Hermod (3005) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2013
33cl bottle, bottled on 17.07.12. Copper color, thick beige lasting head. Aroma has cocoa, bread and light plastic notes. Flavor has dark bread, toastedness, with chocolate kicking in later on. Smooth mouthfeel, bitter finish. Enjoyable but not much fruitiness. Light aroma. Medium bodied.

Nice hoppy nose on this beer, and has a nice dark golden hue. Not as vibrant on the palate as I expected, but still a beer which is still rich and very drinkable.

Cerveza tipo IPA, con su amargor característico. Poco gas, aunque no le hace falta más. Queda una ligera capa de espuma y deja un sabor bastante bueno.

harrisoni (13215) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy ruby colour with lasting beige head. Earthy hop and some sweet candy malts. Good american amber style beer with that spicy rye flavour. Yep a decent beer. Some earthy grapefruit on finish from the cascades. Fine

Beautiful head - it just keeps growing! Lovely lacing too. Very carbonated. Soft toffee malt with hop accents on the nose. Nice, warm rounded bitterness initially with a decent heft of toffee biscuit malt.A spicy rye finish. Not particularly dry or expressive in the finish. I really believe De Molen are at their best with the big beers and I prefer my WCIPAs with a lighter, less malty body. Still it’s decent.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Euston Tap, Euston 5 Nov 12. Mørk aprikosfarget. Litt uklar. Veldig høyt skum når en kveller høyt. Betongskum. Fester seg til glasset. Syrlig aroma. Mye kullsyre. Prikker på tunga. Ødelegger smaksopplevelsen. Oppfatter litt ananas. Svakt syrlig avslutning.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 30/XII/12 - 33cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 17/VII/12 (2012-1412) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, small off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, sweet peaches, sugary sweetness. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, hint of caramel, fruity touch if not much, bitter hops. Aftertaste: very bitter, dry, some orange peel, bit grassy, some honey, sugary twist.

33cl bottle, shared with 77ships, Martinus and Tderoeck. Bottled on 17-07-2012. Cuivrée, léger opaque, col épais et crémeux beige. Arôme est malté caramel, seigle et biscuité avec un bouquet houblonné moyen contribuant de fines notes de fleuri et houblon citronné. Palais est bien malté, caramel, seigle avec l’ajout des houblons Cascade et Amarillo qui procurent une certaine note amer fruitée tirant vers une agrumes modérée. Dry-hopping se ressent et paraît un peu surfait.
