AshtonMcCobb (6055) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Appearance - its a gusher. Then the remaining three quarters of a pint settles quite nicely and amber. Nose - biscuits and a hint of toffee. Taste - toffee and biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. On the edge of astringency but ok. Overall - ok in the end.

Alengrin (4892) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
At GBBF. Bitter with creamy, thick, off-white head and deep, almost clear, orange blonde colour. Aroma of toasted bread, flowers, biscuit, dried berries and some iron. Lightly fruity onset, bit toasted, creamy and somewhat buttery mouthfeel (clear diacetyl - it was the first pint from a newly installed cask), elegant hoppy ending, florally aromatic and spicily bittering. Nice bitter.
