maneliquor (3210) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2013
Tap at Craft Beer Co Islington. Pours amber with a small, dense white head. nose shows the bitterness about to come. Some bright tropical fruits work in its favour. Taste is heavy tropical fruits, slightly sweet with some lengthy, favouring bitterness. Works very well together and balances nicely considering its bitterness. Great stuff

Mortlach (981) - 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 è equilibrata, malto e luppolo si sposano abbastanza bene, l’amaro è intenso e abbastanza persistente. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Dark Star è sempre una garanzia!

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.
