From Het Anker Brasserie in Mechelen, not sure if it was from the tap or the bottle, poured into a Lucifer tumbler. Nice fruity aroma, yeasty. Actually tastes very mild and a little disappointing. Basically its a mild and pleasany special brew. Too plain, but alright.

Het Anker Lucifer Pours pale straw yellow with a thick pillowy head and good retention. Aroma is somewhat full of cloves and some bubble gum notes. Unfortunately there was some band aid aromas as well. Flavor was pretty good with some mild Bazooka Joe bubble gum. Finish was dry with some mild fruity esters and a little cardboard.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and hot hay aromas. Sweet and bready upfront turning to hot cookie in the lasting finish.

Had this from tap when it was ABT beer of the month April 2010. Didn’t smell like anything special. Taste was just average.. Not bad, not good. Easy to drink.

yngwie (13948) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle. A more or less clear one, straw to golden in color and with a dense, white head of moderate size. Some lacings. Fruity, alcoholic nose with grainy hints and a spice touch. Pale malts and lots of white sugar, some wheaty toffee too, and a spiced hint. And of course alcohol. Medium body, sweetish yet rather dry, and finishing with a pleasant bitterness. A beer that seems to be made to compete with Duvel, but it’s far from that good, rather edgy actually. 110624

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
[Bottle @ YardHouse] Clouded golden appearance, good head formation. Plenty of yeast and coriander spice in the aroma. Banana yeast, malty palate, fruity, alcohol noticeable a little excessively sugarry. Drank this as a third beer and found it to be a little too sweet, a little cloying. Might have tasted better as a first on a warmer day.

Clear golden pour with moderate carbonation. Big head that leaves a little lacing. Dry clean finish. Decent and totally drinkable.
