3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from SS! Thanks! Pour is a overcarbonated very lightly hazy straw gold, with a HUGE white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is phenolic smoke, light detergent. Taste is more smokey, peaty, astringent malt bitterness. Just OK.

Draft sample. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate soft smoke and yeast aroma. Medium body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smoke sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Little head. Very nice big smokey peaty nose. Nice in the smell, but its a bit intense in the flavor. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation, lightly slick, sort of drying. Crackery, kind of musty malt flavor. Bigger, sort of lingering bitterness, and a dry finish. Nothing for the smoke to grab onto here. I suspect this might have had a brighter hop profile when fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a huge frothy white head. A gusher in fact. The aroma is smoky malt with a hint of caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a liqourice toffee caramel malty palate. A nice enough beer. Shame about the gushing.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
pours clear blonde, 3/4 of my glass is foam. and i poured to get the least foam possible.. seriously.. that shit is redicolous !
its very new to me that there actualy is a translation of the tittle on the label itself. also wanna nopte ; i HATE smokedís . i bought a whole bunch of de molenís when i learned to know them, withoud knowing whats what.. apearently, theyíre not all like hel en verdoemenis, so they piled up . now i need to drink em, so i drink a de molen each day . this is day 5 , i believe. thats why i rate a beer i KNOW i wont like, probably..
smell is a bit smoked indeed, also bitter
enters realy sweet, but aftertaste is heavy smoked shit . the backgorund ( wich you almost do not taste) is decent ( a regular de molen blonde beer) but damn, that smokyness ! YUCK ... i expected the worst, so iím glad thereís a bit more to it as well, but the smoke side IS very, very heavy in the aftertaste...
i could eather chug it , so i onley have the aftertaste once, and get myself drunk faster ( able to drink less ! ) or just drainpiour it, no aftertaste anymore, and on to a good beer. think thats what iíll do .
iíll say it again, IF you like smoked beers, this might be good to you . but to me, this is undrinkable. so i rate it that way . cause ratings are personal .
