Gangstergafje (1184) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2017
17-09-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Auchan, Lille, France).
The looks of the beer are nice. They aren't to special. The beer has a nice golden yellow colour and it is quite clear. A nice soft white layer of foam is formed on top of the beer. After a while a delicious creamy soft drape is left. Nice lacing is left on the glass.
The smell of the beer is nice. It smells familiar. I smell some nice sweet malts together with some nice hops. The hops give nice fruity aromas, both acidic and bitter. There is also a sour-like thing going on...it is familiar but I don't know exactly what it is. I also smell a slight metal aroma, not to strong, but it is present... Not to special.
The taste of the beer is fine. Not great, but definitely not bad. There are some nice sweet malts, with a touch of honey. Besides this there are nice bitter and slightly sour fresh hops, and again that slightly sour familiar thing...don't know what it is. Again there is some metal there to, a bit to much. I don't like this flavour that much. The flavours are balanced, but there is something with it that I don't like fully. There are better beers.
The palate is average...medium body, slightly sticky and average carbonation. The finish is pretty much like the taste, with in the end a bit dry bitterness and some metal. All in all, not a bad beer, but not a great one. There is better on the marked I'm afraid. JDsz5 (46) - - SEP 15, 2017
Aroma 2. Appearance 3. Taste 3. Palate 2. Overall 7. Too sweet and metallic taste. Piepenhenrich (587) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
Comes in 75cl bottle with cork. Well-balanced flavors which I liked, yet nor particularly outstanding. rodenbachvintage (80) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2017
middelmatig bier, weinig tot geen nasmaak. Een bier na dertien in een dozijn.
Iets te zoet & metaalsmaak naar mijn smaak. martpez (263) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Lively sharp strong blonde ale. A style I like. This is an adequate but not great example of it with slight metallic taste. Overall its on the sweet end with a nice bit of fizz to it. Still very decent brew!

330 mml bottle. Tasted on the 12/08/2017 at home. Clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast and grains with a floral touch. Taste is intense yeasty and floral. Aftertaste is slightly watery and metallic. Next one please! Mishnok (355) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Shared a large bottle of this. Quite a bready aroma. A citrus, grassy taste and typically Bierce de garde. Good summer drinking
