3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Beer King split with Booze. Medium head that did not last, and not much lacing. Aromas and taste of heavy caramel, bready malts, lemon hops. Taste was very malty mostly with aomd bitter and strong oily hops coming through as well. Pretty good but too malty for me. The citra was my favorite of the single hops from De Molen.

Bottle. Hazy copper pour, almost no head. Aroma has some rye, a bit of pine, some raisins, somewhat fruity and a bit of citrus. Flavor is slightly bitter, fruity and a bit sweaty. The rye is nicely present, but it’s still a bit thin. Also not a very pronounced hop. Still very well drinkable brew.
