Orange golden colour, white head. Slightly sweet aroma, some caramel, lots of malt, some touches of hops. Malty flavour, rather sweet, nice notes of bitter hops. Quite dry and hoppy finish. Nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
7th March 2010. Hazy gold beer. A little light white frothy head. Typical lagerish malt nose. Rich malt with a little caramel in there - turns fairly hoppy bitter for a Pils. Dry crisp finish with the malt turning creamy. Full flavoured Lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Het Warm Water, Brussels. Shared amongst the London crew. Hazy golden with frothy white head that diminished. Very grainy on the nose. Hints of citrus and spicy hops but it’s all very subtle. Rough on the palate and gym locker funk in the finish. Tough to drink.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From Het Warm Water in Brussels. Given how good the other Girardin beers are, this was a bit of a disappointment. Orange gold colour. Very cereal on aroma. Perfumed bitterness on finish. Don’t like the malts much or the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In a Girardin snifter at the Warm Water in Brussels. Hazy gold beer has a sweetish white-bread nose. Nice firm bitter taste with a dusty cereal sweetness. Lively and refreshing but more hop character would be welcome.
