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

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.

Slaz (46) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
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.

Holmen2 (1045) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2014
Dark amber. Small beige head. Aroma of red berries. Caramel in taste. Good drinkbility. Round mouthfeel. Decent, but not as much aroma and taste as one would expect from a -ator bock bier.

A clear amber color. Caramel and fruit aroma. Burnt caramel, hints of fruit, good balancing dryness from the roasted malts

JulienHuxley (3304) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite malty, lots of caramel notes, light toasted malt aromas, no real hop presence. Taste is sweet, nice toasty bitterness to balance it out, entirely malt forward but not cloying. Decent enough, not particularly interesting though.
