COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lots of people said to us we should make a lower alcohol beer, a more easy drinking session-like beer. We at Rooie Dop agreed and made a promise. Here it is: The 24/7 Session Ale! This member of the Rooie Dop family is clean and very hoppy. Saaz hops from the old world balancing out the epic Citra hops from the new world. A beer with less than 5% alcohol, session drinking all day long!

Countbeer (4728) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Funny thing, today at the Eindhoven Beerfestival the lads of De Rooie Dop told me that the keg was a bit old and let me taste a bit from that keg. It tasted more planty and dusty. They told me the bottles atthe store, they brought along, were only 3 weeks old. So to taste this beer fresh, I got a bottle right away. And hell yeah this one is nothing close to planty and dusty but fruity and bitter! Very good! Medium sized vast and slowly changing, sticky creamy foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange colored beer. Aromas of load of hop fruits: peach, apricot, mango, pine apple, some grapefruit, hop flowers, herbs, fruity herbs, tea herbs, some cloves, fruity malts and crispy! Flavours of hops, herbs, cloves, mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit, bitter, yeast, some leaves, fruity floral tones, light malty tone and some fruity herbs that come from the fruity hops and yeast. Lovely fruity and bitter! Aftertaste is bitter with lot of (bitter) gruits, herbs, some porridge malts and creamy hay. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a creamy texture. Marvelous beer! Whether they come from The Netherlands or not, this is better than the Laugar Hop Shock!

McTapps (4575) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour with airy steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and sweet citrus fruits. Taste of mild hops, oranges, lemonade, flowers, dust, nuts and straw. Sweet, caramel-like finish. Too sweet for me but otherwise quite nice.

MichaelAwesome (4574) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2014
A nice and classy apa with a decent hoppy start and some grass, citrus in the Aroma. Easy to drink with some bittersweet moments. Quaffy all the way without being rocket science.
