Alphadelic (2146) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2015
A clean, slightly eggy aroma, a nice sweet malt and a marginally more assertive bitterness. It’s balanced but leans a touch in that direction. A hint of metal.

500ml bottle, pours clear gold, small white head. Light caramel and toffee malt, light floral and citrus notes and a little hop spice. Some sweetness in the finish which is well balanced and lightly bitter. Light bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Bottle received as a gift. Pours deep orange colour, decent head which fades before too long. A very good golden ale. Plenty of flavours of fruit, honey.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Clear golden pint with thin frothy head with soft carbonation. Soapy, hoppy, generic aroma. Generic light, creamy, hoppy taste with very mild bitterness and no finish. Not impressed.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours orange-amber with a 2 finger head that quickly goes away. Aroma of caramel, biscuit and light citrus. Taste of initial Caramel, then biscuit, some fruitiness, a touch of sweetness, vanilla and honey, then we get orange peel and lemon zest. Good!
