Alpha King has a very complex, malty-hoppy nose, with hints of marmalade and pine sap. Flavor is very rich and malty up front, with a big bitterness building into the mid-taste. The beer has a bitter, herby finish with thyme and burned-sugar notes.
Hitachino Nest Beer is deep reddish amber, with a light tan head. The aroma of sweet fruitcake with herbal hop notes greets you, while it has a rich and tangy malt profile with dried fruit sweetness.
About 1001 Bottles
Sheryl and Ricky are both bloggers, but have never blogged together. One day Sheryl sent Ricky a URL to a book titled 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die. When Ricky saw that book, this blog was born. So they began a journey of trying all 1001 beers. One bottle at a time, they will search for, purchase, drink and review for your pleasure. From this bottle to the next, bottoms up!
