A bitter as many english bitters are. Good character but malts are dominant. Wich is nice if you like it, and I do. Great imitation of the English originals.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Schevenigen. Poured a slightly hazy light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is hoppy citrus. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth spicy hop bitter fruit palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not really a biter for me. A great beer though and so non-Dutch!
