4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl. bottle sampled @ Brugs Bier Festival 2013. Lightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose carries light, soft citrus with a mellow yeasty side to it, light fruits. Taste is mellow floral, citrus, sweetish fruit, touch candy, herbs & spices, light grains. Light, easy to drink. USA hops but apparently this is meant to be more in the British side. Idd as mentioned, not a bad session beer comparable to a British cask bitter. Idd don’t come expecting an American style hoppy offering here. One of the finer ones tried at the festival.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head; pale amber-copper beer. Nutty, and sweet smelling as rosewater. USA hops, amandine, frangipane, but SWEET. Light hoppy-rosewater flavour. Again suikerbonen met amandinepaste. Very light body, bit sticky if not really slick. Bit light, sweet. Misses a bit of hoppy bitterness to give it some bite. Come on, Marc, Centennial and Cascade...
