Beige creamy head. Amber to copper color, cloudy and not pasteurised. Aromas are mostly malty, some fruits and sweetness, alcohol is present. Tastes mostly like it smells, but hops are a bit more evident. Moderately bitter, herbal and floral hops. Some honey notes. Alcohol makes it a warmer. Medium body. Clean in its style, although not the best from De Molen in my opinion.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 17, 2016
11.2 oz. from Olivers Beverage in Albany, NY. Date on the bottle is 29/08/12. Pours a cloudy amber with a large tan head that lasted until the last sip and left a thick coating of foam behind as the glass was slowly emptied. Pleasant aroma of caramel wit a few spicy notes. The flavor is caramel and malt with just a bit of spice. Starts to dry out on the palate almost immediately. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Very solid.

popiela (823) - Pozna, POLAND - APR 13, 2016
Niezbyt obfita piana, klarowny bursztyn. Butelka 0,33l, butelkowana 29.08.13. Aromat ze szkła bardzo przyjemny, karmelowy, słodowy, z delikatną trawiastą chmielowością. W smaku jest słodowo, karmelowo, ale z dobrze zaznaczoną goryczką, po części alkoholową, ale przyjemną.

Une original handcrafted, classe par ratebeer en english strong ale. Malts pils et cara. Houblons saaz et premiant. Niveau abv de 7,5 % pour 16 plato, et 49 ebu. Mon exemplaire tait la moiti des 5 ans spcifis par le brasseur en validit. Couleur ambre roux (ebc 43), au lger trouble. Bulles fines monte lente. Mince toile diaphane en surface. Armes dherbes, malt cara, gentiane. 1re bouche souple lentame trs aromatique, fleurie, un rien anise. Arrire-bouche plus quilibre, mais assez fleurie. 2me toujours anise, et lamertume un rien piquante. Arrire-bouche qui touche au pale ale et au genivre. 3me plus terne, mais un rien plus malte. Arrire-bouche sans relle harmonie. Longueur qui tourne au pale ale de bon got, assez classique. Jambes fines, groupes. Levure douce, ligne correcte. Alcool bien, progressif, mais il ne domine pas son sujet. Finale sans grande surprise, dans la ligne. CONCLUSION: dpart tonnamment aromatique et original, pour une bire qui finit en pale ale classique, certes bien mais pas exceptionnel. Largement surcote sur ratebeer ...

Batavi (382) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Fles via biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in glas van De Molen. Donker amberkleurig troebel bier met een kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag die na enige tijd wegzakt tot een fijne schuimlaag. Aroma's van donker gedroogd fruit, karamel mout, florale hop, honing en wijn. Het smaakpallet is bitter en zoet tegelijk, die elkaar mooi in balans houden. Smaaktonen van gedroogd fruit, vijgen en pruimen, florale hopsoorten. Zacht mondgevoel met een medium carbonatie. De afdronk is droog, bitter met een licht peperige finish. Molenbier is een klassieker van Brouwerij De Molen, een aangenaam bier met een verfijnd aroma en een licht complex smaakpallet. Deze stijl English Strong Ale lijkt op een lichtere variant van de Barley Wine, qua alcohol, hop en Plato gehalte.

Fin (10315) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle via Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham, consumed at home Sunday 19th July 2015 Amber on the pour with a filmy head, a little toffee on the nose and in the mouth though with a spicy edge, yeasty and with a hop tingle. This is far better than I expected in fact I really like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
