2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear and fizzy pale yellow with a fantastic white head, sticks around for quite some time. The aroma is very grassy, I get a touch of lemony-citrus but little else. The flavour is not quite as disappoint6ing, but almost. The beer is quite grassy and grainy - similar to the Asian lagers. There is a strong grassy flavour, with a touch of vnilla and caramel, but there is not enough on the malt flavour to truly challenge the grassy hops which leaves an incredibly disappointing flavour on the palate. This could have been a fantastic beer but just did not have enough to challenge the grassy profile. Had promise, but did not pull through in the end - a glorified Steinlager.
Bottle from supermarket. sweet caramel mats, ligth bitterness, it’s a tipical on the style PotjeBier (3350) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2017

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 (363) - 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 (427) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2017
