Simonsen (923) - NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gusher. Mærk ravfarget,uklar. Enormt mye skum. Smaker malt,humle,karamell,honning,grapefrukt,furunål. Ganske god, men keg synes den bar ganske dævv. Sansynligvis fordi halve inneholdet sprutet ut på kjøkkengulvet når jeg åpnet den, og resten i flasken ble til skum. Tror jeg må rate denne på nytt en annen gang

NikkTwist (2142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB.

Tap @ de Molen. Hazy amber to copper color, medium head. Aroma of some caramel malt, toasty, grassy hop, bit spicy, floral. Medium sweet in taste, only slightly bitter. More belgian feel to it than english. Boring for de Molen.

dexcansino (519) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2013
Cerveza de color ambarino, con una densa y cremosa espuma de color amarillento. De olor y sabor acaramelado, con un marcado malteado y equilibrio entre el dulce y el amargor.

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2013
330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Initially a very earthy aroma, quite like bramlin cross, later, however, after it’s settled in the glass, it’s quite sweet. Has some pungent hoppy hints too. Lovely in the mouth, a great bite and gentle tingle from hoth the hops and the carbonation. Nicely attenuatated. Quite green and fresh hops in the taste, delicious roasted grains, very bready, but not sweet. Love that finish. So crisp and a great noble hop bite. No sign of 7.5% - classic de Molen!
