2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear golden copper with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that dissipated quickly and had some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a floral hop and a musty yeast with notes of dried fruit, caramel and banana.
The taste was lightly sweet and a bit malty with a mild caramel note from the start and finished with a crisp mild hoppy taste and had a hint of fruitiness at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time with the malty sweet fruity flavor left behind.
Mouthfeel was very light in body and a bit watery in texture with a good lively carbonation.
Overall a pretty generic Amber Ale with a great drinkability...

Tasted at some Brussels beer cafe. Almost forgot to add this after my Belgian beer trip. Taste is a bit too sweet for me. Something like caramel. Might be better with food.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best, relatively ’normal’ Belgian ales out there. Perfect to just drink and not worry too much!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Barwa bursztynowa wpadająca w brąz, klarowna. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała. W aromacie przede wszystkim palone słody. W smaku trochę karmelu, owoców, słodycz jakby sztuczna. Wysycenie zbyt wysokie, goryczki praktycznie brak.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From draught at Asbury Festhaul & Biergarten. Clear and light brown/yellow color. Dried candy flavor. Malt, roast, yeast. Not too enthralling in any way.

Reddish light and clear pour from draft at bottom lounge. White head. Pretty gross. Dank fruity flavor. Makes me cringe a little.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Clear golden-amber pour with a small foamy head that fades to a film. Aroma is grainy with a light generic fruitiness and flowers. Tastes like smooth bready malt with grass and light esters. Boring but better than american macros.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear pale gold with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is bready caramel malt, apples and stone fruit, grassy hops. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light to medium bodied, moderate to low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (2/5)
Is it a requirement that all beers called “Special”, suck? (9/20)
