      Overall Impression (3)
      Bright golden. Thick head. Malty, sweet aroma, with hints of Belgian spice, but mostly just fresh malt. Light body, low carbonation. Lots of sweet maltiness. Some diacetyl. Faint bananas. Faint ginger. Rather phenolic...rubbery. "Best before 18/10/2005"; it shouldn't be stale yet, but it tastes like there's a lot of O2 in the bottle.
