2.61/5  rDev -25%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Look: pale orange, reasonable head (poured in a tulip).
Smell: malty, some chewing-gum sweetness. Not particularly thrilled by it.
Taste: fruity hops and malt. Well balanced.
Feel: Medium bodied, rather as expected.
Overall: very decent, but I did not particularly like the smell. Still, quite good.

L - sunny yellow-gold clear beer, minimally frothy white head that dissipates quickly
S & T - slightly freshly floral on the nose, but doesn't really return on the tongue. Close to zero maltiness, very light; morning dewy grass hops; carbonated water kind of generic bitterness that lingers only slightly
F - spritzy water

O - quite disappointing. It's not quite as 'flink' as its name would want to label it as.

I'm afraid I can't recommend it.

This is the 2017 version which ended up becoming a session IPA with Galaxy and Mosaic. I don't know whether it was because I was drinking non-hoppy beers in Amsterdam or what, but this really hit the spot. Dry malts, grainy, not overly heavy in the body, punchy dank aroma, really nice tropical hops in the flavor. I think I drank about 4 in one sitting. Really broke up the monotony of Heinekens.
