albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2008
Cask at the Brusnwick, Derby. This copper beer is a well-balanced bitter. It’s not a stand out, but it’s dependable and enjoyable enough as a session beer.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
A well bittered, mineral, evolutive ale that has a crunchy, bready backbone with a certain caramelly twist. This ensemble is completed by moderate, but growing and efficient floral, earthy golding hops. Growing bitterness, finely balanced. A fresh and pleasant assemblage.
