avdboom (8) - 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!
