Aroma consists of various citrus fruits, light caramel, slight pineyness. Appearance a dull orange with a fine abundant white top. Taste mirrors the aroma and backs it with the bitter of the hops. Palate is thin, spritzy and refreshing.

Great beer but pushing the style limits a bit. Whatever, it’s an awesome beer which showcases the hops well.

Colour: Bright orange with a firm head. Nose: Lots of fruit (grapefruit, banana, mango, orange). Grass-y and fresh. Flavours: Dry and bitter with underlying tones of exotic fruit and subtle malts. Lively carbonation. Feels slightly watered down, possibly due to the low alcoholic strrength. Finish: Long, fresh and bitter. Verdict: Nice bitter, but a bit too much IPA for my taste.

330ml bottle. Copper/amber with minimal head and lacing. Caramel, orange, lemon zest pine, yeast, vanilla. Maltier and sweeter than the aroma led me to believe. Fruity and smooth with a very mild finish.

0,3 liter fles @home. Erg veel koolzuur. Maar wel een lekker bier.

No se si es que llevaba 1 año embotellada, si fue el transporte o si era final de un lote, pero por lo que fuera, yo creo que ya estaba medio pasada: Demasiado carbonatada, sin aroma. No se detecta ningun rastro del amarillo. Se bebe pero es muy justita. Si algun dia pruebo otra igual cambio mi valoracion, pero con esta he quedado muy decepcionado, y lo peor es que no es la primera vez que me pasa con una De Molen. Un desastre de nota y aun asi creo que estoy siendo generoso.

Nice one! Pours a orange beer, hazy liquid with a minimal white head. Smelled like grapefruit and orange. The tasted initial was light bitter to medium bitter with a nice long duration. It has a light body, dry sticky texture an average carbo and a bitter finish

mansquito (4053) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Capone’s, Norristown bottle: (Amarillo and Sladek) Pours a copper color with a white head. Aroma is nice Amarillo hops, with a sort of earthy dirty edge. Taste is nice and properly bitter, with plenty of excellent hop flavour. The low alcohol did not make it too light. Flavor was still quite big.

Braastad (429) - FINLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Hazy orange witha massive head. Piney, soapy aroma, but not that fresh. This is a year-old bottling according to the label. Taste is floral, bitter. Seems to have coffee too (?). Tight bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 2x33cl bottle, 2 weeks apart. Sladek & Amarillo. Good basic and typical amarillo floral citrus bitterness in a tasty light lager-like ale that lacks some malt backbone to carry all the hop goodness. Tastes a bit like a modern watery excuse to showcase the hops, lacks harmony to be a convincing EU-PA. 2nd tasting: got a more balanced taste out of it, nice balanced bitterness, but still somewhat stingy amarillo fruitiness compared to the aroma.

dexcansino (486) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2013
(lúpulos: sladek y amarillo). Una cerveza rubia con gran corona de espuma blanca muy densa. Con algo de posos. Cítrica, naranja, refrescante, ligera y seca. Muy buena.
