COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A straw coloured extremely moreish session beer that has a surprisingly full flavour for its strength. A pleasant and distinctive aroma is followed by a moderate hop bitterness. The fresh finish is shorter than Shere Drop, and leaves you wanting another...

Alphadelic (2132) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2009
Cask @ London Drinker 25: A pale gold beer with a little head and a slightly suphurous aroma that mingles with notes of lemongrass and wheat. In the mouth it is crisp and balanced with honey and cereal finish. It is however, entirely void of any satisfying bitterness. It is thin and becomes quite fizzy in the finish. It is quite lovely in a delicate kind of way, if a little gassy and meek.
