2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 500ml, bottled in Poland. Light brown cola-colour, live with bubbles floating up a long time after pouring. The head is long and sits on the sides of the glass. Faint aromas of sth. sweet, berries, sugar? Quick attack in the flavor, sparkling hops and yeast. Long finish. No too good, better than an average lager but absolutely nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap - Kantij, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Reminiscent of a better Yuengling lager. Clean aroma, a little ’cheese sharpness’ to the flavor, no metallic flavor, a little ’bottom yeast/corn’ flavor still. PRetty and reddish-amber. I thought it was a lager though, not a belgian ale, so I’m docking it a few points for being a weak belgian ale rather than an above average lager...

Not as good as De Koninck (you can read my review of that one to get a better grasp on what I mean). Amber. Malty. Watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Draught. A dark copper coloured beer with an off-white coloured head and some decent lace. The aroma is malty but there is some straw like bitterness as well. The taste is nice and malty with crunchy cereal like flavours. I have always liked this beer in the past and find it the most British of all the Belgians. Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 3.0
