3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good dense & fine, just yellowish tinted head, leaving little lace over slightly veiled copperish orange beer, well-carbonated. Sweetish nose, with something akin to vanilla; alcohol obvious. Fresh herbs, malty. Dry, malty flavour, lightly toasted, getting a bit more sweet warming up in the oral cavity, with a finish that is again drier, featuring a citrus-ike very fine point of acidity. Medium bodied, slick, seems well-carbonated, alcoholwarming quite present. All in all well-balanced, better than many’s the BA. beer - and jenever usually doesn’t add much tastewise.
