Evening. I had been decorating for 9 hours, ached all over but needed a pint. Good therapy here as usual.
Oakham - Citra4.20ExcellentSpot in.
4T's - Passion Storm4.80UndrinkableI was told to expect a very fruity beer - but not that it would look like pea soup. I asked if it was unfined, the answer was “yes, but not THAT unfined!” Promptly swapped and taken off sale.
