3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber body and less stable head than I hoped. Start English in malt bill and general appeal. Herbal and pine hops. Biscuit malts with low sweetness. Malty taste yet lots of dark bittering hops. Warming alcohol. The beer isn’t as fresh as I hoped or expected, even though I picked up this bottle from The Netherlands directly not long ago.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with a rich and frothy off-white head that leaves quite some lacework. Very spicy and herbal hop aroma. Rich body, quite some sweet caramel, greasy, intense, herbal hops leaving a solid bitterness. But totally lacking in hoppy complexity. 300514
