My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
13.0 points overall
AK Original Bitter (bottled)
Style 7 - English Bitter
- 15 points - Beer #26-2131, The Liquor Collection, Honolulu HI, August 11, 1997
Amber, moderate carbonation, low head. Smells like melted butter. Fruity diacetyl maltiness all the way through. Strangely well-balanced.
Special Reserve Anniversary Porter (bottled)
Style 9 - Porter
- 11 points - Beer #26-2133, The Liquor Collection, Honolulu HI, August 11, 1997
Dark red-brown, moderate carbonation, OK head. Smells sweaty. Sweet, black, some roasty flavor in the middle. Strange yet familiar hop flavor...I wonder if Samuel Smith's uses this Bramling Cross variety.
Special Reserve Oatmeal Ale (bottled)
Style 5 - English-style Pale Ale
- 12.5 points - Beer #26-2138, The Liquor Collection, Honolulu HI, August 13, 1997
Amber-brown, moderate carbonation, very little head. Smells of fusels, diacetyl. Lots of diacetyl taste, with a bit of "Smith's" flavor. Good body, fairly smooth, but astringent at the end. I don't know...maybe it would grow on you. "Oatmeal, crystal, and pale malts...whole leaf Golding hops".
