3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! The beer is just called Stoombier according to the label (De Pelgrim Rotterdam Stoombier). Slightly hazy golden yellow colour, white head. Aroma of nice bready malts and classic hops, citrus, dry, chalky. Flavour is light to medium-sweet, malty, bread, citrus, nice dry hoppy bitter finish with a light yeasty note. Light-bodied. Lovely refreshing beer imho, vaguely like a XX Bitter-light.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear light amber, gentle 1cm white head leaving timid lacing. Quite grainy, soft and malty ale with a mild smoky touch and almost no hop aromas. Rather mineral mouth presence with a stoney dryness that hampers the soft and toasted caramel tones. It’s all in lightness and lacks a proper closing act, just lingering grainy notes. Average.

Tap, Doelencafé Rotterdam. Traubenzucker aroma and flavor. Blonde, cloudy. Citrus flavor with the first signs (and maybe even more) of an upcoming infection.Remaining hops in the aftertaste. What has happened to this brewery?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Clear amber coloured with medium-sized head. Malty, hoppy and bit flowery aroma. Hopbitter flavour and finish. Very thirst-quenching. The bartender told me that sometimes (because of lack of time) they also serve the unfiltered version of this beer, which should be better than the filtered version. By the way my Pelgrim Stoombier had 4.5% ABV.

Bit spicy beer, but not really good. The color,however is nice for a beer with this alcohol percentage.
