*Old rating from 2011. Golden Ale with its typical flavour. Fresh grainy, hints of sweetness with a moderate bitterness. Nice but a bit sweetish grainy aftertaste.

Alphadelic (2202) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2015
A clean, slightly eggy aroma, a nice sweet malt and a marginally more assertive bitterness. Its balanced but leans a touch in that direction. A hint of metal.
