3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle, 75cl) Cloudy, light-amber colour with a big and slightly off-white frothy head. Yeasty and slightly sweet (cara-)malty aroma with an aromatic hops character with notes of citrus, pine apple and piney accents, accompanied by spicy notes of cinamon. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a mild carbonation. Soft (cara-)malty base with fruity and piney hoppy accents, leading into a dry and lasting hop bitter finish. Pretty good. 12.V.10

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours murky amber with a big, frothy and light bubbly off-white head. Fair duration. But like many De Molen beers, it does not a little unrefined. Aroma is yeasty (as the looks might tell), grassy hoppiness, some sweet malts. Medium, yet rather prickly carbonation, fair light and dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet at first, the hops presence is grassy and light flowery. Mild bitterness. A tad yeasty in flavour as well. Good, but lots of hops don’t hide all the apparent yeastiness of it. Otherwise good class, especially the lingering bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Lovely hop showcase.
Loads of carboanation, a fairly neutral malt base to give the Saaz hops plenty of room to play. Flowers, grass, long lingering aroma.
