haven’t got it sorted when it comes to paler beers.

Holmen1 (5665) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2017
Fra håndpumpe på London’s Pride Heathrow, mars-17: klar gylden med fint skum. Milde toner av citrus, stikkelsbær og blomster både i aroma og smak. Lavt karbonert, slank og lettdrikkelig, med en fin og frisk bitterhet - en god avslutning på en super uke i London og Canterbury.
