2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33cl bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Clear, deep golden to light-amber colour with a dense and persistent slightly off-white foamy head. Shy aroma: slightly sweet, light-grainy cara-malty nose. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a lively carbonated mouthfeel. Malt-accented taste, light herbal background; rather slim malty, slightly bitter finish with faint hoppy notes. Average.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep golden colour, small, but longlasting white head, which leaves lace. Aroma is butter and some hops. Flafvour is just bitter hops along with some buttery and caramellish hints. Not very exciting, but indeed refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (Dank an Stefan !): deep golden coloured, small foamy layer, sourish-grainy, a bit papery nose, toasted malt and bitterness detectable; crisp bitter sweet flavour, light bodied; fizzy malty-bitter finish. Not really bad, but kind of bland, anyway.....
