Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
Clear yellow-brown beer with a nice frothy head. Smell is wood and resin, with subtle grainy caramel sweetness, touch of leather. Typical German bitterness. Dry bitter beer, reminds me of a British ale, but dominated by typical German feel. Touch of caramel, alcohol. Orange peel finish. Nice. Interesting choice of hops, very original.

Douberd (2612) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
(Christoffel Nobel) Stubby bottle, 330 ml, poured into a glass tankard, ABV 8.7% Slightly hazy body, deep golden in colour, with a big white head on top, thick and with great retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma of malts, heavy on the straw, light alcohol, some grains. Taste also of malts, sugars, light grains especially on the finish, very notable alcohol, giving it some medicinal notes, straw but also traces of hops. Medium body, carbonation on good levels. Quite good, packing an alcohol punch.

0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a rocky white head that dissipates quickly. Interesting hop aroma, resin and herbs, with some alcohol. Initial flavor is medium sweet, this quickly transforms into a nice hop flavor, both floral and resiny. Finishes with a good amount of bitterness that almost balances out the sweetness, and a nice warm alcohol flavor. Mild but fizzy carbonation with a medium-full body and a fairly sticky texture. Overall, a decent hoppy ale, which isn’t so easy to find in the Netherlands. Has both nice hop aroma and flavor with enough malt to balance the bitterness. This used to be one of my favorites brewed in NL, but the original company went out of business and the new version isn’t quite as good.

androman (511) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Clear to hazy golden yellow color, medium white head, good lacing. Aroma floral, lagerish in the nose, flavor is fruits, malt, candy sweets, syrup, honey, cereal, vanilla, slight citrus and hops. Alcohol is quite well hidden. Taste medium to heavy sweetness, lightly bitter, hint of citric sourness. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, sweet lagerish finish with some IPAish and spring beer notes. Refreshing, easy to drink, very interesting, but a bit too sweet for me.

tricksta_p (1355) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Aroma of malts, hay, fruits, hops. Flavour is light malty sweetness with some nice hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Yes, sort of like a strong Pilsner, but superior because of the potent hops.
