ciocanelu (996) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 17, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Amber color with off-white head. Intense grassy hops aroma and also a white grape note. Taste is fresh and bitter up front. Gets even more bitter towards the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Really nice and easy drinking.

Douberd (4533) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2015
(De Molen Licht & Lustig) Bottle 330 ml at Cafe Samson, Nijmegen. Deep orange golden colour on the body, tall and thick off-white head, with very good retention. Aroma of hops, with tropical fruits, light caramel, fresh grass. Taste is bitter from the first sip, with hops, citrus, tropical fruits, light floral touches. Long lastng bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Very nice.

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 7, 2015
Rather clear copper colour (EBC 20) with a fine poring off white head offering good lacings. Aromas of dank grass, floral-herbs, dried orange peel and a light touch of caramel develops. Finely spot on carbonation developping into a velvet-slick texture and a light body. Light caramel-toast sweetness with moderate light dry grassy bitterness. Medium lasting bit fruity dry grassy finish. Quaffable.

Althaus (13) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 Probada en la Cervecería Kraken. Posee un aroma basado tonos cítricos pero pudiendo distinguir claramente las levaduras. Con respecto a la apariencia es correcta en el color aunque muy turbia. En el sabor podemos apreciar igualmente un toque cítrico, un ligero recuerdo lupulado con retrogusto literariamente malteado. Demasiado gas, difícil de abrir sin que salte por doquier. Probar cosas nuevas nunca esta de mas, esta no lo es.

"As De Molen Amerikaans" aussi ... De Molen, c’est tout de même très très bien. Capable du plus complexe Stout vieilli en fut et à la fois de créer une bière simple, élégante et désaltérante comme celle-ci. Pale mais pas pâlichonne et aussi pas compliquée. Je l’avais déjà appréciée en terrasse à Paris, au début de l’été ( as "licht and lustig" là .... mais je ne savais pas ) Une confirmation donc.

Nez: Malté, caramel, pin Bouche: Maltée, caramel, pamplemousse, pin, herbacée C’est léger, équilibré en résumé très bien fait mais ça manque de fin de bouche quand même.

tricksta_p (3148) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at home, as "De Molen Amerikaans". Aroma of fruits, citrus, orange, yeasty notes, some malt, hint of pine, hops. Flavour is lightly sweet with a dry moderate bitter finish. Well-made hoppy fruity beer, light and refreshing.

Pours a dark amber colour, taste is hoppy and dry. An average example of the style. Not bad
