duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2006
Cask@Chelmsford Beer Festival. Brewed with shellfish, so not a good start. Not sure it did anything for the flavour, except for maybe a slight saltyness. Quite limey and citric, and, well, pretty bland.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at Chelmsford BF): Smells citric and slightly malty. Tastes unlike mussels. A bit like playdoh, but surprisingly refreshing with it. Aroma is much like Belgo’s thai mussels and that can only ever be a good thing!
