2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
20 Jun 2005 - (Inge B&B, Haarlem) - Slight sweet hop malt aroma. Clear orange golden colour, low head and lacing. Sweet malt, a bit simplistic, with spiritous hop flavour. Sickly sweet hop lingering finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 30 cl) Amber coloured and filtered with a thin yet somehow quite insisting head. Wonderful, malty nose. And the malt continues all the way through colliding with the hops in the finish. Distinct but not overpowering bitterness. Reminds me of some of the better, Danish Easter brews. 010799

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden with small bubbly head. Malty-sweet, perhaps too sweet, cereals, grass, well-rounded and easy-drinking. Thanks Jbrus.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
30 cl bottle, bbe Aug 05. Light amber, clear, weak head. Malty and cheesy aroma. A very unusual flavour mixing bread notes, sharp hoppiness, sticky maltiness and something undefinable. Complex, sweet, bitter and light acidic on the palate. Thus, tastes better than it either smells or looks like.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the brewer’s better beers but I’d rather be drinking something else. It poured a bronze colour with a slim, fleeting head. The aroma promises spiced peaches. The palate is syrupy and very smooth but with a decent alcoholic kick. Toffee notes and some honey. (Bottle)

An amber beer with a small white disappearing head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, honey, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and honey - a lovely flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, just yellow tinted head, slightly irregular; dark golden beer, some cold haze. Grassy and "fines herbes" spiced nose - just a bit roasted as well. Sharp initial roasted taste. Very malty beer. I would have expected more herbal, flowery and certainly more honeyish notes in the beer. But, as the label says, only "sugars" have been added. Medium bodied, slightly slick mouthfeel. I’m a bit disappointed by tthis. Grolsch can do much better - they’re one of the few larger breweries with some imagination left. It’s a sweet Helles Bock, nothing more.
