Caramel, fresh & fruity aroma. Some candy-like notes. A bit of vinegar too? Amber color, little head. Slightly flat body. Lingering metallic bitterness. Very average. (gravity pour at GBBF 2003)

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2003
(Cask) Slightly hazy amber. Creamy 1cm head. Nose of caramel, caramelized malts, Maillard. Strange off-taste, like mouldy malt. Caramel. Meaty-yeasty. Light to medium-bodied. Just OK. Uninteresting. Brewer ought to reinvent the brewers' fork - or another way of heating his mashtun.

An easy drinking "real bitter". The hops produce a fruity palate with an impressive bitterness to finish. As a bitter should be.
