A wonderful, rich, malty beer. It has masses of flavor and a slightly sweet finish. Dangerously drinkable!
Ingredients: Pearl pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, wheat malt. Goldings and Challenger hops.

Alphadelic (1908) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Rich and caramel looking. Very sweet and dusty, along the lines of crappy chocolate. Not sure I like this much, A bit sterile and almost burny. It has some nice flavours in the finish but all round the overwhelming bleachiness of it all is a huge put-off. So metallic and sickly.

cask. I forget where .I forget when. I forget who I was with...but my notes praise this dark ESB.
I remember now, a pub while spending a day or 2 in Kent this week...I forget the pubs name . A robust ,rich beer. The beer drinks down feeling stronger than 4.8 % alcohol....and that is a fun illustion . As this beer is pretty heafty ,its maltiness is powerful. Treacly caramel.I dig that most of the time.A little burnt on the palate.Tepid and flavoursome .

Amber with a large off white head. Rather a wonderful sweet burnt caramel aroma. Sweet, nutty malt taste and decent bitterness to follow. Liked this a lot.
