Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2010
The powerful nose if of honey-sweet malts. In the mouth it is a different story. A light, but full bitterness almost obscures the bran-like undertone which then comes out in the finish.

500ml Bottle @ The Bear, Camberwell, London. Copper colour with small white head. Aroma is malty / citrus / with some fruitiness too. Taste is earthy / fruity / possibly some spice and nuttiness. Drinkable but nothing outstanding.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle picked up from Wyevale garden centre, Bicester, Oxon, 20-05-07. Poured amber in colour some fruity citrus notes to the aroma. Tasted nice fruity and malty, possibly a touch sweet but otherwise very quaffable and possibly the best of the four from Itchen Valley that I’d had in bottles over the last few days.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy amber with a small, off-white head. Somewhat fat, malty aroma. Rather light in body with accents of nuts and some subdued caramel. Distinct dry citrusy notes before a marked bitterness finishes this off. A nice Bitter. 050806

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 5, 2006
Poured from the bottle (courtesy of the London crew), amber in colour with quite a lot of carbonation present, rising to a large rocky, slightly off-white, head (which kept on building). An earthy maltiness to the aroma, with some citrus hop notes. A dry, bitter and dusty mouthfeel, with a biscuity malt flavour and a slightly tangy fruit finish. OK, but not spectacular.
