Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic ESB with warm, bronzy amber colour and creamy mouthfeel, malty character, nutty, hint of apples, diacetyl (buttermilk) as expected from a cask-conditioned ale, thin mouthfeel also as expected and light bitter finish. Not the biggest personality in its style, some say a victim of its own success, but still enjoyable if you like bitters.

Tasted on draft in various different pubs in my location. A reasonable ale, which is usually well-priced. A good all-rounder but nothing special.
