2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A decent bitter, but something about it just seemed off kilter. Maybe a little too astringent in the finish (small beers do end up overhopped sometimes).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 25/09/14.
Clear golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose carries light floral notes, caramel, dark fruits, malty pinch.
Taste comprises earthy tones, bitter orange, spice, straw.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter trace in the close.
Ok but a little basic, ticks the style boxes I guess but a good advertisment as to why bitters are way better on cask in order to allow the flavours to develop!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light caramel malt aroma with some noble or floral hop nose. Amber gold color with a white head that wasn’t trying too hard. Near medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. The flavor is something of light caramel with a very impressive bitterness. The finish is pretty much the same, and the bitter persists nicely into the finish. Not exactly crisp, but very, very nice. This is a session beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
(22oz bottle) Crystal clear light amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bready, caramel, some apricot. Taste is mild sweet, earthy, faint caramel. Light body. I can give them credit for trying something that has not been done much, but after the first time it came out this way I cannot understand why they continue to bottle it. Definitely subpar relative to their other beers.

Bottle. (April 2006, 3,2 % on the bottle). Pours an orange amber with a fine soapy-looking yellowish head. Aroma is weak with some caramel and a touch of smokyness. Taste is surprisingly crisp - roasted, smoke and caramel with a little thin bitter aftertaste.
