GOUDEN CAROLUS FESTIVA  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

8th (2022) Annual One-Off brew from Het Anker, with an ABV of 9.3%. New brew for me.

Pours a crystal clear deep golden blonde with a sizeable creamy bubbly head
which dissipates quickly but leaves a residual throughout but little in the way of
lacing.

Fresh crisp floral herbal hoppy malts spicy aroma. 

It's medium to full bodied, with a fizzy Champagne-like effervescent light and
soft filling mouthfeel. Complex, rounded and with excellent depth of flavour
there's lots of herbals, florals, spices, hops, malts, grains and fruity citrics.
As it warms, although probably best drank quite chilled, the champagne like
qualities and tastes become foremost with cream, butter, honey, toast and caramel.
Another superb top quality brew from an outstanding brewer! 

Cheers!
