4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. As usual filtered, red amber liquid with small dirty white head. Nose ; strong hop notes of grapefruit and pine. Zest. Some little tart with delicate cherry. Sip ; Low carbonation, low density with oily texture. Moderately sweet bread feeling with strong but well contained hop burst. It develops a fine bitterness, like a grapefruit but still not overwhelming like it is with IPAs. The beer is refreshing and tasty. Pity it’s that expensive abroad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet with caramel malt and also has plenty of pine - citrus hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a huge head (maybe it is past it’s prime). The taste is dryer than the aroma and a tad bit herbal and papery. The palate is smooth. Overall I am not sure if it is right or not so it’s hard to judge but I am not a fan of this bottle.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Nice malty session ale, with modest amount of alcohol. Quite tasty, but tends to get a bit on the bready side after a few. Good starter or second beer.
