3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught- Are we sure we’re all drinking the same beer? Moderately bitter aroma of Orange, caramel and crystal malt. Fruity flavour with some earthy hoppiness, quite sweet. Firm palate. Very nice and a great session beer. I can only assume that the poorer reviews are due inconsistency issues from the new brewery, because I’ve had this s number of times on draught and have found it nothing but lovely.
Bottle from Hippo Beers. Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aromas of light caramel, faint citrus. Taste is more of the same. Easy drinking. Lobster15 (66) - - JUN 3, 2017

Aroma reminiscent of a pilsner. Tastes like it. Just a tad more bitter. Low carbonation. After a few sip it went flat in my glass. Nicolas_M (199) - BELGIUM - APR 29, 2017
The aroma sadly reminded me of a strong Jupiler, so far from the best.
Luckily, the taste is different from the aroma, even if it could be compared to a good Pils beer with bitterness.
Palate is there, but weak.
Not bad, but not a must florent.janssens (347) - - APR 29, 2017
Ne mousse pas beaucoup et belle couleur jaune. Amertume fort présente . Ormis cette amertume qui reste bien, il n’y a pas grand chose.
