_angst_ (2786) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on October 7. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a big white head that dissipates rather quickly while leaving lots of traces on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty and a little stale. It’s rather subtle but I can detect honey, grass, spices and bread. Taste is very metallic with lots of iron. It’s slightly sweet and rather malty with some dried fruit and yeast. Finish is dry and metallic.

75cl bottle from Carrefour. Great looking bottle. Poured a very appealing orange amber colour. Overall, a fairly bland ale with something of a grainy hit in the finish. A bit of yeasty spice, not much hop. Nothing wrong with this, but not quite sure what all the fuss is about - could be that it is a well balanced session ale (like De Koninck or some English bitters) which are highly drinkable and awesome if you’re brought up on the taste? But then it’s nearly 8% and not moreish enough for that. Don’t know, but it’s worth trying I guess.

Not bad. Looks nice. Smells ok, a little bread. Tastes ok - full mouthfeel. But it’s only ever going to be ok.

Cerveza rubia con sabor dulce y ligeramente especiado, no muy amarga. Se le nota el alcohol al final.

Bottle @ deans crappy music tasting. Aroma is yeast, flowery hops, some malt. Flavour is mild bitterness of hops, some flowery notes, touch of malt. Okay I guess.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Backlog rating 1-14-2009 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer poured a small white fizzy head that had poor retention, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, one ring of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is sweet, spicy and coriander. The Taste is sweet, spicy and bitter. The Palate is spritzy and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, I did not enjoy the taste of this beer so it is not a beer that I will drink again.

Tanky taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Almost no head. I’ve been drinking a lot of good Belgium beers lately and this guy just doesn’t hang out with the big boys.
