Draught. Real Belgian Ale as it should be. Ambercoloured, full-bodied, with a nice hop-bitterness. Very clean beer as well, no hang-over after enjoying too many "Bollekes" one night.

De Koninck is a smooth, simple little belgian pale ale. Light amber in colour and dry.

Bottled, at the Shakespear hotel.Deep, dark, amber colour, slightly crimson with a slight head. Strong bitter aroma and taste. Short bitter hitter. Probably a good beer, but not for me at this stage of the w/e.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A marginal beer that did little for me. Poured a nice amber color with a three-bubbled head. Nothing there. The aroma was actually kind of pleasant sweet apples, caramel and light summer fruits. The flavor is quite hoppy, but ultimately a bit drab to me. I mean the flavor wasn't terrible, but it just didn't do it for me. To each their own...

You feel a bit sorry for this one. Geez, only 5%, what a whuss. Nice amber colour, bitter nose, but I am not sure what (Styrian Goldings?). It is a good beer to start but not continue a session.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amberish color with no head. Mild hop aroma. Bitter malts in the flavor that is water dominated. Unimpressive.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 COmpletely devistatingly ugly with absolutely no head and a clear ugly dark amber color..brown sugar and yeast make up all attributes of aroma or flavor..malty nonsense with a real watery mouthfeel.
