1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles.
Aroma: light grain and soap.
Appearance: very small, light-brown, initial head that completely disappeared within seconds. No lacing. Hazy, bubbly, dark-amber/light-brown body.
Taste: moderately sweet, initial flavor and lightly sour, grape-bubble-gum and soap-like finish. Long duration.
Palate: light bodied with watery texture, lively carbonation and light alcohol finish.
Overall: I wouldn’t drink this again. It reminded me of a time when I was three years old and my mom washed out my mouth with a bar of Dial soap for swearing. That day I cried. I wish I could do that now since this beer was so disappointing. Maybe I’ll just swear instead.

Easy going ESB for the masses, can be found in most Dutch supermarkets. The label is nice, but the beer is a bit too average. Malty, mildly hoppy and a bit muddy.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought in 500ml bottles. For me it’s very full-bodied, which is not what I usually enjoy, but found this one to be pleasant.
