leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Light gold with a white foam. Aromas are marmalade with toast malts and nice fresh grassy notes. Jammy with candy sugar and mellow grapefruit. Flavours are sweet, jammy lemon and apricot with a fairly restrained grapefruit and lemon bitterness to finish low toast malts with some residual sugar. A decent hoppy brew.

Douberd (2228) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 4.2% Pours a golden coloured beer, with a crystal clear body. Small white head with low retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and sweet, with honey, pears,reminds me of gummy bears. Taste is malty, with grass, a bit of apples, sweet at first and just a bit bitter on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, very low carbonation, making it a bit watery. Mildly dry palate. Overall okay, a bit boring.

Bottle from M & S. Clear gold pour with no head. Aroma is quite grassy, strong tea like aromas, honey malt notes. Taste is sweet, honey with tea like leafy bitterness. Palate is light-medium bodied with very light carbonation. Easy drinking and refreshing.
