2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours unappealingly pale. A pretty dry palate with just some citrus notes to break that up. Disappointing.

Bottle. Blonde. Lemon and a hint of grass in the aroma. Slightly yeasty, grassy flavor with citrus notes. Alcoholic. Moderately sweet, but also soft and velvety. Decent but simple.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy all around; phenols in the aroma, sugar and sour in the flavor moderately, some pepper, yeasty beer, sharp. I kind of used the beer at the end as a real swisher to see what would happen and my mouth got really spicy. Lots of lacing man. Spicy yeasty - again - sticks with you and lays it on heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (some random bar, Bruges)
6 Sweet perfumey malts.
3 Mid gold, healthy persistent head
6 Lovely soft perfumey malts and hops. Quite clear real hops, but still very malted
3 If it wasn’t for the residual sugars, this would have a thin palate, but it does have carbonation that fits well with that level of sweetness. Finish fairly crisp, and with fresh green hops.
13- Very easy drinker. A hoppier version of Leffe, say.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light golden coloured, a very nice big head. Smell is earthy, good spiced. A lot of taste, but not really that good. Unpleasant dry biterness, hops, to much spices, earthy, light citrus.
