This is a light beer. This is a refreshing beer. This is a dry beer. This is a thirst quencher. This is a nice drinking beer. Even if the hop bitterness is quite strong, it shows an interesting balance between floral, citric american hops and herb, tarty european hops. A soft drink side taste may attract the masses - I would have appreciated if it wasnít there. The finish is not as bitter as you might expect but itís the basic bitterness that stays in your mouth - the rest fades quickly. This light pale ale tries to cover itís lack of body with an interesting mixture of american and european hop notes. This makes the beer refreshing without making it too complex. A nice thirst quencher for a sunny day on a dutch terrace - and so much better than the dutch mass production lagers!
