From bottle. Aromas of vanilla and citrus. Pours a hazy pale with white head. The first taste was was quite sweet, but after a few sips it seemed more of a medium sweet. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, quite lively carbonation, a dry finish. Overall a nice beer, but could the carbonation could be toned down somewhat.

I'll have to revisit this one in the future.

33cl bottle bought in The Netherlands. Poured into a chalice.

A – Slightly cloudy golden colour with no head at all even after a careful pour but medium carbonation.

S – Sugars, malts with burnt caramel and some mild esters.

T – Heavy sweet malt flavour with a lot of candy sugar front. Good caramel, toffee flavour with mild spice and some esters again following the nose. Also some vanilla and biscuit flavours in the mix.

MF – Medium body with good carbon tingle but limited linger.

O – Decent enough for the style but not the best you will ever come across.
