3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A coppery beer with a big and blond head. The nose has caramell, citrusfruits, peaches and some wood to noticing to aging. Taste has less caramell than aroma, pine, some fruits, wood, at least medium bitterness that is there also in the long aftertaste. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Not too good as I expected, strong caramell but too less of fruits, also quite old bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel, light tropical fruitiness and some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Caramel sweetish APA - way too much caramel for me. More amber ale than an APA.

Mooie caramel kleur met een goede lichtbruine kleur kraag. Ruikt honing, caramel, vanille, crème en hop. Prettig zoete geur. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, honing. Goede bittere nasmaak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dense off white head, slightly orange; deep amber dark orange colour. Smells a lot of caramel, malts, sugary, a bit fruity, fruit peel. Tastes caramel, orange, then biscuity hoppy; quite present sugary sweetness, then medium/high bitter citrus piny long finish. Average carbonation, quite consistent sticky body, long lasting citrus biscuity finish. That’s a nice (also for being a 100% regional ingredients), smooth and drinkable APA
