3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. Very hazy yellow beer. Thick and creamy head is white. The aroma piney-resiny and slightly citrusy. Pale malts and a hint of toffy but the hops are dominating. Some nuttiness in the woody dry finish. Very bitter and lingering flavor is woody dry. Soft carbonation and smooth texture with powerful hop bite. Great beer with impressive bitteration. Top class drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
from old notes Billowy, lacy white head over a lightly cloudy, golden beer. Sugary pilsner malts and light grains lead into spicy-earthy hops. Firmly bitter against thin but sturdy malts with a lingering, almost cloying, hop aftertaste. Creamy, light body with fine carbonation.
Reminiscent of Duvel at times; the bitterness lacks direction.
