Nekronos (3594) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2006 It was a little strange, like the one from Insipiration. But it was a little sour, and sweet in aroma. Good foam and colour.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Swan, Banbury. An orange golden beer with thin head. Strangely thin on first inspection, but then a reasonable dry bitterness with tangy hop flavours. Lasting fruitiness on a fresh finish.
