UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 (Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Tribute to Shakespeare, 20160903) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had earth, sulphur, grass and honey. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were grass, grain, earth, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had straw, malts and bitterness. A bit weird brew but still nice.

Alengrin (6013) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015
At GBBF. Ordinary bitter with coarse, snow white head and hazy ’old gold’ colour, perhaps a bit paler than usual for the style. Aroma has hints of pear, flowers, overripe peach, toasted bread and sweaty grains, the latter not disturbing me too much in this case. Fruity taste, graininess softened by a sweeter, fuller caramel character but subtly so, slight sourish hint, bit metallic, mild grassy and floral hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.
