zeer fris, thuis geproeft. zacht bitter aroma met bittere caramelachtige moutsmaak. Ook is de bitterheid lang na te proeven in de afdronk. Veel gelijkenis (iets bitter) dan de Palm Speciaal

A balanced, mild and slightly boring ale. Drinkable in a session sort of way, and I can see drinking this all day at the lakeshore while soaking bait. No flavors jump out at me. Mild grainy goodness, slight hop finish for balance. Decent though.

Bottle, 500 ml, brown
No head, lively carbonation, very nice deep amber colour, Aroma of malt, plum, Flavour; malty, sweet, fruity, some caramel and apple, lagerish but the taste is deeper and "fuller", smooth and medium to full bodied, yeast, very nice to drink, nothing disturbing.

Reddish golden with a fizzy white head. Faint Belgian yeast aroma. Crisp bready taste with some fruity notes and a grainy finish.

Bottle that I picked up from somewhere, somehow in summertime, to quote a Simple Minds lyric (coz I think I got it last summer) Pours amber with large white head and a steady persistent rising of bubbles. Started off a bit malty but finishes with some bitterness, it’s a bit mellow, safe and thin, ok.

02/03 I believe this is what I had, as the label was different. 0.33 l bottle, which poured copper body with bigger brownish head. Aroma was of caramel and brown sugar, with some yeast; pretty simple yet pleasant. Flavor...nasty, a bit metallic, rotten vegetables...I don’t know what to say, really dubbed would I rate it at all, but here it is, and I will surely rerate this as it is very likely to be spoilt bottle.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smallish white head. Light amber body. Sweetish caramelly aroma with notes of straw, very faint. Sweetish straw and malts taste with faint fruity notes. A bit fruitier and warmer than a lager, but really quite similar. Some catty, rubbery notes. Aftertaste is dry and wooden without much news. Some chalkiness. It’s all right, but a bit boring. (0.33l bottle at Cardinal.)
