At Keepers, Tomares. Malty, sweet caramel notes, very smooth feel, easy to drink. I miss a more bitter end, less mild, but its pleasant. Maybe, light cherries in nose. Good, long lasting and smooth foam

Interestingly, this beer tastes watery from the barrel; From the bottle it is like a different drink, it has more body and flavour and deserves its title as Antwerp's beer.

Beautiful dark amber colour and a full head in the beginning, but this quickly turns into a thin layer. Smell of caramel, cherries, malt and some brown apple. Taste has the same flavours, though it is less sweet than you would expect. It is actually very well balanced. Mouth feel is medium and smooth. Not a very complex beer, but it is meant to be an alternative for the basic pilsener in a bar, and it does a very good job at that.
