This was an interesting bottle I picked up. What I hadn’t noticed was alcohol content, over 7% which is the strongest beer I’ve ever tried!

Opening the bottle you do get an almost alpine fresh smell. Definitely has notes of pine in there. However, it goes downhill from there because it tastes what I imagine to be floor cleaner! It’s too strong for me, I’m afraid – it’s more like wine and I’m no wine drinker, much to the disgust of my peers and the shame of my parents.

Alba Pine Ale from Williams Brothers (Alloa, Scotland)
