Saturday lunchtime and the barman's first day, he had never pulled a pint before. The pub was starting to get busy by the time we left.

White - Franklins Dry Hop3.60AcceptableI did manage to finish this, but I was glad to try something else for my next pint. Ian described it as rubbery, I certainly did not enjoy it.
