Pours a copper colour, with a small head that fades soon, but leaves a good lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butter, red fruits. Medium to light body, thick palate. God carbonation. Taste is similar to the smell, adding notes of citrus. Good.

Bottle at a random bar in Antwerp. Last beer of the night. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light fruits and light grass hops. Flavor follows with some malt and honey sweetness, a bit of light fruits, and not much else. Finishes a little dirty. Body is light but the maltiness of this comes off as too sweet. Medium carbonation. Meh. No thanks.

330 ml. bottle poured into a Pint glass

Appearance... Copper colour beer with foamy head colour white of 2 fingers aprox

Aroma... malt , cider and caramel. herbal aroma predominance

Taste... Roasted malt notes and then hop , touch of bitterness is light.

Mouthfeel... medium/full body and soft carbonation

Overall... a malty pale ale, hops are maybe lacking in comparison with english and american pale. Nothing wrong but nothing extraordinary
