2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium, very uniform white head over slightly veiled, finely bubbled old-golden beer; faint lace. Lactic nose, with a bit of astringency announced. Thick-set, nearly immovable head seriously hampers smelling. Bit wry-bitterish, yet grainy flavour, as bread gotten wet or made with poor quality flour. Bitterness, thankfully not exaggerated, is crude, metallic, indifferent. Feels fizzy, very highly carbonated. Rather light body, faintly slick. Probably too bitter for the average private (=soldaat), but IMO completely to the image of the Lord Mayor of the honourable LeopoldsBurgh: crisped, embittered, and utterly dull.

16/XI/12 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 6/IX (2012-1275)
Clear blond beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: bit grassy, floral, candi sugar, not a lot of aroma though. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: citric start, pretty bitter hops, ripe fruity touch, grassy, bit floral. Aftertaste: yeasty, very bitter, almost, chemical. Not too bad!
