Borresteijn (5853) - Zaandam, - FEB 1, 2013
33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele. Slightly hazy copper colour, white head. Aroma is full malty, light hoppy, dry, light floral, light fruity. Flavour is malty, dry, light floral, yeast, hint of citrus, light fruity, nice malty and hoppy bitter finish, dry. Light-bodied but with a decent mouthfeel. Nice and subtle beer, I’d like to have this as a substitute for pils in bars in most cases.
