dnicolaescu (1628) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 3, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL at 5,2% abv, courtesy of Maersk. Almost clear dark amber, off-white creamy head. Medium intensity aroma of canned mano and peaches, quite dank and a bit catty. The malts are very restrained. The taste is similar, light generic fruity maltiness, even dankier and cattier hops, clean and sharp zesty bitterness in the finish The body is so smooth and devoid of tannins, that it feel a bit watery at first. A very good and well-crafted ale.

kwik-lime (1628) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at Grey Horse, Kingston. Gorgeous tropical citrus aroma. Same tropical flavours burst through the beer although the slightly grainy body isn’t so much my thing. Lovely beer though.
