3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No fizz, no fuss. As if you poured whisky and not beer. A very relaxing attitude. Almost no head. You get pure beer. It has a very refined, round taste. Fits into one’s throat very smoothly. You get a slight bitter taste afterwards, a rather plesant one, like that of Efes Pilsener.
This is a beer you would drink and enjoy like whisky and not beer. Not something you would drink more than 2 a day.
Something to drink as novelty, or with its stylish blue bottle, to impress one’s girlfriend. Otherwise, it may not justify itsef at three times the price of Heineken.

On tap at Arends Nest Amsterdam. Clear gold lasting white head. been ages I had a beer this bad. Crappy pale lager. I mean really bad. No redeeming features. It’s awful cardboard city. Vague carbonation sting on finish.

Tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Mostly clear golden shade. Big white head. Features what feels like the dregs of some hop fruitiness and a soapiness running throughout. Some sweetness. Goes down well enough, but quality-wise felt a little below par.
