Osprey87 (2061) - - MAR 24, 2013
March 2013 - cold bottle, dated 28/11/12. Enduring head. Very subdued smell. Taste - watery, some caramel malts, very mild citrus, finish is slightly sharp, not much bitterness, low carbonation. A bit boring because of how watery it is. Falls below normal De Molen standards.

Bottle @ home. Pours an orange slightly unclear beer with a good creamy white rocky head. Smells fruity. Tastes fruity, silky and watery. Average carbo, thin body and a watery dry texture.

reebtogi (4402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
330ml bottle pours a dirty golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves some nice foamy lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some grains and caramel. Taste is a grainy caramel malty sweetness with a bold pine and grapefruit hop bitterness finishing dry on the palate. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Quite hoppy for the style, but still an enjoyable brew.

ctiry (100) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 19, 2014
Clear amber colour with nice white head. Hops aroma full of pine, citrus, grass hits you in the nose. The taste is not that bittet as expected from the aroma. It is very nice bitter with taste if citrus and mango. Decent carbonation. Light body. My first De Molen beer and I am happy to start with this one.

sharkydodson (327) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 28, 2014
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...

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy gold with off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Nice bitter taste, with leafy, grassy citrus. Pleasant easy-drinking bitter.

teorn88 (3121) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
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

gegwilson (1478) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
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.

AdamJackson (2889) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2014
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.
