kwik-lime (2044) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Quite bland. Hops dominate malt far too much and is over floral/earthy. Not a great bitter.

Dorqui (2261) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 10, 2010
Cask at The Bishops Arms - Vasagatan (Stochkolm).
Red clearly color, much firm/static, limpid one, with light head of short duration. Rather light aroma; light woody and malty notes as soon as burnt. Resin and caramel complete the nose. Smooth taste, with rather modest bitter.
