3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark yellow. Off white head. Nose is nice. Simcoe? Chinook? Clean American pale ale. Perhaps corn and gingerbread as well but it’s pretty close to an American pale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bacchinalia. Golden brown with a slight haze and massive, massive pillows of white head. Sharp floral and piney hop aroma. Slightly earthy note. The taste is not as bitter as the aroma may suggest. Instead the taste starts bittersweet and gradually moves toward an edgier bitter. Fresh clean finish. The palette is shockingly weak but I’ll forgive that. All in all a wonderful session strength beer from de Molen.

Bottle at home from ales by mail
Will it gush? First signs are good but I get overly cocky and it fobs on the floor. Rich fruity pithiness, hazy dark amber with pillowy white head. Gentle carbonation, fruity, rich shortcake, mandarins in a pithy finish. Pushing a 3.8

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange color with nice amount of foam. Mostly floral hop notes in the aroma. Taste is bitter, smooth, but still sorta light. Very light body. Interesting, but not exactly my style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 2,69). Bottled 02/04/14. Pours a near clear amber with a retaining and lacing frothy-soapy off-white head. Nose is floral, resiny, biscuity and citrusy recalling American Pale Ales, with only a bit of malts behind the Amarillo. Taste is less fruity-floral, or rather completely lacking any, instead packed with earthy-grassy-spicy notes coming from Sladek. Body light, carbonation near flat, palate dry. Kind of a confusing brew with a personality crisis - I have previously enjoyed it in company, without pondering and wondering about it, maybe even straight from the bottle, but now... mjah. A somewhat dull crossover beer.

Grosse mousse avec une belle persistance.
Goût fort de Amaraillo, impression d’amertume accentuée par le goût du dry hopping.
belle réussite !

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear yellow-amber with a big, white head. Aroma is very hoppy and pale ale-like, and has that watery malty bitterness. A little grassy, and has some fresh, exotic fruits. Taste is again pretty watery and with different bitter notes, both hoppy and more plain, classic english style bitterness. Malty grainyness as well. Low body and medium carbonation.
