I expected it to be more bitter. Citrus, grass, resin and hops, but not a strong and complex taste.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2010
330 ml bottle @ home.
Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a medium-sized off-white head. Fruits, dry hops, caramel malts and some yeast on the nose. Medium sweet flavour of dry hops, caramel and spices. Bitter finish. Light/medium bodied, oily to watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very decent low-ABV brew from De Molen again.

KyotoLefty (9642) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2010
Draught at the brewery. Orange-amber color with a tight, high, head. Nice aroma of grapefruit, pineapple. Very dry and bitter flavor. grapefruit zest dominates. really hoppy, with no residual sugar, making it really dry as well. Dry fruitiness tries to balance, but cant quite do it. Slightly harsh finish. Very clean and dry--I would prefer a bit more sweetness.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2010
In short: A surprisingly nourishing and well hopped pale ale style beer
How: Tap at the brewery/brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy golden blonde body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention
In long: The delicate but nice hoppy nose has leafy and fruity notes. Body is pleasantly full (for a below 5% beer) and the carbonation is appropriately smooth. Taste has plenty of slightly toasted cereals with a smooth caramel and some tropical fruits. Ends with a smooth medium bitterness that is slightly fruity, slightly leafy, slightly resinous,. Could pass as Pale Ale. Very nice beer, I could drink that all night. With a beer like this freshness has a lot to do with the enjoyment factor. On tap on location I thought it was really good but Im not sure if Id bother to buy a bottle in North America. So De Molen names a kick-ass Bitter after a country when nice Bitters are almost impossible to find. Ok. Kind of funny. And I also really liked the food at the pub. To even things out they should come up with a nice dish and call it the Brytysh plate.

Nuffield (4107) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Im not a hop head so this was my most challenging beer at De Molen this day, but it isnt simpleminded, with a frontal fruitiness to counter the big time hoping and lingering bitterness. Decent, from my non-hop headedness. (on tap at brewery)
