Excellent beer! Picked this one up at the brewery. Really nice round taste. Nice ale-ish colour. Alcohol is well hidden.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 Had this on my recent trip to Europe. I believe I had this in a bar just of the town sqaure in Haarelm. A okay dort. Page 20 of the MJ Great Beer Guide only 199 of his 500 Classic brews to go.

Sweet malty nose, bit caramel, bread, butter, some citrus, grassy hops, herbs, clear deep golden, rocky white head, good lacing, sweetbitter taste, soft carbonation, thick texture, feels medium body because you don’t taste the high alcohol, average carbonation, smooth bittersweet finish, very well-balanced beer.

omhper (19925) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2006
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Clear golden, dense head. Buttery papery malt aroma. Malt sweet with generous amounts of bready malt and butter. On top of that there’s some grassy hops. An aromatic, very well balanced beer completely relying on it’s excellent malt character.

Grzesiek79 (3303) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Dośc niespotykana mocna zawartość alkocholu w tym stylu. Alkochol dominuje zarówno w smaku jak i zapachu. Od Niemieckich dortmundzkich piw sporo go różni. Orzeźwiające, mało trwała piana choć puszysta podczas nalewania

caesar (5315) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2002
Cloudy orange-brown color, no lasting head. Malty amber aroma. Tastes like the Caracole Ambree, but a bit weaker, and less balanced. But certainly worth a try.

Firm-bodied and crisp. Vinilla-like aroma with a creamy textue and taste.Very strong but very drinkable, so beware.
