Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Schöne rötlich-braune Farbe, scharf-süßlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist etwas wässrig, danach süßlich-malziger werdend, leichte Ansätze alkoholischer Schärfe. Der Hauptteil ist einerseits angenehm malzig-süßlich, andererseits wässrig und alkoholisch scharf. Der Nachgeschmack ist vollmundiger, angenehm malzig-süßlich, vielelicht schonzu süß. Allerdings fehlt mir die Tiefe – vor allem bei diesem Alkoholgehalt. Es könnte auch ein gesüßtes „normales“ Dunkel sein. Erst ganz zum Schluss kommt eine dürftige Herbe auf.
→ Viel zu langweilig und zu laff. 8+11+9+8

MonsterMagnet (146) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma; sweets, malty, brown sugar. Taste follows aroma with burnt sugar bitterness and a slight sour. No character as far as i?m concerned. Fail.

SVD (480) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
33CL bottle at home, amber beer small head, aroma is malty, taste is sweet/bitter and malts, drinkable and not too bad.

jvhemert (328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
Clearly a miss from Hertog Jan; even if it won the vote by the public. Too sweet and bitterness does not complement this. Drain pour.

VincentKabel (152) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Copper colored beer with a nice white head. Medium carbonation. A slightly fruity and sour taste. With some bitterness in the finish. Decent beer.

Beerhunter111 (6773) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, sehr fruchtig malzig, leicht würzig, alkoholisch. Geschmack trocken malzig süß, fruchtig, alkoholisch, hefig.

keeszorge (27) - - MAR 4, 2014
Roodkoper bier. Matige schuimkraag. Matige afdronk met fruitige smaak. Hertog Jan zegt 'volwassen bittertonen', maar dat kan ik niet beamen. Leuk om een keer geproefd te hebben, maar geen bier om op wensenlijst te zetten.

Sweetish amber beer, with a metallic aftertaste. Not very good, but better than most pilsner.

droef (73) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2014
I have no idea why this one won the battle. I’ts an average beer, nothing else. Foam dissapeared immideatly and it lacks a full body.
