2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Someone tell me how this very English-looking beer ended up being brewed in Belgium? Nonetheless in spite of the red white and blue motif it pours reasonably attractive, head is there but not dense enough and dies down quick. On the nose is some rotten cabbage, grain and dough, scent of a non-alcohol seems to linger around it actually. The taste is something different, like a vegetable beer, slight grassiness but also some malts in there and all with a dry finish. Donít think it all comes together extremely well, though.

Bottle at De Paas, Den Haag. Pours a dark golden color with almost no head. Aroma is malty, flavor is sweet and bitter in a nice balance. Nice creamy texture and a bitter finish. Nice pale ale.

22nd February 2008. Strong bitter/ale smell belying itís pale ale status. Fairly crisp - malt dominates the slight hoppyness. Lingering dry slightly bitter malt finish. Brings back those misty water colour memories of drinking sub standard ale in the 1970s!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Mid red, small head. Fruity hops and honey aroma, quite pleasant. Touch of glue briefly, and a hint of alcohol later. Rich malty body, a touch sticky, but that makes it fuller. Sweet dark fruits too, nice burnt edge. Nice little bite of hops too. Wasnít expecting much from whatís in theory a a simple beer, but this was as good as many dubbels for its maltiness. Donít drink cold, certainly better at 15C-ish.
