3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown coloured beer. Mild soft and round taste. Average hoppiness that suits for this beer. Typical pilsener bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An atypical pilsner, vegetal, sweetish and sprayed with big bubbles.
Hazy appearance. Subtle herbal hops. Tight carbonation, but rather big bubbles.
This remained well below my high expectations set by a certain Tim Webb. Has the typical sweetish edge that restricts the drinkability of most Belgian pilsners. Celery notes. Vegetal bitterness. Seems like the bottles out there are very variable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Hazy straw colour, large tight foamy head. Spicy and also malty aroma.
Spices include ginger. Soft and refreshing mouthfeel, decent
carbonation. Taste is a lightly-roasted malty body, some tangy yeast,
and perfume and a little spicy too. Slightly hoppy finish, but fairly
mellow on the whole. This is a quaffer - it goes down so easily.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft at the Kerstbierfestival. Bright yellow-gold with a disappearing white head. Aroma is full of sweet corn, just a little buttery. Uh-oh. Light sweetness in the flavor with only very faint bitterness. The corny notes overwhelm the grassy ones. This one comes up limp-wristed and lame. A real shame. A had this brewery’s Slag Lager not too long ago and liked it much better.
