3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottiglia: Hazy, golden to deep golden, big rocky and stable off-white head, herbal grapefruity hoppy aromas with a delicate malty (almost chocolatey) background; moderate - not too dry - bitter-sweet flavour, too light bodied; grapefruity-malty finish with a slight tartness. Nice brew, but too thin…

Tap @ Luppolo 12.
Rated on 01.04.2014.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Sweet fruity aroma, hops and resin too with mild juicy notes. Caramel malt flavor, sweet orange and resinous hops. Decent, though a bit too sweet.

Draught Small head, very fast gone over (cold) hazy pale-orange beer. Nutty nose, slighly oxydized malts, followed after some time by UK-like hops; further caramel. Very nice lightly bitter in the British way, but with a strange retronasal flavour, very outspokenly reminiscent of peanut butter. Not really light body; good carbonation. Strange, but certainly not bad - makes a good ’quaffing’ ale.

My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins surround the mild malt sweetness in this smooth and moderately bitter American-style Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A pillowy head of foam slowly sinks into the hazy blond orange.
-Some caramel undertones are felt.
-The handpump serving imparts a very smooth mouthfeel.
-I am used to enjoying more hop aromatics from the style, so the politely citrusy nose was a little too subdued for my tastes.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy but never overbearing.
On cask at the brewpub.

Bottle. Medium high white and lasting head. Clear golden body. Fruity aroma with grassy notes. Mild but fairly hopped barley malt flavor with caramel low carbonation and a long dry aftertaste.

Hoppy aroma. Small white head. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance and hoppy with a crisp and slightly bitter malt finish.

Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a very lively champagne like clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt with a little citrus and caramel. The flavour is medium bitter, big malt, nutty, alcoholic and with some toffee in the finish. It sounds great, but in all honesty, I didn’t like it that much.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled GBBF 09. A hazy light amber coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma has as hint of spice but not much else. The taste has some bitterness but again a lot of nothingness. Pretty poor and dull.
