On cask at Castroís Lounge. Hazy deep brick red, smallish non-diminishing off-white creamy head. Third day on cask. Grainy and floral aroma almost obliterated by harsh butter. Taste is quite sweet, not much butter or alcohol; floral. Average body, mild carb, quick sweet floral finish. Ehhh.

Smells like caramel, very sweet aroma. Fairly soft carbonation and a tiny bit of astringency on the aftertaste. Another average product from Amsterdam - sometimes I wonder why I bother. On cask at Castroís. Thanks to garthicus.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Castroís Lounge. Pours a murky amber-brown with a small diminishing frothy tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, some diacytl, very light hops and some light sugary sweetness. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, nuts, light hops and some light sugary sweetness. Average bodied. Not a fan of the style and this wonít change my mind, itís mediocre at best and I had a hard time finishing a pint.
