3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Jopenkerk. Poured a hazy medium brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is yeast, roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a light yeast malt nutty hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. It’s a fine beer but far from being a great brown ale. It needs a smoother richer chewy texture and a more nutty flavour. Now if they brewed something more like the Rogue Nut Brown ale here, then I might be having some alcohol addiction issues :-)
