Bottle at Zuideterras, Antwerp, Belgium. I had this and Loz had Rodenbach unfortunately I hadn’t had an awful lot of this before Loz decided that her beer wasn’t for her and nicked my one. Poured a light brown colour with a decent head fruit, hops and malts dominate the aroma, taste is a little more of the same with some bitter sweetness thrown in for good measure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Amber color. Medium head. Good hoppy aroma with lots of fruit and decent malt as well. Rather sweet flavor, more than usual for the type. Good fruit and hops as well, though. A touch of honey and a bit nutty too. Not as dry as the good English types. Some citrus as well. Good hop finish, quite bitter. Really good, though a touch below the top stuff.

bouteille, brun/ambre, mousse beige/rousse
Arome de maïs, malt cara et qcq fruits, orge et sucre, maïs donne ce côté trop doux, un peu de malt torréfié. Pas mauvais mais vraiment mon idée d’une pale ale que je pensais être un peu plus amer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Small white but lasting head. Clear amber body, what a beauty ! Lovely barlay aroma. Proper bitterness. Rather high alcohol percentage for a pale ale but it suits it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Exceptionally clear dark amber body. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet and syrupy, with some toffee-apple-like fruitiness. Mildly hoppy at the end. Attractive but a little dull and cloying. Way too sweet for the style and for me.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ some restaurant in Brussels. Rated on 13.4.2009
Aroma has sweetish malt with caramel. Flavour has caramel with hints of salt. I was hoping a good pale ale to get a pause from all of those Belgian ales – but this appeared to be rather far from a pale ale. And had even some elements from a Belgian Ale...
