2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
25cl bottle. Bronze body, minimal head. Weak caramelly and minerally aroma. Weak caramelly taste with minimal hoppiness. Shockingly bland - the ale characteristics are all muted, this could very well be just a caramel lager.

A glass in Antwerp. Clear dark brown/amber with white head. A tasty beer, really reminded me of Smithwicks but I think Smithwicks just has the edge. Light carbonation, some sweetness. Very tasty

Karamelliger Geruch. Ziemlich trocken, leicht astringierend. Herbe Hopfenaromen. Recht bitter. Fester Schaum. Interessant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ De Zon, Goor. Golden oldie. Been drinking this since about 30 years, but not in recent times. Clear copper color. Uneven off white head with reasonable retention and lacing. Aroma’s: fruity, caramel malt, slightly bready. Flavor: grain/malt, ever so slightly sweet. Light bodied. Finishes with a slowly developing mild bitterness. Solid, but of course it was much more special back in the days.

12oz gusher. Nice transparent nut brown color with small white head and sporadic lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel deep fruit malts, it’s so rich and pretty amazing. Flavor is mostly amber malts, nice creaminess, and sweet finish. I like it.

Pours reddish with some active carbonation and then head dissipates to near nil.
Very little lacing. Taste cherry and malt, sweet overtones, but well balanced. Had a bottle of Grand Cru Rodenbach prior to tasting this, so anything would probably taste somewhat sweet after that sour experience on the palate. This is a very delightful drinkable beer.
