1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale amber ale, with a yellowish head.
Really faint aroma, with hints of herbs, and maybe some smoke/wood.
Really ligth body, fairly carbonated but way too thin. Still looking for the finish.
This is not the pale ale I was looking for, and the fist word that came to my mind was "watery".

A decent Belgian ale with hints of Duvel but darker and weaker. It’s not a bad beer but better beers are to be found in the same style.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The beer in the glass is copper-colored, with snow-white foam. It smells hoppy, fruity and quite mild. Starts with a lot of CO2, hoppy, spicy, slightly fruity, slightly watery. The middle part is also hoppy-mild, subtle watery, slightly spicy. Goes into a mild spicy-hoppy, slightly fruity finish!
