Alengrin (1719) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Atypical bitter in that it is apparently made with wheat. Thin, off-white, sticky head, warm and pretty bronze colour, clear. Somewhat strange aroma of iron, bitter honey, tomato, parsley, grass and caramel. Dry mineral-like onset, restrained fruitiness, some caramel malts in the background, vaguely sourish hint, bit metallic, finishing in mild grassy hops but also a bit watery. Unusual for its style.

MichaelAwesome (4082) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Morrison in Cowes shared with McTapps. Crispy and malty start with some nuts in the back. Easily drinkable with malt in the middle and ending. Remiding me of a german dunkel or a malty alt. Bit one sided but brewed with love. Good one.

Bottle bought at the Morrisons on the Isle of Wight. Pours out in a deep brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of malt and hops with barley. Taste of malt, raisins, berries, mild hops and sherry. Wonderful to drink, enjoyed it a lot.
