2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at fantastic Greek restaurant and this bottle labeled Athos, so I’m disappointed not actually a Greek beer. Pours yellow with white head. Nose of grains and lemon. Tastes of bitter lemon peel, grainy, Some yeast, and floral. More like a pale lager than ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 750 ml, bought in Greece as Athos, vintage 2012. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.5%
Pale golden orange colour on the body, a tad hazy, with a tall white head. Good density, good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Very nice fruity aroma, full of peaches and apricots, belgian yeast and sugars.
Taste is nothing extra-ordinary, malts, yeast, but still pretty good. It shines its most on the aftertaste, with fruity peachy notes, alcohol also a bit notable there. Mildly bitter.
A bit too high on the carbonation, with a bite on the tongue. Body is medium thin. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall another good beer from Het Anker, and although its a par lower than any other I had from them, it’s still on high standards, the aroma alone is to die for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Lovely floral perfumey blond aroma. Massive vapoury palate, some esters, but some solventy or alcoholic aspects. Reminds me of childrens’ coloured pencils - must be the paint. Too solventy and heady, but the finish is lovely mellow soft grains. Add all the yeast to mellow it, and rein in the headier aspects.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20130810) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and honey. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A weak brew for a Het Anker one but still not a bad beer.
