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 (483) - 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.
