3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 0,75 litre bottle. Aroma has hops and some caramel. Sweetish hopbitter flavor with caramel and toffee. Just a bit thin, but a good lacing. Recommended.
Re-rate:sampled both at the brewery tap and at De Gouden Leeuw St Lievens Houtem. The brewery (free) sample sufferd a bit from diacetyl. The S.L.H.-one had a beautiful hop character and a refreshing citric flavor. Grapefruit aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is honey, malt, herbs. Taste is sweet malts up front with a little bitterness on the finish. Not sure why this gets such low ratings.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised by the low scores here. This ain’t no fancy tasting beer. But it is an excellent drinking beer. It’s a light, crisp, dry pale ale with more noticeable bitterness than biscuity malt presence. Begs to be gulped in quantity. Not surpisingly, better fresh on tap.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.16oz at Toad in the Hole. Hazy amber with medium fizzy head. Spicy, leafy-herbal, and slightly metallic nose. Firm carbonation and crisp bittering cut deeply into the gentle toffee and vanilla base. So gassy it almost fails to refresh, but the fine lingering hopping does me right.

Piwo tylko z wygladu jest ladne obfita piana i trwala, metnosc spora. W smaku malo wyraziste, ale spodobal mi sie ten posmak jakby kwaskowaty i cierpkawy po przelknieciu.

Consumed at Kulminator Cafe in Antwerp, 2002 bottle. This pale ale poured with a massive white head that dissipated quickly. The color is darker than most pale ales. Mellow flavor, medium body, high carbonation, with a slightly bitter finish.
