dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2007
Low alcohol beer, with lot’s of hopflavour. Fresh in the mouthfeel, golden colour, a little watery maybe, but the oparoma’s are the best i’ve tasted in a bitterlager.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Sold as "Engels" in the brewery tap in Bodegraven. 5% ABV. Golden color, hazy. Aroma has coreander, hops, citrus and flowers. "No coreander in there"’, says brewer Menno Olivier, "but I’ve used Zatec hops for dry hopping". The beer only has 22 EBU, but thanks to the dry-hopping it seems much more. Light hopbitter flavor with flowers and citrus. Lovely beer, I especially liked the aroma. 8 3 7 4 15 = 3.7 Bottle. Orange blonde color. Grapefruit, wood and raspberry in the quite outspoken aroma. Dry-hopping, no doubt. Pleasant hopbitter flavor with grapefruit. Dry out effect. Fairly long hopbitter aftertaste with grapefruit and red berries. Excellent beer!! Re-rate: Corked bottle, tasted feb 09. The color has become just a bit darker. Thin, but the American hops are clearly noticeable.

Many, many thanks to Edo for sending this my way.. I never would have thought to ask for it. Poured just slightly hazy golden with a bit of orange hue to it.. short, swirly cap of white head. The aroma was soft and seductive with lemon and sweeter bread upfront.. dry, tart lemon zest built up behind it.. subtle hints of earth, peppery spices, and honey also made a presence. The flavor had bready and pale malts at the core surrounded by an ample dose of lemon zest and earthy bitterness.. sticky, refreshing bitterness on the finish. Very dry on the palate and lighter-bodied.. refreshing. I sure wish this was available locally.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear, vibrant gold with a foamy, white head. Nose holds caramel, citrus and grass. Has a very clean flavor, lightly sweet with straw, lemon, and grass. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Crisp, mildly dry finish, with a bit of spice, faint bread and caramel, and some light, grassy hops. Utterly drinkable and refreshing. Great.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Golden orange amber with a frothy, lingering, lacy, off-white head. Smells of citrus orange hops, peachy fruit with light pine and medium malt. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet malt with soft yeast and a general fruity hops with a bit of pine. Medium sweetness with a soft bitterness and a fruity hoppy lingering finish.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Remarkably extracted honeyed malt flavours. Pour is medium amber, murky and topped bu a massive white foam. Fresh citrusy hops blend into nectar while grassy and brown sugar notes are unveiled and developed in the second half of the palate. A very successful brew. Delicious sweetish, yet balanced palate. Different than what the English are doing, but better than most.
