DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, - NOV 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Bronze with a scummy white foam. Annoying peach iced tea aroma; floral, peachy, a bit sickly. That same flavour without the hops to lay claim to IPA status. Sponge cake infused with peach air freshener; honey, orange Smartie notes. Would’ve loved this 5 years ago but I’m a fussy bugger these days and too into the hops. Pleasant enough but too watery, peachy and malt-sweet for me or the missus.

Mortlach (1130) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 30, 2014
On tap @Mad For Beer (Rome). Pours deep golden with a medium white head that rapidly disappears. Aroma is tropical fruits and citrus,a bit dull, also some vegetables. Flavour is light bitter, malt, some hops, dull and messy, probably not so fresh. Medium to light body, higher than expected, medium carbonation. Not a good experience.
