3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Perfect" head over seemingly average, pale, gold ale. Held to light the continually rising bubbles and clean simplicity of this beer shine through. Nose is of yeast and hops, with very little alcohol. Taste follows suit. But the palate is very complex with cereal and other similarities I can't put a finger on. I want to rerate a "kept" bottle. The alcohol is *very* well hidden, which make big gulps great. (Slight alcohol tingle on tounge, but 8.5%?). Clean and easy, good stuff.

Bottle, shared at July THT, in front of Kwartje. Last time I had this was probably in the ’90s. Clear golden yellow color. Off white head. Aroma’s: fruit, cardboard, perfumey. Retronasal there’s some cork, fruit, sweetness. Flavor is moderate sweet, a bit alcoholic. Medium bodied. I seem to remember this as a decent bière de garde, but this is just a bland strong blond.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Installing W10. What a dissapointment after hearing good things about it. Very alcoholic, with some herbal notes to improve it a bit but still nothing enjoy Pallleon (361) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2017
Aranyló szín, nagy, de gyorsan vékonyodó hófehér hab. Illata nem túl erőteljes, fűszeres, friss kenyeres. Édesen indul, majd onnan fordul száraz keserű utóízbe. Finom volt. ardeo (425) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2017
