Beige creamy head. Amber to copper color, cloudy and not pasteurised. Aromas are mostly malty, some fruits and sweetness, alcohol is present. Tastes mostly like it smells, but hops are a bit more evident. Moderately bitter, herbal and floral hops. Some honey notes. Alcohol makes it a warmer. Medium body. Clean in its style, although not the best from De Molen in my opinion.

Lore (1031) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 25, 2014
hazy brownish orange colour, morerate sized, dense, long lasting yellowish head; aroma of caramel, overripe fruits, floral hops, and hints of honey; taste of intensive maltyness, caramel, honey, fruity notes, some grapefruits and hoppy bitterness - a bit like a barley wine with lower amount of malts and hops - a BARELY wine :-)

Yeasty and lively beer with a body of caramalt and bitter hops. Bit grassy and dry palate. Like a yeasty saison.

Pours a medium brown into a pint glass with two inches of head. I can’t recognize any fruit or other aromas besides malt when smelling which might just be my inexperienced palette. But the taste is between an English bitter and a pilsner, typical of the saaz hops anyway. Lighter than a stout with medium carbonation. Quite a bit of sediment. Decent but I wouldn’t seek it out on purpose. De Molen has better beers out there.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Craftbeers Privatimport. Fruktig och maltig, något kryddig, alkohol, ganska hög sötma, karamell, toffeetoner, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är söt, fruktig och något besk.

PhillyCraft (3165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
On tap at Monks Café, pours orange brown with medium sized head. Aromas and flavors are caramel and sweet malting, light honey, yeast, and hops. Finishes with hop and English tasting malts. Lighter to medium in body. Not too bad but got overshadowed by the Bo and Luke.

Bottle at home. It’s an English strong ale eh? Well, can’t remember a better one, more traditional ones but who gives a fuck about that? I love this stuff. Amber with a thick yellowed off white head. Nice aroma of malts, some strength, berries, caramel. Flavour has some spice, citrus and hop bitterness, also with a non English yeasty notes. Yeah.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, fruchtig, blumig, Gewürze. Geschmack leicht röstmalzig, fruchtig, trocken, blumig, würzig.
