3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem - Muddy amber color with creamy head. The aroma has a moderate hop fruitiness, mango and light oranges; very nice. Smooth mouthfeel brings out some caramel flavour with an accent of cereals and toffee, quite strong bitterness, but cloying bittersweetness towards the end.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 ounce bottle - Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: A darkish, tan-colored beer with a slim, scant, ivory-hued head.
Smell: A scent of moderately toasted bread crust and flaked rye with a thin edge of sweet-scented caramel to it. Hops give a little orange, a little grapefruit as well as some spice.
Taste: Sufficiently sweetish, caramel glazed maltiness, predominately toasty with a subtle undertone of rye and vague, mild nuttiness. Citrusy, spicy, minutely resiny hops with ample bitterness to balance things out. The carbonation is livelier than expected, but it only serves to keep things moving nicely and give a little bump to the beers overall spiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Subtle but rather enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drinking date 07/10/2014 from bottle. Promising from the looks, a little hazy and amber, off white head. Aroma and taste are a bit of a guessing game, hard to define the character. Palate: creamy. Overall: not bad but wouldn’t buy or order again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Drinking date: 6 July 2014) The beer looks good. Amber-coloured hazy beer with a small layer of white/beige creamy foam. Aroma nothing special. Bit of malts, yeast, spices and hops. Taste also nothing special. Just good. Bitter beer but not too bitter. Also spicy taste. The body of the beer is good. Bit soft/silky body. Medium to high carbonation, bit too much. This beer is nothing special. Just good beer. I wanted/expected more hops in this beer. Total score: 3.5!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy deep amber orange color with medium frothy off-white head, nice lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, caramel, mild roasted malt and fruity hops. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by mild fruity acidity and coffee note with spicy mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Good, but a bit too weak on character...

Tap at the brewery. Decent ale, but seriously lacking in character. Needs more work.
