2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yet another beer not on the menu but brought to me by the owner/landlord of the excellent Cafe De Grendelpoort, Valkenburg in Holland.
22 Oct 2012 and I asked if he had anything amber he wasn’t showing in the beer menu: a 33cl bottle of this came my way.
To be honest I found it a bit boring from start to finish and went back to the on-tap Ayinger Celebrator straight away afterwards.
Clean amber pour, with a small white head.
Malts just about rule the nose and palate: broken down I found biscuity, bready and yeasty notes in both the aroma and taste but nothing strong enough to excite my senses.
This is almost bland: of course having it inbetween something as tasty as the Ayinger Celebrator can’t have helped the brew a great deal.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gushes dark amber with minimal head. Great lacing though. Slightly hazy. Yeasty and spicy aroma. Some sugars, slight metallic note. Bit dubbel-like to me. Taste is bitterish and pretty toasty with a nice sweetish and yeasty kick. Mild presence of caramels and a dryish, slightly hoppy and yeasty, almost creamy finish. On the thinner side of the palate, yet still creamy. Medium bodied and lively in terms of carbonation. Nice brew. Not astonishing, but certainly above average.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bitter, malthy, gentle and some 'warmth'. This beer is not that 'heavy' but still gives some warm tones: spices & caramel.
