rand (1250) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 500 ml from Open All Hours in Keswick (Cumbria-Engl). Ale golden, flat, sweet floral aromas, lemon and honey on hopped bottom. In mouth, we discover, moreover, a malty taste of apricot and biscuit. Good balance of bitterness. But it is not a "vintage". Just one bitter as there is so much.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Had this at the Cambridge beer festival, wasn’t taking too many notes that day. It doesn’t stand out too much for me on the day. Light and drinkable but with no truly notable characteristics. More cereal than hop.
