a. Appears like a light beer. Nice head retention and straw like in color.

s. Smells of clean alcohal and malts. Just a bit hoppy.

t. Tastes of belgian style hop and malts. A bit of adjunct in there as well.

m. Mouthfeel is crisp and warming.

d. Drinkability is pretty solid. A brew to accompany a good meal. The review is a bit skewed since a good friend brought this back for me from his trip to belgium. There are better belgian brews out there.

Pours an amber color thats mosly clear. I didn't get much foamy head during the pour and didn't have on through the session. Lightly carbonated.

Aroma was light and malty.

Taste is pretty similar to aroma: light and malty.
There was a sutle hint of biscuits, and hops were light, This is a BPA.

Mouthfeel is light and a bit watery. Goes down clean.

This is an ok beer if I was at a party and I had to chose between beers, Iwould go with this one.

I found this single 330ml brown bottle at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL. Clearly marked best before date on the back label. This one says 9-14-2011 so it's plenty fresh.

The beer poured a clear, dark amber color that produced a 1-finger white head that lasted a minute or so and left some decent lacing.

The beer has a bit of skunkiness to it, but not as bad as a Heineken. Other than that, the beer has a mild biscuity malt smell along with a whiff of mixed fruit, and even milder herbs and spices.

Really nice flavor. Honey kissed biscuity malt is the predominant flavor but the sweetness is kept in check with a small dose of peppery spice. Not much hop presence until the finish when a bit of mild bitterness comes through. I'm not usually a fan of pale ales, but this one is good.

Light, crisp, and refreshing mouthfeel with lively carbonation.

Easy to drink and enjoyable to drink.

A sharply crystal clear light burnished copper in appearance. Lazy carbonation but with a massive off-white spongy bubbly head on the pour. It simmers down quickly enough to a loose thin cap, leaving concentric rings of lacing.

The aroma is faint, some light toffee malt, and later on some chocolate biscuit wafer, but that's it.

For a pale ale it tastes like a pretty good dunkel, the chocolate wafer translates predominanty into the flavour, crisp and biscuity, pretty much the whole way through. Rather one-dimensional, but what's there is charming enough.

A light but silky smooth mouthfeel, not a whole lot of body to it, but very quaffable as a result.

Very non-threatening, very approachable and accessible, a good ale to provide the uninitiated an introduction and some baby steps along their way.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It kind of looked like a beer that would lack taste or would come off too wheaty (which I like, but wasn't expecting).

But there was a nice balanced hoppiness to it. Tried as part of a beer tasting and this beer went over quite well with most of the beer drinkers involved. Good creamy malt beer.

Had poured on-tap at the Pint House in Fullerton, CA. Reviewed from notes.

A- Half a finger white head. Low retention. Light brown clear color.

S- Darker malts and molasses. Nut smells. Strangely sugary smells.

T- Honey sweet. Very clean flavor. Nice.

M- Medium bodied. Spicy carbonation.

O- Ok beer. Nothing to write home about.

Pours a fairly clear amber with lots of visible carbonation climbing towards a good sized off white head. The head has staying power and sticks to the glass.

Smells of yeast, grass and pepper. Perhaps a touch flowery as well. Not a very big aroma.

First noted in the taste is a faintly sweet honey/toffee flavour. This is followed ub by the peppery spice filling most of the mouth. A fairly bitter finish follows, bringing with it a hint of yeast character and faint alcohol. All together it is pretty pleasing.

Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style. Carbonation is lively, but not overdone.

Goes down well. Would be a very accessible Belgian for the uninitiated.

Poured a clear straw gold with a half a finger off white head that faded quickly, moderate lacing.

Aroma of malt and light hops.

Taste of lemon, gassy, bready malt and a very slight hint of hop bitterness.

Mouth Feel was light body, thin, medium carbonation, very crisp.

Overall a refreshing light beer, not much else.
