the aroma of citrus and pine needles with hints of fruits and pepper... the taste of tropical fruits - mango, grapefruit and apricot, with notes of pine and spices... bright hopping... bitter and dry aftertaste...

Backlog rating. Keg at the Kings Arms tap takeover, London. It pours a clean amber color with a small white head. Aroma is softly hoppy, fruity with dough and yeasty pepper and esters. Taste is medium sweet medium bitter, with fruity hops, pine cones, ripe apricots, mango and citrus. Finishes dry and estery with yeast notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, quite good although not really brewed to style specifications looks like

Bottle from the Fynes Ales brewery shop. Pours hazy amber with a frothy off-white head. Nice sweet pine aroma. The taste is juicy tropical fruit with moderate spice. Lacks a bit of malt backbone. Otherwise good.

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.

Shared with + thanks to AdamJackson & tderoeck! Sampled draft @ ‘t Schooltje. Golden, small white head. Light clean De Molen hop nose, citrus, light herbal. Light floral. Clean herbal, citrus, tad floral De Molan taste, faint lavender. Tad light body. Typical De Molen beer in a good way, this is quite nice.

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

SinH4 (644) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 31, 2014
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.
