Bijl (149) - 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!
