JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2003
Very pale amber, nearly ochre. Thick white head, tad irregular, going down lacey. Herbal nose, very grassy, very pilsy for an ale - 'Feinherb' in German wording. Later follows caramel-malt. Again, an ale in Pilsener disguise in the taste. This has NOTHING to do with the Courage Bulldog Strong ale anymore, it's positively German in character. As if a German brewer tried to brew an English ale with bottom-fermentation. It becomes sweeter warming up. Very clear palate, maybe a tad metallic,as a... you know. Not bad. But if you realise the ORIGINAL J.M. pale-ale was a very sweet 'strong' English bottle-conditioned brew, this beggars belief.

Amber coloured, firm head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flavour, like an English Pale should be. Pleasant thirst-quenching beer.
