look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Look - Pours a deep gold/amber with a short frothy white head, good amount of lacing
Smell - Sweet, floral, toast
Taste - Mild floral hops, slight fruitiness, more apple and pear than citrus or dark fruit, honey like sweetness takes over with a sweet toasted/biscuity malt aftertaste, good balance.
Feel - Medium body, soft carbonation, fairly crisp.

Overall - It reminds me of a cross between a Vienna or Amber lager and a Belgian pale ale. That isn't a bad thing in my book. Really unique and not too expensive where I live, nicely done.

From Corte Ingles El Duque, European feria. In Teku glass. After dinner, removing labels. Like an euro strong lager with some hints of belgian yeasty sugaryness. Drinks easy and without pain, but feels a bit a flat.

L: gives a clear amber color. Decent top of head with nice lacings on the glass.

S: bready malts, wort, caramel and light fruit notes.

T&F:malty from the start with some sweet fruit in the back sense some caramel to. Some light hops in the finish with some bitterness in the finish, really does not have a very exiting flavour and good enough balance. I would also like more of a taste that stocks in the mouth.

O: all Inn all a easy drinking beer, but not very exiting. I would not buy it again, Belgia has lot more exiting beers to offer
