Pretty nice discovery while visiting Utrecht. I didn’t know this brewery but they have quite some good beers. Different than the usual watery beers they serve in bars. Nice balance between hops, malts and alcohol. Drinks away nicely , but stays a far to gentle beer..

Idiosynkrasie (5319) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Minimally milky, amber colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Mellow malty, fruity, hoppy aroma, diffuse fruitiness, pome, berries, hints of citrus fruit. Taste is moderately to plentiful sweet caramel malty, citrusy hoppy notes of orange and mandarine, bitter hoppy overtones, minimally peppery spicy hoppy finish; soft carbonation, smooth palate. Nice and simple, a veritable figurehead of the style.

Ambra intenso, mediamente limpida, bella schiuma bianca frizzantina. Aroma di malto e spezie, un po’ sporco. Eccellente bevuta con ingresso di malto e finale amarognolo di luppolo. Bene la carbonazione. Un’ottima amber ale.

[9/23/15] Draught at Craft & Draft in Amsterdam. Slightly hazy amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, a bit of candy, and some stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, a bitter hops finish. Medium-bodied.

jamaty (1541) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 7, 2015
Ambar, marrón, turbia. Espuma abundante ocre. Aroma ligero. Acaramelado acompańado de alguna leve nota herbal. En boca presenta cierto equilibrio de predominio lupulado aunque la base es acaramelada. Herbal y con notas resinosas. Bien de cuerpo y gas y amargor notable, sobre todo al final.

The new wave of Dutch craft breweries are beginning to tackle every style in existence it seems, in much the same way the American craft beer renaissance highlighted long forgotten styles. This is Maximus’ take on the American amber lager style, maybe inspired by Brooklyn Lager, a familiar sight in the Netherlands nowadays? Anyway, tasted this at De Goudse Eend in Gouda, thanks Stefan for sharing. Lacing, thick, snow white head, hazy amber robe. Aroma of caramel, dough, wet straw, hint of gin and some burning plastic (perhaps DMTS?). Clean, crisp onset with only some malt fruitiness (not unexpected from a lager, of course), medium carbo, smooth mouthfeel consisting of supple caramelly malts; the American twist, rather than an original Vienna lager character, comes forward in the long, spicy hop bitterness in the end. Interesting beer.

Drinking from tab. In the aroma coffee. The unclear orange beer has a small white head. A nice bitter taste, hop bitterness. Medium carbonated.

Fľaša 330 ml zo Seoul Plazza Bratislava. Pomarančovo zlatá kalná farba, hustá krémová biela pena, ovocno chmelová vôňa. Stredná rezkosť, príjemne vyvážená sladkasto horkastá chuť, ovocie, na konci jemne alkohol.

Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Pale amber coloured, small off-white head, dusty caramel nose. Moderate malty, caramel, mild fruity and grassy with notes of hops and honey. Rather strong bitter finish. Nothing special here.

MelvinKalksma (298) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2015
Aroma: Mostly hops, citrus, flowers, caramel. Appearance: Amber/brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and, thus, a steady white foamy head. Taste/Palate: Again mostly hops, carbonation, spices, caramel, citrus, bitter finish. Overall: This is my first beer in this category, but it is really close to pale ales in my opinion.
