XL PALE  t_u  t_u  t_u

Pale Ale brewed specially for the 40th Anniversary of de Dolle,
with an ABV of 6.5%. New brew for me.

Pours a very slightly cloudy deep golden blonde with a
huge bubbly frothy head. Great lacing.

Sweet malty spicy aroma.

It's thinnish bodied, and well carbonated with a soft fizzy
filling mouthfeel. Good level of complexity, and a nice depth
of flavour especially for the ABV. It's sweetish, yet tart
and dry with a bitter finish. Plenty of malts, citrus fruit,
caramel, honey, spices, herbals, florals, hops, candy, and
with a slight funk and strong earthy background. Nice brew!

Cheers!
