Borresteijn (5478) - Zaandam, - NOV 18, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Almost clear dark ruby amber colour, dense orange/yellow-ish head. Aroma of bitter oranges, clementines, some citrus, leafy hops, sweet malts. Flavour is quite sweet, malty, sugar, bitter oranges, firm but smooth hoppy bitterness, a bit of toasted malts, firm bittter finish. Full-bodied, smooth, a tad too sweet imo. Not my favourite style of beer, but this is quite good. Cheers Thomas, always enjoyed having a beer and a chat during your shifts, good luck on the study!

Check this tasting, Odense 2015. Cloudy amber with a tiny white head. Big malty aroma of bread and toffee, with herbal hops and a little black tea. Sweet malty flavour with pretty good complexity, but a little too much sugar sweetness
