2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear golden ale with a medium white head. A malty aroma. Flavor is balanced, not to sweet malt and not so much more. A straight forward pale and balanced ale thatís OK, but soon forgotten.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. A clear, golden beer with an off-white head. The nose is too grainy, yet it is balanced. The flavor is grassy at start, with hay and grains, but for once it is in a quite pleasant way. Medium body. A boring beer. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7 (070301)
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body with an off-white head. The nose is fruity, more Belgian than British, with banana, some citrus and spices, as well as some yeast. A grainy note as well. The flavor is much the same, but more on the grainy and malty side. A bit thin in the mouth, with Belgian fruityness and spices. Medium body. Nice fruity finish with a grainy touch. A bit on the grainy side, but still refreshing and quaffable. (080504)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head. A bit canny and metallic aroma. Has some herbal and sweet notes. Falvour is sweet and fruity. Loads of apples. A light flowery note. Is a bit light bodied. Has a light herbal bitterness in the end. A bit bland and uninteresting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Fully clear copper-gold, very fine dense yellowish head, leaving classical lace. A strange nose with cooked veggies from the mussel pot; overlying more habitual sweet-malty notes. Mossy, too. Rather sweet, even portlike flavour (for a young blond beer!) but fading away fast, leaving a very neutral to sweet malt flavour. Precious little specific aromaís, even when (again!) the cold isnít helping. Light to medium bodied, quite slick. Too fade for my preferences.
