De Koninck

The 197th tasting here on the 40b40 is yet another beer I should have written up ages ago. De Koninck is not exactly hard to find.

The taste of this amber is in the neighbourhood of Palm Royale, though it's perhaps a little thinner than that. There's not a huge amount going on here, to be honest. It's somewhat flat, it's got a very mild maltiness, and then a pinch of bitterness in the aftertaste. I pick up no special notes beyond that. 5% alcohol doesn't overpower anything.

Overall, it's certainly drinkable. Just maybe not too memorable.

With only three beers to go until 200, I am now looking for suggestions as to which beer ought to be the one to mark the occasion. Ideas on a postcard, please...

  1. Greetings from Norway. A late comment on your post. Your are right, it is not a good beer. This beer is only good on draught. The bottled version is boring . Geir
