I must admit: brand beer is not my beer. Nothing wrong with this beer but I just do not get happy from it.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow to orange with a small white head and an aroma of toffee, brown sugar, sweet malts, banana, citrus and spices. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a serious amount of hops for a mainstream high-abv beer. Medium long bitter finish. Pretty nice.

Heavy blond. Goes quickly to the legs. A little sweet but nicely compensated by the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Redelijk bier maar flink hoppig. Hier moet je van houden. Mijn vrienden heb ik er geen plezier mee gedaan.

Bijl (196) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2016
Goud geel, helder, witte schuimkraag die snel zakt. Aroma: Mouten, iets zoetig, kruiden, een hint van vers brood, iets gist / banaan en iets fruitig. Smaak: Mouten, gist, banaan, kruidig en peperige hops, bloemig, tikje zuur. Een redelijke nabitter en een kruidige licht bittere afdronk met flink wat alcohol. Medium CO2 en medium body, afdronk is droog en tikje bitter. Best redelijk voor een massageproduceerd bier.

avdboom (9) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016 does not count
bread, cereal, grass, dough, banana, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, Quite nice a beer with the sweet and bitter in harmony. For my taste I like a bit More bitter, but this is a good midle of the road in bitter/sweet/alcohol/Body if you aan me. Not bad for a mass production beer!
