neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear copper with a small beige head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has big caramel notes, along with grassy hops and a touch of fruit. The flavour is medium sweet with lots of toffee and an herbal, grassy hop accent. The finish is medium in length and balanced between grassy hops and toffee malts. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky-syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent bock. 2014-08-23

Pours a hazy wooden-copper colour with a small, creamy head. Beer is slightly thinner than the head, sporting a soft carbonation and a quick finish. beer smells earthy - yeasty/grassy aromas. Hops are definitely more present than malt in both aroma and flavour; A mostly bitter taste os paired with a light sweet and sour flavour - likely the malt?s contribution

Pours a nice fairly clear brown, with hints of red hilights. Thin head. Not much lacing. Aromas of sweet chocolatey malts. Light refreshing mouthfeel. Tastes of malts, some grains and even a hint of chocolate milk. Overall this is a nice seasonal from Amsterdam. A nice patio beer for the craft brew crowd. I’d buy it again.

A decent tan-coloured head tops a decently carbonated deep mahogany base for this doppelbock that was poured from a 500-ml bottle. Munich, Vienna, Pils, Melanoidin and Caramunich malts combine to give this 7.3% alcohol spring seasonal a malty aroma with a hint of caramel. It uses a strain of Danish yeast and Hallertau hops and has a 30 IBU. There’s a bit of nut in the flavour. This full-bodied beer is aged three times as long as other Amsterdam products and leaves a mildly spicy aftertaste and pleasing finish on the palate. Considering the alcohol content, this goes down down very easily.
