Alengrin (5187) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2016
At GBF. Lacing, off-white, thinnish head, more or less clear, pure amber robe. Aroma of damp cloth, melting butter, caramel syrup, dried apricot, apple peel, hazelnut, dried flowers. Clean, English fruitiness in the onset, hint of dried red berries, some green banana here and there, softish carbo, slick caramelly malty middle, tad nutty with a toasted accent, herbal and floral hoppiness in the end, gently bittering. Very classic and traditional English bitter - probably better when cask-conditioned, as usual in this style.
