COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Grand Cru is deep golden in color, and has a firm yet refined malty palate. Taste and aroma have suggestions of smoke and licorice, with subtle hints of fruit and spice. An excellent beer to enjoy during the cooler seasons.

Amber colour with a huge white head. Lovely aroma of coriander, orange peel and little sourness too. Not as good as it smeel. Flavour of corinder, spices and little maltness.

Dark Amber pour, large foamy off-white head that lasts. Spice aroma. Taste is a bit chalky, with a hint of spice. Not much in the finish. Enjoyable, but not outstanding.

Darker golden color and smoothier taste than I expected.

This was disappointing. Pours almost a rusty brown. The bottle I had was NOT "deep golden". The head was light brown to off-white in color and was generous. The initial smell was bitter and reeked of bitter hops and overdone spice. The taste was soapy and a little metallic but it could have been from the hops. Finished also with a bitter kick. Not horrible but nothing worth seeking out. Stick with the Allagash Triple.

This was a very nice, fruity ale that went wonderfully with my dinner of chicken and sesame-peanut noodles. Yum. Amber with a nice subdued fruity/spicy/yeasty aroma and flavor- it was very, how shall I say (I hate to use the phrase) "drinkable". Anyway, good and recommended, though not exactly exciting.

This beer was similar to a Belgian golden ale, except much more of a malty flavor. It was hearty and filling with a nice mouthfeel. Big head when poured.

JBPortland (1211) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 16, 2015
750ml bottle batch 1! Pours murky red brown with tiny head. Nose has a bit of weird vegetal thing at first but also some dark fruit spice and caramel. Taste has some caramel, raisin, dark fruit and spice, a bit over the hill, some herbal weirdness. Mouthfeel falls a bit lifeless. Finishes semi sweet with a continuation of the palate. Would love to try this fresh as I’m sure it would rate higher.

legion242 (2336) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2002
Leather colored; Head had meduim retention; Raisin and plum in the nose. Slightly astringent. Medicinal, but not too bad. Spices are evident, but hard to pinpoint.
