Blond with light haze. Aroma an flavour are less impactful that the XX version. This time its very light up front with very dry, floral hop coming through in the aftertaste.

The_Osprey (7811) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle share at Chrisos Pre-GBBF Shindig, Day 1. Thanks! As De Ranke XXX Bitter. Dark yellow, hazy, lightly sparkling, foamy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is dusty, crackers, light mint. Body is light, foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is tonic water, cracker malts, straw, earthy, spicy. OK. A bit light bodied and thin but it grew on me. (3.3)

[email protected] Pours hazy golden with lazing white head. Aroma has light malt, light bread, fruity yeasty esters and flowers. Taste is light malty with some biscuit and hoppy with citrus, flower and grass. Also quite fruity with yeasty esters. Finish is dry and has a long dry, hoppy bitterness keeping the fruit tastable.
