Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 13, 2013
13/07/2013 Open Baladin (handpump). Dorata, limpidissima, schiuma bianca leggera, molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, note biscottate, agrumate, leggero fruttato ed erbaceo. In bocca č equilibrata, malto e luppolo si sposano abbastanza bene, l’amaro č intenso e abbastanza persistente. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Dark Star č sempre una garanzia!

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Keg, 23 Club, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small white head. Juicy citrus and grassy hop nose wise. Tropical fruits, sweet malt and some very tidy hop bitterness unfolded in the flavour. Tasty stuff, can’t fault it.

On tap at CP&K. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light crisp palate. Trace of creamy malt. Mild tropical fruits with tinned peaches most noticeable. Nice contrast of bitterness at the end. Minerally crisp finish. Decent.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Cask at the William Webb Ellis (JDW), Twickenham. Pale amber with a tight white head; aroma of apricot jam; starts with some fresh leafy hops, then a honeyed fruity sweetness, then the hops kick back in again with a sustained, prickly, drying finish. Good stuff.

Cask @ Akkurat. Notes of soap, grape and flour. Aroma is sweeter than the taste. Long lasting bitterness. Refreshing.
