Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - ESB5.50ExcellentMarmalade dry hoppy thing going on. Good condition. Grew up drinking this and always try it out of its home turf. A very good example of it here. Damn good. Had 4 just to be sure.

Was walking in the area and guessed Ripple must have a pub. It was busy inside with people eating but there appeared to be a band about to play in the yard by the side of the pub so we sat there. The band hadn't come on by the time we left.
