Me la he tomado para reconocer el lúpulo amarillo. El aroma es floral y delicado pero se ha ido poco a poco. Bonito color y espuma. Ricamente lupulada pero con notas que no reconozco. Recomendable pero no sé si a la nota de Ratebeer.

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinsons Beer Shop, Inverness [081113] Bottled 13/09/11
Amber, clear, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of old lemon citrus, light sweet fruit pale malts
Taste of old lemon citrus, light quite oily pale malts, dry lemon zest, slight grapefruit, hops have obviously dulled after this time but still a tad there and the malt background is light and sweet
Palate - Soft carb, light to medium body, quite oily. Finish - quite dry, then some oiliness, then a dry powdery dull lemon zest finish
Overall - Surprised this was any good after more than 2 years - some weakness in flavour but there’s still a bit of hop in there

Spina @ cantinetta. Chiara con schiuma fine e persistente. Molto secca ed amara, un po' sbilanciata. Non mi ha soddisfatto molto... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

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

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.
