The no logo pale ale that they carry is below average as pale ales go, but is perfectly drinkable at the end of the day. Certainly better than the Peroni you...more
Apologies now for the long and boringly detailed review, it made me feel better!
I had heard a lot of really great stuff about Franco Manca, but the higher you are in my expectations, the further you have to fall!
