2/8/2009 7:57:40 AM As De Molen Amerikaans: Cracked Kettle. Golden body with medium head. Solid nose of grapefruit, honey. Taste of citrus, grapefruits and malts, with caramel on the back. Quite hoppy. Fruity finish.

Muggus69 (2119) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 13/11/14 Labeled as Amerikaans. Creamy white head atop a hazy copper body. Aromatic hop nose - lots of floral herbs, grass & spice, citrus rind & pine, touch of caramelly malts. Medium-to-full body, nice touch of malt chewiness, moderate carbonation. Doesn’t quite explode with flavour but nicely tempered flavour on the body - once again grass, floral spice & grapefruit/lemon rind. Bitterness somewhat subdued (for style), lingering spice to finish. Not too shabby - fail to see how it’s a Bitter of any sort though.

Lore (2175) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2016
hazy amber colour, medium sized creamy, slightly yellowish head; aroma of peach, tangerine, orange zest, some caramel and bread notes; taste is also dominated by fruitiness (peach, grapefruit, tangerine) with adequate amount of bitterness, some bready notes and pine resin; excellent beer, though for me, it’s more like an APA than a bitter

American pale ale (apa) de 4,5 % abv, pour 10° plato, et 37 ebu. Malts pils et cara. Houblons sladek et amarillo. Exemplaire à mi-validité pour 2 ans préconisés par le brasseur. Couleur ambre pêche (23 ebc), à la clarté nette. Bulles très fines, partout assez vives et quelques moyennes par à-coups. Mousse beige clair, à flocons moyens, nappage stable à 2 mm. Arômes de houblons fins, malt riche, agrumes, pointe légère de citronnelle, et touche de framboise. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la très belle entame malt/houblon avec une nette touche de tabac. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume ciselée, quelques touches de trèfle. 2ème avec houblon fleuri et pointe de baies rouges, airelles. Arrière-bouche très fine, complexe, incisive. 3ème avec des nuances ultimes sur le houblon et l’amertume. Arrière-bouche très longue, délicieuse. La longueur donne une infinité de nuances et d’assemblage, du bois de pin, mangue, lichee, groseille blanche, et. Jambes fines, groupées, serrées. Levure fine, construite, un peu épicée, très belle ligne. Alcool : malgré son faible niveau, il agit à très bon escient sur l’amertume. La finale se déguste à tous petits flots, qui sont chacun de purs moments de bonheur. CONCLUSION : l’apa bien réalisée est un chef d’oeuvre comparable aux plus belles ipa. Nous en avons la démonstration ici … Qu’on se le dise !!

Nonshaugen (438) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2016
De Molen Amerikaans, 33 cl, bottle conditioned, bottled April 2014, so it’s a bit old at the time for this review. Golden orange, slightly hazy, thick creamy white head, nice carbonation. Stunning! Aroma is slightly woody and grassy, hop notes may have faded away. Mouthfeel is bitter, dry, foamy and carbonated. Not much to say about the flavour other than the restrained citrusy and grassy hop notes. Would be very interesting to compare this one head to head with a Licht & Lustig.

Draft pour at Little Beer Room in Hong Kong. Orange clear and white head. Mild bitter and hoppiness but a nice apricot and tropical side to it.

Bottle. Solid bitter and a nice refreshing light brew on a hot afternoon. Will have it again after I mow the lawn.
