Légère, agréable. Le houblon amarillo est décidemment un bon parti pour le houblonnage à sec. Manque éventuellement d’un peu de corps et de richesse aromatique pour être vraiment remarquable. Elle reste équilibrée et maîtrisée.

Gangstergafje (252) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 The beer has a beautiful orange color with a soft white foam head. The beer is very cloudy. The color is like an IPA or Pale Ale. The smell is really sweet and full of citrusy hop flavors of the Amarillo. The smell is really refreshing. Unfortunately the taste is less great. The citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo, which is clearly present in the smell, is almost not present in the taste. There is a lot of bitternes, almost to much. In the finish however there is a little of the citrusy sweetness of the Amarillo hops.

Hazy golden, lasting white head. Nose is peach, pine and tangerines. Body is light, carbon light, texture thin. Taste is bitter. Palate is fruity and hoppy. Fresh. Bitter aftertaste. B@Leerdam

Une bitter américaine de 9° plato pour 4,5 % abv, et niveau ebu de 42. Elaborée avec du malt pils et cara, du houblon Sladek pour l’amertume, et de l’Amarillo en late hopping. Couleur roux moyen abricoté (ebc de 23). Voile de levure assez dense. Bulles fines en colonnes sur les parois, vives. Mousse blanc cassé, qui forme un nappage superbe à 2 mm . Arômes de malt grillé, agrumes douces, avec un zeste d’orange. Merveilleusement fleuri et équilibré, je reste de longues minutes à humer ce parfum subtil. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur un malt clair, amertume très plaisante, fleurs blanches. Arrière-bouche de grande saveur, fleurs de haie. 2ème sur le malt grillé, bonne tenue du fruité avec un fleuri distingué. Arrière-bouche bien fraîche, longue, précise. 3ème sur un malt finement grillé, bois de chêne blanc. Arrière-bouche très précise, sans faille. Longueur d’un admirable équilibre, douceur, saveur. Jambes un peu marquées, et lisses pour une autre part. Levure bien nette, un peu épicée, poivrée, très belle veine. Alcool tout à fait opérant sur les saveurs, et en préservant l’amertume. Finale au nez toujours aussi merveilleux, et avec encore d’autres nuances en bouche. Il faut la boire par toutes petites touches pour percevoir toutes ces nuances. CONCLUSION : la bière du retour des beaux jours (28 ° aujourd’hui), avec son cortège d’agrumes, son beau houblon, son malt finement grillé. Mais le nez d’entrée, qui se retrouve d’ailleurs à la finale, mérite déjà à lui seul quasiment un 5, un parfum digne de Dior ...

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 7, 2015
Very light amber color with a disappearing white head. Very strong aroma including grass, hops and some citric notes. Flavor is predominantly bitter with a dry long end and a clear yeast feeling.

Zlotta (310) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2015
0,33 l bottle, bottled on 12/6/2014. Clear, amber with a thin, soapy, white to tan head. The aroma is of orange, tangerine, honey and hints of caramel. Very nice but not that strong. Sweetish taste of honey and orange. Okay. Thin to medium body, a bit watery, average carbonation. Short, only slightly bitter finish. Nice beer - especially for 4.5 % - but not world class. Maybe that this beer breathed too much air in the supermarket if I read some of the other ratings.
