3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice APA. Has the fruity hops of an American beer, yet also the yeasty full body of a Dutch beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ABC Beers The Hague. Pours cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet malts, hops, ripe fruits and somewhat floral. Taste is moderate sweet and light tomoderate bitter. Medium body and quite fizzy. Too sweet, maybe chinook single hop isn’t a great idea.

330ml bottle. Clear, orangey, dark golden to amber colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweetish, caramel malty aroma, a piney hop touch, fruity hints of raspberry, cautious spicy yeasty overtones. Taste is initially moderately sweet caramel malty with dry hoppy overtones, later minimally tart and dry hoppy, fruity notes of plum and raspberry, some husk, a spicy yeasty touch.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Very yeasty, looks greyish with hardly any head, and smells a bit weird. Taste is OK, but I probably will never drink this again.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Berts Bierhuis. Hazy orange colour, medium off-white head. Nose is malty, honey and caramel, sour, lots of sweetnes, indeed maybe unfermented or residual sugars, as noted before. Flavour is very sweet, caramel, fairly bitter, herbal. Finish is very bitter and very sweet. This is really not good at all.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange to brown pour, thin white head. Aroma is of wort, unfermented sugars, grains and earth, some faint sweaty hops. Flavor is quite sweet and overly grainy with sugars, malts and fruity hops. Low carbonation. Completely off balance. Something wrong with the yeast?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a broken white head. The aroma is rich, fruity and with a little yeast. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a spicy hop bitter, yet surprisingly smooth palate. They went overboard on the Chinook perhaps, but it’s not such a bad beer at all. This one was room temperature and i’d like to try one a little cooler which I think would suit the beer.
