ARW (3) - ENGLAND - APR 25, 2006 does not count
Delightful dry hopped character brew, with delicate perfumed hoppy bitter notes. Nose; at its best should smell slightly of vomit, believe it or not. Has reputation of not travelling which is confirmed if you try some from the brewery tap in Southwold. Best place for a pint - The Lord Nelson (same town).

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2006
(Cask at Old Mitre, Hatton Garden, London 20 Apr 2006) Colour is amber/copper. Nose is malty and fruity with a hint of sewage. Taste is malty and fruity with apricots and mandarine, rather dry and bitter finish. Nice and rather complex. Always a reliable resort if nothing more exciting is available.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 15, 2006
I liked the fact that it is really bitter, as it says in the label of the Cask. It is a little cloudy the head, and like foam.
