3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home - 23/09/12 thanks to Steve (Beers I’ve known).
Hazy reddish amber with a big frothy off-white head.
Nose comprises hops, biscuit malts, light fruit and toffee tones and a whiff of glue.
Malt heavy in the flavour, toffee, biscuit and a little orange and fruit.
Medium bodied, soft but quite evident carbonation and a little on the wet side.
Drinkable but I wouldn’t be seeking this one out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biscuit malt with hints to dark fruit mixed with sour apple and spice and a smokey note which is interesting. Quite a sweet brew which has hints of having hung about in the bottle to long. Reminds me of sweeter, less hoppy version of 5am Saint.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a red tinge. The nose is of ginger bread and something tangy that I can’t put my finger on. The taste is of cake mixture, crunchy red fruit, possibly cranberries, then biscuits to finish. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly clean finish. Overall, good but more interesting than good.

The AlphaDog is great with fatty, heavy food, such as pork, and is perfectly heavy for an ale. It unfortunately lacks a little in taste and flavour.
