fonefan (43888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012

Draught @ 4th Borefts Beer Festival 2012, Brouwerij de Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, cucumbers, earthy. Flavour is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO. funny but not very balanced ...

On tap at the Craft. Tried this at CP&K on Monday but it was nearing the end I think. Much better here at the Craft. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Light palate, semi dry - fresh. Mellow fresh cucumber with some mild floral notes. Well integrated with some juicy tangerine - orange hop. Finishes semi dry with a reminder of the cucumber. Decent and inventive.

Can I put in a request for a Carrot Porter?

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 cask at grove bar ... golden amber ... thin white head ... soft floral hop nose ... oh my god ... its cucumber ... no really its cucumber yeah theres more going on here ... but its cucumber ... wow

well unless the brewer was pulling my leg, cucumbers were added at every stage, including a whole cucmber to every cask.

This is definitely my NUMBER 1 beer that i want to retry at this moment. amazing, just amazing

again with Gin added ... well this is odd.. it just seems to bring out the cucumber nose keg at de molen ... golden thin white head .... soft cucumber nose ... much more bitter cucumber ... soft and easy ... less sweet than the cask i had ok 3.6

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold with a light, white head. Pale malt nose, light straw. Light sweet flavor with definite cucumber character and some white sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with a bit more cucumber, hay, pale malts. Really good. The cucumber blends seamlessly into this beer. (3.9)

Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear gold with a weak, white foam head. Almost nothing happening in the nose, faint grain and straw only. Nice flavor, lightly sweet with very true cucumber character, some toasty dough. Light bodied with very low carbonation - it’s almost flat. Light sweet finish with some oily cucumber, faint toasty straw, light grass and grain. Condition seems a bit lacking. (3.4)
