3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Elegant thirst-quencher from one of my favorite breweries that has been sold under different names. This rating is based on a 75 cl bottle under its original name Anker Blond. Loosely structured, off-white head, colour a warm golden blond with not too obvious clouding (yeast); aroma of apple and pear, coriander, cloves, honey and a hint of cognac; taste fruity with a soft pilsener malt basis, pure, subtle spiciness, smooth and rounded mouthfeel, finish mildly hopped and medium long.

Had it as ’Vossen met den Meynen’. Anyway, it’s an average Belgian blond beer. Yeasty, with some fruits and herbs. Nothing too exciting.

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.
