This one pleasantly surprised me. Poured from a bottle. Honey orange color with little head and minimal lacing. Aroma is orange citrus and floral. Taste is citrusy with light clove. English malt flavor is subdued accompanied by mild hop bitterness. Overall, well balanced. Mouthfeel is moderate. Fairly smooth drinking - could easily be a session beer.

Douberd (4630) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2015
(Diamond Bear Pale Ale) Bottle 355 ml, from vipinvelp. thanks! New US state. Served into a shaker. Dark orange colour on the body, little activity in its clear body. One finger of creamy off-white head on top, with okay retention. Lots of caramem malts on the aroma, light toffee, light grass, hints of hops. Nice taste, caramel, toffee, cookie dough, some hops, metallic finish wiht light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good carbonation, mildly dry on the palate. Not bad, honest pale ale that can be drunk the whole day out in the garden.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from BVery, poured into a shaker. Hazy deep golden with small white head. Aroma is pilsner malt, light body, light carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt, hay, and some herbal hops. Not my thing.
