Of course I’ve been drinking this since 1986...but not in recent years. Now that the quality of ’t IJ beers seems to be back on track it’s time again. Amber hazy color. Firm off white head with good retention. Aroma’s: caramel, fruity, yeasty, biscuits and spices. Malty sweetness and some tart fruits retronasal. Flavor is only lightly sweet, fruity. Medium bodied. Finishes with a subtle bitterness. Almost like the old days.
