On tap at Schiphol. Deep clear amber, medium head. Fruity and nutty caramel, semi-sweet. Not bad for a macrobrew.

Een gezoet bier, met schuim dat snel wegtrekt. Misschien te kenmerken als een lichte bockvariant.

JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle in Geneva, probably looted by Lakshmi at a trade show. Deep amber colour, quite low carbonation. Malty and a little boozy, quite heavy and sweet, mild bitterness. Not bad but the sweetness is a bit hard work.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Amber ale, deeply red with yellowish foam. The taste is very malty with heavy notes of yeast. Hint of prunes, raisins, maybe some red cabbage (?); very full body and a lot of everything that it includes. The aftertaste is a bit lackluster - an awkward shadow of the main taste. However, the oldest brewery of the Netherlands know what they are doing.

Pours golden brown. The store said ’mild and bitter’ but the aroma is more sweet and caramel-like than I expected. A slight bitterness is still recognizable though, it’s an enjoyable beer.

henkjanwiegers (120) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2014
Pours a golden color with an offwhite head. Looks like a rich pilsner. Aroma is a little stronger, fuller than lager. Taste is sweet, at first like a bock, but then more honey or syrup-like. Pleasant bitter twist after swallowing. Not bad actually.
