3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, bought at De Bierkoning, shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy almost pale orange color, medium sized white head that disappears fully within a couple of seconds. Aroma of malts, some hops, a bit oxidised so I guess it’s a bit old. Taste malts, lightly hops, lightly bitter. Nothing fruity really, and again a bit old. Or maybe it has been in the store in the light for too long. So all things considered: I think it’s a decent APA when it’s fresh, but now it’s not that good. Too bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Left Hand. Light golden orange appearance with an ivory head. Dull earthy hoppy, boring nose. A touch bitter flavor from some mild hops but pretty boring light beer.
