DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2007
Aroma is toffee and caramalt, grassy hops but as it moves on citrus comes through also. Taste is similar with again the citru coming out towars the end, could do with more citrus.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 29, 2006
Boring, not big deal, the foam is very bubbling, but too bitter, as its name says. But it was like a strong tea.
