Alphadelic (2221) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Sweet malts with a tinge of metallic bitterness to begin with. Some almost undetectable whiffs of fruit. A dry finish which left me a little unsatisfied. Rough yet respectable.

harrisoni (18050) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2007
Cask handpull at Victoria, Earl Soham. Chestnut, lasting beige head. Excellent condition. Strong hop and rich brown sugar malt aroma. Smooth in mouth, and then a big burst of hop on the finish. Really peppery. Decent best bitter, with a very heavy hop finish for an English beer. Malts are toffeeish.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Wenlock Arms. Sweetish aroma. Red brown with very little head. Tart and sweet with plenty of caramel notes. Unexpected bitter hop finish. Slightly unusual but good.

Murky brown color, fluffy beige head. Doughy, grainy toffee. Tight bitter, but slightly chemical taste. Medium body, gritty mouthfeel. Interesting, but not a good balance overall.

Thanks a lot Chris_o! Nice hazy copper color with a fizzy head. Light malt nose. Light malt and toffee taste that improves as it warms up.
