Ruikt lekker zoet. Weinig schuim. Heel lekker zoetig bier, vrij licht. En nog goed voor de planeet ook toch?

Bijl (274) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Amber/geel, helder, witte groffe schuimkraag.... Aroma is matig Karamel, iets metalig alkemaal heel mild. Nagenoeg geen hops in de aroma. Smaak wederom wat metaal, beetje karamel mout, beetje hops (ondanks de 3 gebruikte hoppen) en een matige eindbitter die niet lang doorzet. Op het einde zoetig en plakkerig. Beetje waterig....beetje koolzuur. Het is allmaal wat karig.

Bottle. Moderat malty aroma of caramel and toasted. Heavy yeasty aroma with notes of banana, cooked vegetables, soap and herbs. The flavours starts light sweet but finish moderat bitter. Light alcoholic finish. The body is medium and the texture is thin. Average carbonation.

TheFoamhead (261) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2016
Nice copper color, white head dropping quickly. Heavily oxidated, full metal jacket in aroma and taste plus a unpleasent diacetyl taste. Bah. In addition to an overpronounced sweet malt body, this beer is one of the worst I’ve had from Gulpener.

DutchMark (363) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Not bad but not very interesting. Clear golden with a small head and medium carbonation. Not too sweet but the flavor is dominated by the malt sweetness. There is some metallic element and some hops. Body is a bit thin. Overal it it is very drinkable but lacks depth of flavor.

mercarood (13) - Capellle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2016
De eerste lentebock van de nieuwe brouwmeester. Zachte hopsmaak. Fris doordrinkbaar met een bittere afdronk

mariuspoenari (1691) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear amber pour, with a thin white head. Smells like boiled malts and a very small amount of bitter hops. The taste follows the same notes, overly sweet, with a bit of metallic bitterness.
